ART LAC

Laurence Causse-Parsley

English

“Color possesses me. I don’t have to pursue it. It will possess me always, I know it. That is the meaning of this happy hour: Color and I are one. I am a painter Paul Klee (1879–1940), The Diaries of Paul Klee 1898-1918, entry for April 16, 1914 (1957, trans. 1965).

The day I decided to dedicate my time to painting, I found my place in the world. I was 37. I feel lucky each time I walk to my studio. Or when a thought which may become a  painting comes to my mind. It is not a grand declaration; it is not a big place. It is simply a way of moving from one day to the next on my own terms.

I walk, I travel, I am struck by a small corner of a wall layered with flaking paints and ripped posters, or by a majestic landscape viewed from a plane. I paint. I walk, I travel, I meet people sleeping in a shady corner or a crowd of women. I paint. My painting is about colours and energy.

I walk, I travel, I pick up a stone or a piece of reclaimed wood on a beach. I try to sculpt.

Since 2010, I have been working out of Make Space Studios in London’s East End and am part of the Espacio group that runs the Espacio gallery on London’s Bethnal Green Road.

London is the most recent stopover on my travels. From 2000 to 2010, I lived in Asia with my family. Mumbai’s Hacienda gallery in the Khala Godha district welcomed my first solo exhibition in 2003. During a one-year stay in Taïpei, Taïwan, I trained to become a volunteer guide at its National Palace Museum. There I discovered art of the Tang and Song dynasties and it remains a constant source of inspiration.

Then followed six years in Thaïland where I joined Bangkok’s art community, working with numerous galleries, while sharing my passion through painting workshops for children and adults. Before moving back to Europe, I was given the opportunity to decorate a Karen chapel in the Northern village of Maewe and  my Paths series of paintings was shown at The New York Affordable Art Fair by Bangkok’s La Lanta gallery.

My decade in Asia was a radical change from my early years rooted in the South of France. I was brought up in Nice, in a family of architects and art lovers and spent the first 18 years of my life in the beautiful landscapes of the Mediterranean, between Nice, Provence and Montpellier.  I studied political science, and in parallel followed various fine arts classes. When I returned to France from England with an MA in Political Sciences from Nottingham University, I worked in marketing while discovering acrylic painting in Yves Desvaux Veeska’s studio www.peindre-en-liberte.com. The move to India in 2000 gave me the opportunity to dedicate myself full time to painting.

Thanks to Desvaux-Veeska and other artists along the way (such as Pr Vivek Daas, an enamel artist in Mumbai, or William Mazzari and Patricia Tardy with whom I started to learn portrait oil painting, Audrey Welsh artist , Christèle Guérard sculptor, Chéneau du Siam artist and traveller…), I have learned a lot and kept my mind open to new sources of inspiration and new media of expression.

« La couleur me possède. Je n’ai plus besoin de la rechercher. Elle me possède à jamais, je le sais. Voici ce que signifie ce moment heureux : moi et la couleur, nous ne formons qu’un. Je suis peintre. » Paul Klee (1879–1940), The Diaries of Paul Klee 1898-1918, entry for April 16, 1914 (1957, trans. 1965).

Le jour où j’ai décidé de me consacrer à plein temps à la peinture, ce jour là, j’ai eu le sentiment d’avoir trouvé ma place dans le monde. J’avais 37 ans. Je me dis que j’ai de la chance chaque fois que je me rends à mon atelier ou quand une pensée me vient, dont je sais qu’elle est une promesse de peinture. Ce n’est pas une grande déclaration, ce n’est pas une  place glorieuse. C’est juste ma manière d’avancer d’un jour à l’autre.

Je marche.  Je voyage.  Un pan de mur avec des traces de couches de peinture écaillées et de posters arrachés, ou un paysage vu d’avion…Je peins. Je marche. Je voyage. Je rencontre des gens qui dorment dans des coins ombragés ou des groupes de femmes gracieuses. Je peins. Ma peinture parle de couleurs, d’énergie, de rencontres, d’épiphanies.

Je marche.  Je voyage. Je ramasse un morceau de bois flotté sur la plage ou une pierre sur la falaise. J’essaie de sculpter.

Depuis 2011, j’ai établi mon atelier à Make Spaces Studios dans l’ Est londonien, vibrant et artistique. Je fais aussi partie du groupement d’artistes Espacio qui anime la galerie Espacio sur Bethnal Green road à Londres.

Londres est l’étape la plus récente dans mes voyages. De 2000 à 2010, j’ai vécu en Asie avec ma famille. Mumbai et la galerie Hacienda dans le quartier de Kala Ghoda ont accueilli ma première exposition solo. Après Bombay, Taiwan. Je découvre la richesse des arts chinois en devenant guide volontaire au National Palace Museum de Taipei. Depuis, l’esthétique des dynasties Tang et Song est restée une source d’inspiration.

