PURE WHITE

“Pure White” is a sensation of weightlessness and lightness, confronted with the power and strength of nature. Caroline Notté highlights the simplicity and elegance of the landscape by emphasizing the graphic aspect.

Through large black and white formats, the visuals suggest the immensity of glaciers and an abstract conceptualization of landscapes. By choosing white as the guiding thread, the artist presents these decorations in an infinite declination of nuances and tones, providing a timeless sensation of purity.

 

This “non-colour” suggests minimalism and becomes an accomplice of the light evolving according to the shadows, adhering to the concept of “less is more” by Mies van der Rohe.

The photographer brings back the essence of these prints in order to reveal them as an aesthetic perfection imprinted with an evanescent poetry and a touch of surrealism.

By letting her emotion speak, Caroline Notté accurately transcribes the majesty of this site.

 

Let yourself be carried to the immensity of these landscapes…

 

Pure White est une sensation d’apesanteur et de légèreté, confrontée à la puissance et à la force de la nature. 

Au travers de grands formats noirs et blancs, les visuels suggèrent l’immensité des glaciers et une conceptualisation abstraite des paysages.

En choisissant le blanc comme fil conducteur, l’artiste présente ces décors sous forme d’une déclinaison infinie de nuances et de tonalités, procurant une sensation intemporelle de pureté.

Cette « non couleur » suggère le minimalisme et se fait complice de la lumière en évoluant en fonction des ombres. (suggérant également el minimalisme et se faisant complice de la lumière qui évolue en fonction des ombres, ces prises de vues se font partisantes  du concept « les sis more » de Ies van der Rohe.

Adhérant au concept « less is more » de Mies van der Rohe,

la photographe fait rejaillir l’essence même de ces estampes afin de nous les dévoiler comme une perfection esthétique empreinte d’une poésie evanescente et d’une touche de surréalisme.

Pure white » dégage comme une sensation d’apesenteur et de légereté tout en confrontant la puissance et la forme de la nature.

Elle met en évidence l’épure et l’élégance de ces paysages en mettant l’accent sur l’aspect graphique.

En laissant parler son émotion, elle retranscrit de manière la plus juste la majesté de ce site. 

Laissez-vous porter à l’immensité de ces paysages ….

TRAFFIC JAM IN MANHATTAN

TRAFFIC JAM IN MANHATTAN

Capturing the small details of the Big City in a personal and spontaneous way, she roams the streets of Manhattan in search of unique moments as if they were stolen from the real life of New York.

Seeking for the anonymity of this city, fascinated by the perpetual evolution of it, the clichés gather the most characteristic signs to describe the hidden personality of Manhattan, this precise moment when The Big Apple agrees to shine under an intimate sky.

 “Traffic jam in Manhattan” are unusual images of an America “stars and stripes”, snow-covered streets, traffic jams and  vertical facades on Park Avenue but also clichés with pure geometry softened by a human presence or a bit of anarchist nature that lingers in the heart of the city.

A constant attraction for the vast perspectives, urban configurations, lines in abundance, the bright and contrasting colours that Manhattan offers to the camera of Caroline Notté

Result of superb large format prints, some in colour others black and white, appears the taste of the artist for the vast perspectives and urban configurations of this city like no other one.

 

Saisissant de manière personnelle et spontanée les petits détails de la Big city, elle arpent e en long et en large les rues de la ville de Manhattan à la recherche d’instants uniques comme dérobés u réel de la vie new-yorkaise

Résultat de superbes tirages grands formats, les uns en couleurs les autres en noir et blanc, laissant paraitre le gout de l’artiste pour les vastes perspectives et les configurations urbaines de cette cité pas comme les autres.

 

Guettant l’anonymat de cette ville, fascinée par la perpétuelle évolution de la ville, les clichés rassemblent les signes les plus caractéristiques pour décrire la personnalité cachée de la ville, ce moment précis où Big Apple consent à briller sous un ciel intime. Traffic jam in Manhattan ce sont des images insolites d’une Amérique stars and strippes, de rues enneigées et d’embouteillage, de façades verticales de Park avenue mais aussi des clichés à la géométrie pure et dure adoucie d’une présence humaine ou d’un peu de nature anarchiste qui s’attarde au cœur de la ville

Un attrait constant pour les vastes perspectives, les configurations urbaines, lignes en abondances,  les couleurs vives et contrastées que Manhattan offre à son objectif

ROBIE WALL LAMP BY FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT

robie_wall_lamp

The principle of Frank Lloyd Wright’s “Organic Architecture” was to design buildings where all the parts were integral to the structure and to the building’s very “nature”. Embracing old craft and new technology, Yamagiwa is pleased to present this collection of Wright’ s lighting fixtures in the spirit of that pursuit.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation has been offering reproductions of Wright’ s decorative designs through its licensees since 1985. After many successful endeavors, there was a strong desire to offer the public lamps that had been designed for prominent residences designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Each of these light fixtures had been crafted as an integral part of its building, using glass, wood, metals, and methods “challenging” to the requirements of large scale production. This challenge having been considered, the Foundation created a partnership with the Yamagiwa Corporation, who, after careful research and engineering, are pleased to offer this Collection for the enjoyment of a wide audience.

I LOVE ZOUTE

Amazed by the look of Zoute, its constant rhythm of apartments and sheds in an endless row, this exhibition shares the passion of Caroline Notté with a patchwork of graphic and surreal images made from a swirl of colours and clichés. With this new work, she shows her fascination about the power of nature and its abstract beauty.
