Angels and Fragillity
Bénédicte Blanc-Fontenille is a French artist living and working in Miami. She draws her inspiration from a reflection on the fragility of the human being and his culture.
‘’Fragility appears to me as an energy, an engine which propels the human being and generates the movement, as life is nothing but movement.’’
This Fragility is the ultimate paradox that can both build and destroy, the fold that needs to unfold which awakens knowledge to acquire achievement. This Newtonian energy is never definitive or permanent but rather in a constant state of renewal, revival and revision. This movement of energy represent a succession of moments. ‘’Time has only one reality, that one of the moment.’’ G. Bechelard.
Following that trend, each of her peaces could be called ‘’a passage’’ or ‘’a snapshot’’ and all vulnerability contained in those words. In her work, lines, colors, rocks, architecture or silhouettes of humans are spectators witnessing the fugacité of each present moment in which lurks the projection of the future.’