2004-2010: Bangkok. Ces 6 années passées en Thaïlande m’ont permis de m’intégrer dans la communauté artistique de Bangkok, de travailler avec de nombreuses galeries et de participer à des expositions de groupe, tout en partageant mon envie de peindre en animant des ateliers pour enfants et adultes.

Mon chemin artistique en Asie a culminé en 2010 avec la  décoration de la chapelle karen de Maewe dans le nord de la Thaïlande, et ma participation à l’Affordable Art Fair de New-York représentée par La Lanta Gallery.

Cette décennie voyageuse a été un changement radical par rapport à une enfance et une adolescence fermement ancrées dans le sud de la France. J’ai grandi à Nice, dans une famille d’architectes et d’amoureux de l’art et j’ai passé les 18 premières années de ma vie sur les bords de la Méditerranée, entre Nice, la Provence et Montpellier. J’ai étudié les sciences politiques tout en suivant différents cours d’arts plastiques. En rentrant d’Angleterre avec un Master of Arts de sciences politiques de l’université de Nottingham, j’ai commencé à travailler dans le marketing  tout en découvrant la peinture acrylique dans l’atelier du peintre Yves Desvaux-Veeska www.peindre-en- liberte.com. Le départ en Inde m’a donné l’opportunité de me consacrer à la peinture .

Grâce à Desvaux-Veeska et à d’autres artistes rencontrés en chemin ( tel le Pr Vivek Das à Mumbai, artiste en émaux, ou Patricia Tardy et William Mazzari à Bangkok avec qui j’ai commencé à travailler sur le portrait à l’huile, Audrey Welsh peintre, Christèle Gérard sculpteur, Chéneau du Siam peintre voyageur…) j’ai beaucoup appris et gardé l’esprit ouvert à de nouvelles sources d’inspiration et à de nouveaux moyens d’expression.

UNCERTAIN TERRITORY

 

An exhibition of work by three artists exploring those moments and places in which we escape the everyday

 

HELEN CAMPBELL

LAURENCE CAUSSE-PARSLEY

ALISON LUMB

 

These three artists share an interest in how from time to time, we step outside the known, safe and familiar, into liminal states and places.   Daily life is held in suspension: the terrain is unfamiliar, and the future is thrown into doubt, if only for a moment.

The exhibition will include painting, printmaking and mixed media.

Past Exhibitions

THREADS Edinburgh with the Artists Pool
13/03/2018
Dundas Street Gallery, 6 Dundas street, Edinburgh

Part of The Women’s History Month 2018

Our lives as women contain many threads. Some run through time, connecting us to our past selves and pointing a way towards the future. Others are the threads that weave us together with our family and friends. And there are also the threads of memory, of those we have loved from near and from far, and of those we have lost.

In Women’s History Month, the Threads exhibition reaches out beyond the boundaries of national borders, language, culture and belief, inviting participants to choose a thread from the wide tapestry of their lives and gently unravel it to release its meaning, wisdom and secrets.

HUMAN NATURE, Espacio Gallery
03/10/2016
Espacio Gallery, 159 Bethnal Green Road, Shoreditch, London E2

Human Nature. Two simple words that offer a word of interpretation.

When we speak of Human Nature do we mean the inner psyche that both determines our uniqueness and links us to others? Or do we use them in a wider sense to address our interaction with the natural world and our impact on the environment both destructive and constructive?

The artists in this show look at the natural world and how it affects and shapes our humanity, our relationships in our families and in wider society. In this symbiotic relationship every action by Nature or Humanity leads to a change in the other.

Focus LDN presents ‘The Art of Regeneration’

 

In response to the changing urban landscape surrounding an artists’ community in Waterloo, Focus LDN has brought together artists of all nationalities to collaborate on a group show, about the connection between urban regeneration and culture. Focus LDN specialises in interdisciplinary arts events around the capital, with a particular interest in bringing the arts and industry together.

 

Representing the diversity and multiculturalism of London’s art scene ‘The Art of Regeneration’ explores questions of cultural regeneration, and how the arts are utilising this visual language to inspire their practise.

 

Lower Marsh in Waterloo has been allocated funds for a range of new initiatives, making the quarter a Portas Pilot area as part of the London Regeneration Project. The Mayor’s investment is supporting the return of Lower Marsh’s street market by working with local businesses, schools, colleges and arts organisations. The Art of Regeneration will further contribute to the art community by working with the Menier Gallery in Southwark.

 

The Menier Gallery is situated within the historic Menier Chocolate Factory, located in the heart of one of London’s artistic hubs. The gallery is a two minute walk from Borough Market and five minutes from Tate Modern. Menier Gallery is managed by Paintings in Hospitals, a registered charity that lends contemporary works of art to NHS hospitals. All income generated from the gallery supports the charity’s work.

