Camille Fontaine practices with great sensitivity drawing and painting. She makes us think of Gehrard Richter for certain relationships between photography and painting. His work is formal, often dealing with profound topics. "His paintings are very frontal, with surfaces of quasi-representation, smooth and unctuous. The contours of objects and the surfaces of representation are rendered abstract, reduced to their essential structures "(Carlos Cadenas)
Her work process is also singular, as the works respond to each other and form a total art form. They are created in a non-hierarchical way, decentered from a purely Western vision a bit as if Japan had brought its touch. We could speak of a "landscape reinvented" artist in that it reproduces the mental, fragmented or memorial landscape as if the arrangement of the paintings was "in itself" a form of landscape. It fits perfectly in the line of the gallery that explores the limits and innovations in painting.
