Haviland, major porcelaine manufacturer is celebrating contemporary artist Arièle Rozowy dans Perception
Words by Laurélia Torno— March 13, 2019
"Perception" by Arièle Rozowy, offers a mix of colors and geometric shapes that perfectly match the white gold plates and services of Haviland porcelain. True signature of the artist, one finds there the graphic purity of the geometric abstraction, the call to the primary forms, and a powerful use of the bright colors. It also recognizes something of the optical and kinetic art, in the games of visual perception that it produces by a game of illusion that the artist expresses by appealing to the eye of the spectator. Each piece becomes sculptural by the simple dimension of a game of shadows.
"I have always been fascinated by porcelain. I collect plates and teapots from all ages. I know the Haviland house that I admire for its ancestral know-how. The idea of being able to democratize my art through the tableware and therefore of everyday life seemed to me to be obvious. Reproducing my sculptures with perspective and shadows has been a real challenge that Haviland has successfully taken up, "says Arièle Rozowy.
The works of Arièle Rozowy, under the generic title of "Elusive Circles", summon at first sight a whole section of the history of art, from geometric abstraction to op art or kinetic art. . We find the graphic purity of geometric abstraction, in the appeal to primary forms - the circle, the cross - and a minimal but powerful use of bright colors. It also recognizes something of the optical and kinetic art, in the games of visual perception that it produces - games more than illusions - by which the eye of the spectator is somehow driving the work. Effects of depths, games of subtle perspectives, elusive shadows, changing auras: Arièle Rozowy thus introduces a form of moving and unstable magic, playing on our perception in a surprising way with regard to the efficient simplicity of the plastic process. More complex than they appear, the "Elusive Circles" multiply the parameters of perception, opening a hypnotic field of possibilities.
