ART BOOK / THE PAINTING OF CLAIRE PETIT

THE PROJECT

I have been longing to bring my paintings together in a book, it was February and I was thinking of a little book. In March, Covid landed in our lives... I started to look back through thirty years of my work. A long selection process, until slowly, finding a balance and the smooth running of the images. The days passing, the work grew bigger,  the little book became a 144-page book - a retrospective. 

I wanted it white, white like a canvas before the first touch of paint.

THE BOOK

Published by éditions Empreintes & Digitales, this classy and sober 10" x 11" book  comes with a contemporary cover, a binding with a square back sewn glued, 144 inside pages printed on a soft 170g satin paper. An edition of 500 copies.  Essays are written by Paul Powell and Michel Spielmann both translated in English and French. More than 100 paintings selected from 30 years of work, some of which are accompanied by selected words and poems.

In the book, different periods and series rub shoulders. Here, duality breathes deeply and strong feminine energy dominates from one life to the next, multiple, moving and often wrapped in gentle violence. The Twin inside -

Starting almost 8 months ago, we worked hand in hand with a fantastic art advisor and an amazing graphic designer.
