Colette Leinman's artistic approach consists to work on different parallel series that cover themes such as "Blues", "N'Hommades", "Portraits", etc.

In the research of her own unique way, she is looking for increased intensity in an effort to practice art as an ethic which, according to Adorno, had lost its obviousness.

The bodies or portraits seems suspended, sometimes dancing, sometimes as ghostly beings, disturbing what is representable.

Between survival and reminiscence, trauma and creation, animated and hunanimated, human and dehumaned, Colette leads us to questions and concerns about our own lives in a more and more chaotic world.

Her work allows primitives shapes as utopic worlds to be represented together so a new kind of mobility is given to melancholy and desire.

She tunes up the value, through the colours she picks, black and white, graphite, blue-grey, the in-between the Cézanian light, on one hand, the mallarméan visual background, on the other hand. « Greyness… moves well between air and stone », writes Colette

This part devoted to Art is inspired by Michel Wokowicz’s article « Nomads – Nomades », in the catalogue/ livre d’artiste « Le Cycle des N’Hommades », ed. Le Scribe- L’Harmattan, Paris, 2012.

Series

Blues

The serial of blue monochromes questions the concept of 'the immaterial' and the relations between spirit and sensations.

Series

n'Hommades

Throught nomadic figures, the series "n'Hommades" both captures the essence of the Civilization's first steps and of our .transitory Human Condition.

Series

On the Net... Or Café Botz

Using Graffiti painted with markers on large-scale industrial plastic nets, Colette exhibits mental maps emerging from socio-cultural representations.

Series

Portraits

The portrait is both the mark of the individual identity and the mask that hides it. Therefore the artist is looking for the inner horizon of faces.

Series

Drawings

Colette represents feminine and masculine vulnerabilities caught in movement but with their obsessive and powerful human omnipresence.