 

The Art of Regeneration presents an anthology of images synonymous with London’s urban identity, encompassing a variety of techniques from oils and etchings to prints and charcoal. Artists include Patrick Blower who is exhibiting in the Lynne Painter – Stainers award this year, Laurence Causse-Parsley finalist of EWAAC 2015 Open Exhibition and resident at The AIR Kyoto 2016, Mark Mulholland who exhibited in the BP Portrait awards 2014, and Thomas Cox who featured in Parallax Art Fair, Chelsea plus twelveothers. This will be a significant group show for London’s 2016 calendar.

 

The Art of Regeneration opens to the public from Tuesday 26th to Saturday 30th April 2016 11am-6pm.

The private view will take place 6pm – 8.30pm Tuesday 26th April.

Place and Space
15/09/2015
Espacio Gallery, 159 Bethnall Green road, London

The recent film about J.M.W.Turner has introduced more people to the breadth of expression that can be achieved in the exploration of landscape painting.

‘Place & Space’, the new show at the Espacio Gallery carries that conversation forward by displaying a range of work by contemporary artists who make a statement about their place in the modern world with its ever expanding complex infrastructure.

‘Place’ represents the formal ideas of landscape in real or imagined locations. Our physical presence is somewhere that can be clearly defined. It may be a place we reside, work or visit. In this age of GPS positioning, our ‘place’ can be digitised and our residences ‘post coded’ and Googled. Our minds however, can be in places where our body is not; in this way place can be exotic or transcendent.

‘Space’ may represent the miniscule detail or the enormity of the infinite. Work in this show presents concepts of distance and transcendence; the relationship of objects within a described space, land reflecting sky, transition of sea and shore, arrangement of buildings in man-made space, or simply the relationship between two or more objects on a table.

‘Place & Space’ explores a contemporary view of landscape evoking the world of abstraction through paintings, prints, and photographs. Cary Whitworth illustrates her exploration of ‘inner landscapes’ derived from memories of place and time. Lee-Ann uses her photographs to explore the cartography of the human body and common elements found in the known environment to convey their own unique sense of landscape.

Paintings by Clive Patterson, Annie Hudson, Helen Campbell, Laura Keely, Helen Ryan, & Justine Lois Thorpe possess identifiable features of landscape, but may also introduce ambiguity, combining motifs that take the viewer on an interpretive journey. Anthea Eames conveys a haunting presence of Australia’s ancient past by utilising indigenous earth pigments and patterns, and Laurence Causse-Parsley & juli Jana reveal their fascination with space through dynamic use of colour and form. Rounding out the exhibition Helen Benson’s intriguing screen prints describe the complex structure and pattern of buildings vis a vis related constructed objects.

This exhibition aims to engage the visitor in a conversation about how we envisage landscape and our environment.

The Portrait Show
14/04/2015
Espacio Gallery, 159 Bethnal Green Road, London

A classic subject is given a contemporary twist as twelve established artists give their interpretation of the word ‘Portrait’. At times intimate and unexpected, the works capture the unplanned moment; a fleeting thought that changes the expression, the vulnerability of the sleeping figure, abstractions that hint at flesh and sensuallity.

The Vaults, Leake street, London

Rachel Kay, creative director of Creation Box, london, has created a choreography and a film inspired both by her own family history and Laurence Causse parsley (LAC) painting Shimmering II.

Thursday 3rd April – Tuesday 8th April 2014 Private View Thursday 3rd 6 – 10pm 159 Bethnal Green Road, London, E2 7DG

Espacio Gallery has the pleasure of inviting you to the Private View of our second Annual Portrait Show; an exhibition that showcases exciting new work by emerging and established artists, providing a fresh look into both traditional and contemporary portraiture. This diverse group of visual artists have come together from varied backgrounds and experiences to offer an exciting showcase of their current work.

This collection of works provides new references to our environment, in paint, sculpture, drawings and mixed media.

Laurence Causse-Parsley is exhibiting for the first time, inspired by her ten-year stay in Asia, these oil-painted figurative portraits make a digression in the usually abstract and vividly coloured work of the London based artist LAC. LAC’s portraits evoke the slumber of a tropical afternoon, the shade and the heat and sometimes catches the funny side of an improbable pose. causseparsley@mac.com

Art Breathes Life Into Waterloo’s Hidden Spaces

PREVIEW THURSDAY 6 JUNE 6 TO 9 PM

8 – 9 June

Make Space Studios, formerly a disused site next to Waterloo, this colourful site is now the creative home of more than 70 artists, who will be throwing open their doors to the public for a weekend of art, music, film and food.

These events provide an opportunity for Londoners and visitors to step out of Southbank crowds and move just south of the gaze of the London eye into the old world made new by creative types; a place where the discerning art appreciator can get in early, before all the works cross the river to the Tate.
