Spring, painting by Ali Benyahya

Ali Benyahya

I try to outline the intrinsic beauty in things, simply and without pretention.

I often start with quick sketches on the terrain, and it’s in my quiet studio, working from memory,
that I put the emotion into my paintings.   I try to work each day, sincerely and honestly, not to communicate
a vision or create a surprise, but to work in contact with myself.

Those who appreciate my paintings give them a life, and that’s where my satisfaction is.  Each work is a challenge, a reassesment.
Where others use words and phrases to communicate, I use colour.

Elisabeth Brzeczkowski

Diplômée de la Faculté d’Architecture de l’Ecole Polytechnique de Gdansk (Pologne),I draw and paint in parallel with my career as an architect.
I have developed over several years a theme based on landscapes, memories and plants.   I try to translate, through realistic works, the majesty and mystery
found in things that seem ordinary.
I often use black and white to evoke reality from a metaphysical distance.
I use pastels, lead pencils and Chinese ink on largescale paper (100x70cm).

Some works are designed as variations on a theme, and offer a new perspecive when exposed as dual ou triptique canvasses.

Drawing by hand what people have in their heads is magic, and draws strong emotions from the viewer.
