About The Artwork

Strongly inspired from the last verset of Baudelaire's poem on beauty "La Beauté". Je suis belle, ô mortels ! comme un rêve de pierre, Et mon sein, où chacun s'est meurtri tour à tour, Est fait pour inspirer au poète un amour Éternel et muet ainsi que la matière. Je trône dans l'azur comme un sphinx incompris ; J'unis un coeur de neige à la blancheur des cygnes ; Je hais le mouvement qui déplace les lignes, Et jamais je ne pleure et jamais je ne ris. Les poètes, devant mes grandes attitudes, Que j'ai l'air d'emprunter aux plus fiers monuments, Consumeront leurs jours en d'austères études ; Car j'ai, pour fasciner ces dociles amants, De purs miroirs qui font toutes choses plus belles : Mes yeux, mes larges yeux aux clartés éternelles !

Self-taught artist, born in 1982, Laurent Anastay-Ponsolle has developed a practice based on emotion and spontaneity. Fed up with words and concepts, he wanted to express himself in a different way and be in direct touch with materials. Deeply influenced by Schiele, Munch, but also drawing from diverse sources of inspiration like Antique or fantastic mythologies, Mapplethorpe, his work is in continual tension between passion, storytelling and aestheticism. Always guided by his instinct, Laurent Anastay-Ponsolle’s erratic lines search and reveal emotions. This is why he has now a strong link to contemporary dance and explores letting go. A bit less than ten years ago, Laurent felt “ready” to show his work and exhibit. This process -talking to people and making new encounters- was a true revelation. Since then, he took part in many solo and groups shows as well as performances. In 2020 he decided to stop all other professional endeavors to dedicate himself to his art.
