Axelle’s Winter Group Show features paintings, sculptures and prints by Michel Delacroix, Fabienne Delacroix, Patrick Pietropoli, Yves Crenn, Laurent Dauptain, Philippe Jacquet, Laurent Hours, Xavier Rodes and Beth Carter.
We are also pleased to introduce works by two new artists, Sabine Jaccard and Claudio Locatelli.
We welcome French photographer Jaccard’s beautiful black and white images from her series, Théatre d’eau (water theatre). Her work is inspired by her travels to New York, London, St Petersburg, Rome and the Canary Islands, her love of theatre and her interest in the aesthetic possibilities of light and shadow. During her ten years as a student of English literature at Oxford, Paris and London universities, she held internships with professional photographers in architecture, fashion, advertisement and portraiture. In 2000, Jaccard completed her studies by participating in the Rencontres Internationales de la Photographie in Arles, France. Following her first exhibition in 2002, her work has been consistently shown in galleries throughout Europe. Since 2007, Jaccard has printed her black and white photos in her own photo lab. In 2013, her works will be shown at art galleries in New York and Boston, as well as in Seattle, where she has recently been appointed visiting photography professor at Seattle University.
Axelle is proud to present Locatelli’s stunning collection of wire brace and papier-mâché animals. French multimedia artist Locatelli studied sculpture at L’Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Beaux-arts de Paris. Since his graduation in 1999, his work has been regularly exhibited in Paris in galleries such as Galerie Eric de Montbel, Galerie Aittouares, Galerie Francis Barlier, Galerie du Fleuve and Musée de la Halle Saint Pierre. Since 2004, Galleria Forni has exhibited his work in contemporary art fairs including St’Art Strasbourg, Arte Fiera Bologna, Art Verona, Amsterdam Art Fair, London Art Fair and Art Brussels. He has also participated in group exhibits organized in France, Belgium, Spain and the Netherlands. In 2006, the city of Nantes commissioned an outdoor sculpture for the Artec Festival. He currently works in a wide range of mediums, including terra cotta, paper-mache, wood, pencil drawings and watercolour.
