Caitriona Platts Manoury and Christian Manoury invite you to the Maison des Consuls in Eygalières from 2 to 14 June from 10am to 1pm and from 3pm to 7pm.
A marriage between precision and imprecision
Caitriona has been a ceramist for over 30 years. As she says, "With a piece of clay you can do anything, all you need is an idea and you can make anything you want." Of Irish origin, she is a graduate of Central Saint Martins in London. She arrived in Provence 23 years ago and finds inspiration in the beauty of the landscape and the vibrant colours it offers. Having worked for decorators, she now makes totem pole sculptures of all shapes and
and different types of earthenware. "I have a lot of fun doing this," she exclaims. It's her childlike side that comes out, like a young girl playing with play dough. Caitriona is a sunny person and this is evident in her creations. Happy, cheerful, colourful, bright, she puts all her love into them and transmits her joie de vivre. Married for 25 years, as they both say, "it's a long story". Christian started out as a fashion stylist for many years. He then created theatre sets, but one thing has never left him: painting. For him, "painting is something necessary, like breathing or eating. Creating acrylic, abstract and large format works, for this humble little character, "each painting is an adventure. Compared to many artists, there is no message to be conveyed in his works, "I paint in series, as soon as the series bores me I move on." One of the characteristics of Christian Manoury is that he always paints while singing to Debussy, Satie,
Glass and many others.
