PACMAN AND THE GIRLS

Armed with inspiration derived from French movie posters and a mission to denounce the paradox between artificial society and the other global reality, French artist Delphine De Lorme presents “Pacman and the Girls” as it bespeaks of the artist’s critical judgment of the society. This she articulates through her large canvases, vivid colrs, poster like images and complex compositions.

The exhibit runs from 18 March to 28 March 2011 at NOVA Gallery, Warehouse 12A, La Fuerza Compound, 2241 Don Chino Roces Ave., Makati City.

Delphine De Lorme
Artist Statement

Contrast is a recurring theme in Delphine de Lorme’s work. She shows interest in the paradox of life, and in striving to express that life is both magical and tragic, recklessly torn bits of paper do the trick, adding unfair and violent elements to her stylish and seductive paintings.

She criticizes glitterati society, Hollywood’s show-off tendencies and its artifices, and denounces the paradox between artificial society and this other global reality that surrounds us, dominated by power, injustice and violence.

By representing the femme fatale as an ingenuous and provocative seductress who is armed to the teeth, her paintings confront viewers with this paradox.

This is seen not only in the subjects of her paintings, but also in her technique.

Her large canvases, crisscrossed with bold strokes of shrill, vivid color, her sharp, nervous brushstrokes in which borders fade away, marked by strong mixed-media treatment, provide something of a visual shock that interrogates viewers on the nature of reality.

She works from ads, provocative titles, comics, and characters, layering vintage French cinema posters with ripped edges. Her deconstructive work diverts the matter from its initial meaning by reinterpreting it and suggesting other narratives – a critical approach intended to arouse awareness.

In 2010 she decided to honor Manny Pacquiao and did a series of ten paintings representing his major fight and his ten world titles.
