ANNE DELABY ART CAPITAL 2018


Anne Delaby was born in 1964 in Lebanon. After returning to France in his Normandy of origin, drawing is a necessity from an early age. He follows various drawing schools, but the real encounter with painting takes place when, following the paths of the heart, he moved to Italy in Milan in 1985. Anne enrolled in a school of painting with Anthroposophical method and Goethe’s color theory. The encounter with color will determine the orientation of his life: he discovers the moral character, the energy and the secret life, choosing the technique of watercolor that plays on transparencies, and that of oil to express the rich inner life which manifests itself in suggestive images. Of his last paintings (2010-2012) he says: “My painting is a cry: if man does not come out of the dualistic thought that divides him from life, from nature, and from his divine Essence, the world goes to ruin! There is no more time for excuses or stories. This is today’s challenge: it must choose between Being and living, or having and dying. “Pictures witnesses of a debacle, and” dream vision, although at times surprisingly linked to the material to signify the deep uneasiness of an era that no longer finds its place “(O.Karasso). Of a humanity without a soul, almost without hope. In 2013 he combines his passion for art with that for fashion and began to paint clothes designed by her. Anne Delaby www.annedelaby.com

Anne Delaby’s works drag us into an overwhelming whirlwind of feelings and we find ourselves caught between a Dionysiac and an Apollonian state of mind, experimenting all the hues existing in the human soul, which open up like a prism showing its complete polyhedral essence. It is like a fallen God looking for himself in his surrounding world, questioning Nature in order to find answers, re-elaborating it, blending colours and shapes artistically in order to recreate a world, which totally resembles itself. Admiring Anne Delaby’s paintings, we can immediately sense how much they benefit from an extraordinary sensitivity of colour supported by this artist’s education, who was able to reinterpret and transpose Goethe’s and Jodorowsy’s revolutionary chromatic theories on canvas. Hers is art conscious of its own communicative and emotional power: “The inherent transforming power of Art enables Light to penetrate darkness, order to pervade chaos and to find solutions in situations which are apparently hopeless. Art is a connection between the spiritual and the physical worlds, a sort of game between chaos and order, instinctual desire and rational thought, only in Freedom…”
