Libby Page - “Zeitraum” Gallery Inspiré 5 rue de Grippis, Azille, France 1 Nov - 25 Jan 2019/20


Introduction "I am delighted to welcome amazing artiste and good friend Libby Page back to Gallery Inspiré, I have been excited to chat about this new exhibition of works lately and regularly tell people proudly, "this will be Libby's 6th year of exhibiting with us here " to which Libby informed me that it will be our 7th !!!!! How time flies ! How our lives change and how strong our connections can become. This exhibition of new works celebrates all of these things in a truly original and unique PAGE style, journeys, travel, new horizons and new directions. Libby's famous bright colours, her love of landscape and representation of this region still adorning her inspirational canvasses, whilst engaging with the viewer to pose interesting and thought provoking questions.

Je suis ravie d'accueillir l'artiste et bonne amie Libby Page à la galerie Inspiré. J'ai eu le plaisir de discuter de cette nouvelle exposition d'œuvres récemment et je le répète régulièrement:" Ce sera la sixième année que Libby expose avec nous ici ", ce à quoi Libby m'a informé que ce serait notre 7ème !!!!! Comme le temps passe vite ! Comme nos vies changent et combien nos liens peuvent devenir forts. Cette exposition de nouvelles œuvres célèbre toutes ces choses dans un style PAGE original et unique, des voyages, de nouveaux horizons et de nouvelles directions. Les célèbres couleurs vives de Libby, son amour du paysage et sa représentation de cette région ornent toujours ses toiles inspirantes, tout en engageant le spectateur à poser des questions intéressantes et stimulantes.

How many of us in this day and age have space? room in our lives? to think, to look, to stop? even just for a few minutes. "Zeitraum" touches upon this ….. but goes much deeper and allows us the viewer to slow down and to engage and enjoy Page's paintings. It is fitting that this years exhibition takes place in our new gallery and also celebrates our next jouney and Libby's continuing journey with us."

Combien d'entre nous en 2019 ont du temps libre ?, dans nos vies ? penser, regarder, s'arrêter? même juste pour quelques minutes. "Zeitraum" parle de cela ... mais il a l'air beaucoup plus profond et nous permet en tant que spectateur de ralentir, de nous engager et d'apprécier les peintures de Page. Il est normal que l'exposition de cette année se déroule dans notre nouvelle galerie et célèbre également notre prochain voyage celui-ci continu entre Libby et nous. "

Artist’s Statement There is a word in German which is quite thought provoking when heard with my english ears: “Zeitraum” Zeit = Time Raum = Room So that makes ….. T I M E R O O M….. a room, for time!

Déclaration de l'artiste Il y a un mot en allemand qui est assez provocant quand je l'entend avec mes oreilles d’anglaise: "Zeitraum" Zeit = time = le temps / l’heure Raum = room = chambre Cela fait donc… une pièce, pour le temps!


Light Field 60cm x 120cm oil on canvas

2200€ - SOLD


“Zeitraum” is translated simply as “period” or “span” or “lapse”, but it has inspired in me a much more expansive definition.

“Zeitraum” se traduit simplement par “période” mais il m’a inspiré une définition beaucoup plus large.


Vignes, Azille 60cm x 110cm oil on canvas

2000€


In english, we think of the word “period” to mean the time between two points in time, however, I read somewhere that “Zeitraum” means the time between two points in space….. It’s quite mind blowing if you think about it, which I have been.

En anglais, nous pensons que le mot «période» signifie le temps qui sépare deux instants. Mais «Zeitraum» signifie un temps entre deux points géographiques. Je le trouve époustouflant.


La Pluie 50cm x 100cm oil on canvas

1500€


“Zeitraum” made me think about the head-space that time spent traveling from A-B can give us. Time to read, time to stare out of the window, time to process the past or ponder the future, time just to be.

“Zeitraum” m'a fait penser à l’espace-temps disponible quand nous voyageons entre le point A et le point B. Le temps de s’ennuyer, le temps de lire, le temps de regarder par la fenêtre, le temps de penser au passé ou de réfléchir au futur, le temps pour simplement être.


