A presentation of abstract paintings and drawings by French poet and philosopher Eugénie Paultre.
The first monograph of celebrated French Poet and philosopher Eugénie Paultre, Outline presents 80 of Paultre's recent paintings and drawings, created in 2016 and 2017.
A master of colour, Paultre's abstract works feature carefully selected lines of colours that create beautifully balanced and evocative visuals. Paultre applies the same philosophical insight and poetic prowess used in her academic and creative writing to her painting, resulting in powerful, meditative works.
This book features an introductory text by Emmanuel Daydé and notes by Eugénie Paultre in both English and French. Published to coincide with the exhibition Outline by Eugénie Paultre showcasing a selection of works featured in the book at HENI Gallery from 20 April to 13 May 2018.
