Megève (74120)

The spectator is filled with wonder, transported by the luxurious beauty of nature, towards an imagined Japan in a dozen large paintings. Blurred human figures blend into a natural setting, landscapes abound with plant life, close-ups of real and imagined plant textures, still lifes where the natural world spills over into an intimate interior. Rêveries is a timeless journey, a tribute to the dreamlike beauty of the plant world.
Aurélie Mathigot revisits the enchanting spectacle of nature, inspired by Monet's garden in Giverny as well as Fantin-Latour's still lifes. With curved lines, reflections of the sky and plants in the water, abundant textures,
intense colours, and asymmetrical compositions. The spectator is invited to wander from painting to painting, and dream. The spectator
merges with eternally sleeping human figures, carried weightlessly by rocking water, observing, at one with the landscape. Becoming one with this vibrant world for a dreamy moment, they see from nature's perspective. When they return to reality, they want to maintain the memory of their wonder. In the muffled mineral setting of the chapel, Aurélie Mathigot endeavours to immortalise the ephemeral beauty of the organic world in the interior space.
