Strange landscapes and fantastical creatures populate Héloïse Delègue's work. She has a rich, lyrical, highly imaginative inner world that is expressed through a series of abstract and figurative works.
Delègue uses pastel-coloured paints and an assemblage of semi-recognisable references to…Show more create deliberately dream-like scenarios. Faces and human forms are transformed into surreal shapes. Snatches of text are left unreadable.
Delègue explains: "I endeavour to confuse the viewer into having to look at my work from different angles until, like a jigsaw puzzle, the abstracted pieces begin to fall into place."Show less
"Héloïse Delègue is a London based artist that skillfully riffs between her textural memories, both past and present. Using a voyeuristic process of autofiction, Delègue dissects not just her own vulnerabilities, but equally, their wider contexts. Particularly the reconciliation of a systemic hierarchy that has entrapped gender relations today. Delègue's portrayal of a strange and fantastical landscape unearths a rich tapestry that intensifies the possibility of imagination. Likewise, her use of diverse media enhances this compositional form, producing new relationships that echo the exhaustive liminality of our contemporary scene. Simultaneously revealing and concealing, Delègue's work provides a rewarding insight into a world that brims with possibility and only teases at catharsis. "
