TOUCHING DOWN



It’s time for A-Gent of Style to go back to London. But first, let’s get on that long escalator at Eurostar Paris Gare du Nord now signposted as ‘Hall Britain’. Confusing, misleading and very odd.

“A LONDONER IN PARIS”: REMEMBRANCE OF THINGS PAST



Last week in Paris as A-Gent of Style went to the sexy and moody Hotel Costes to meet the talented and charming Mark D Sikes, one of his inspirational bloggers, he came across the French visual artist Sabine Pigalle after picking up the glossy Palace Costes magazine. I was immediately mesmerised by her latest series ‘Timequakes’ that she conceived just after the Japanese earthquake and tsunami of March 2011.

In her latest exhibition at the Art Paris Art Fair at the Grand Palais, her work deals with the reinterpretations of mythology and religious history and creating hybrid contemporary photographs produced from portraitures mostly from recognizable classical paintings – some Flemish, others Mannerist – from the late 15th to the early 17th century mixed up with Tokyo’s shaky lights.

I like the fact that her works deals with the past and the present, figuration and abstraction, painting and photography and I was particularly drawn too to the clothes her sitters wear. Have a close look at the magnificent silks, brocades, velvets, sheers and embroideries. Quel spectacle!
