Istanbul, Turkey, 2012/13
Mixed media series with carborundum prints, collage and acrylic.
Agathe Bouton likes changing skies - leaden, menacing skies, veiled by clouds.
It is in these moments that the nuances of the city are discovered, a palette of subtle greys that she uses to create her landscapes.
She evokes a forgotten city, the nostalgia for time that passes, a veiled intimacy, hidden behind these abstract facades.
Istanbul - a city of multiple reflections.
In this series, Agathe has left aside engraving for now and returned to painting.
Acrylic paint worked lightly, playing with transparence, and with collages of recycled paper.