Road Trip 40cm x 70cm oil on canvas

840€


I met my love during one such “Zeitraum” and that meeting has led to many more journeys from A - B, quite specifically from Azille to Berlin, and back again.

J'ai rencontré mon amour lors d'un tel «Zeitraum» et cette rencontre m’a emmené à effectuer de nombreux autres voyages de A à B, plus précisément d'Azille à Berlin.


Tripping The Light Fantastic (Pigasse 2019) 60cm x 80cm oil on canvas

1400€


My “commute” from the studio in Berlin down to Azille, France for annual exhibitions entails two blissful days of driving where no other activity is possible and with nothing to focus on but the road. It has become an open-eyed meditation; letting thoughts bubble up and away and absorbing the beauty of the passing landscapes with gratitude.

Mon trajet entre le studio Berlinois et Azille, en France, pour mes expositions annuelles, implique deux jours de conduite bienheureuse où aucune autre activité n'est possible et où il n'y a rien pour se concentrer, que la route. C’est devenu un moment de méditation, les yeux ouverts, qui consiste à laisser les pensées bouillonner et à absorber la beauté des paysages, avec gratitude, qui défilent.


Autumnal Light 60cm x 70cm oil on canvas

1300€


Held in balance, certain opposites create interesting tensions within a painting. In this body of work we experience; the stillness of sitting in the driving seat, hurtling down the autobahn, the sunrise exploding over and through the concrete and glass, the quiet excitement of being on an adventure, anticipation and contentment.

Dans ces œuvres, nous percevons, nous sentons; L’apaisement que procure le fait de s’assoir sur le siège du conducteur, avalant à toute vitesse les kilomètres sur l’autoroute, le lever du soleil explosant sur et à travers le béton et le verre de l’espace urbain, l'excitation tranquille d'être dans une aventure, l’anticipation et le contentement.


Dream Canal 90cm x 120cm oil on canvas

3240€


Here we touch the moment of release when the mind moves from high-focus-workmode into the more open state of appreciation, we feel the opening of the heart that happens when we acknowledge something beautiful.

Nous touchons ici le moment de la libération lorsque l'esprit passe du mode travail concentré de l'état d'appréciation plus ouvert; nous sentons l'ouverture du cœur qui se produit lorsque nous reconnaissons quelque chose de beau.


À la Lune 70cm x 100cm oil on canvas

2100€


“Zeitraum” is a room without walls, a loosely bound container for expansive thoughts and emotions, defined only by the time we allow for it.

«Zeitraum» est une pièce sans murs, un contenant pour nos pensées aux émotions grandioses, défini uniquement par le temps que nous lui avons accordés.


After The Rain 40cm x 70cm oil on canvas

840€


>> Smile. It is appropriate that I am sitting on a train as I write this, next to my love, who has just tapped my arm to show me the light caught up in the clouds.

>> Je souris. Il est à point nommé que je sois assise dans un train pendant que j'écris ceci. Je suis à côté de mon amour, qui vient de me faire remarquer la lumière capturée par les nuages.

British Artist Libby Page has a passion for trees, vibrant colours and the good impact they both have on our well being. She pushes at the boundaries of traditional landscape moving beyond simple representation. Her oil paintings capture the felt experience of being in nature, awakening a yearning to be enveloped in colour and light. Born in Europe, Page moved from England to Southern France in 2006 absorbing the light that has inspired so many artists before her. In 2016 she also took a studio in Berlin where her work brings nature’s benefits to the the homes of the city dwellers. She has exhibited in many group shows and been offered fifteen solo exhibitions in the last seven years. Her work is in private collections throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia and America. Many have testified to the uplifting, soul restoring effect that her paintings have and she loves working in partnership with her clients to provide the desired ambience for their specific space. Libby Page believes art is a balm to our busy lives, she makes work that gives us hope. Even in the city, Page highlights the elements of nature that lift up our eyes and our hearts bringing beauty and the healing properties of the natural world into our interior environments.
