Anne-Lise Coste


22 February – 31 May 2020

No matter what technique Anne-Lise Coste (*1973 in Marignane, lives and works in Orthoux, FR) uses, whether it is airbrush, spray paint, pastel, paint, acrylic, ink, pencil or oil, her drawings and texts are often reminiscent of graffiti and urban space. These compositions of simple and schematic forms and / or words are part of the long history of Art Brut, which begins with Jean Dubuffet (1901-1985) and continues through AR Penck (1939-2017) to Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988).

With spontaneous gestures, she expresses subjective moods on paper, canvas or directly on the wall. Mixed with sharp-tongued comments on current, but also past social and political events, Coste creates a unique work that radiates irony, rebellion, and emotion. This immediate visual language establishes a catalog of contemporary anxieties, blending power and fragility, violence as well as sensuality, and a poetic sense with social criticism.
