CAROLE DUHAYER

Born in 1978, Carole Duhayer lives and works in Paris, she traveled throughout Europe and the United States before studying Design at the Nissim de Camondo school in Paris, studying painting at the School of Fine Arts in Paris also.


It was while visiting Serge Poliakoff's exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art that she had a real aesthetic shock.A few months later, she presented some of her drawings at a collective exhibition taking place at the Galerie Couteron rue Guénégaud in Paris.
 

Her diploma obtained in 2005 at the Ecole Camondo, influenced her as she still experiments with notions of color, space and form, mixing these disciplines in the same formal research around the motif and the ornament and questions the decorative reinterpretation claimed by Klee or Matisse.Her activity in art extends to the world of design where she has collaborated on international projects with Philippe Starck, Tino Zervudachi, Gilles & Boissier, samsung in design and aeronautics.

Her plastic research brings together the scientific and artistic world in a methodical and synthetic approach.The plant, the cell, the growth inspire her to create designs with ornamental shapes and colours are articulated in a quest for movement, for a dynamic design, it is a narration of the pictorial motif towards a dance form.

Carole Duhayer evokes the mechanics of desire where the balance of shapes and colors is subtle and infinite.Colour as a motif to develop pictorial poetry, a subtle hybridization between baroque and minimalism...
