You are invited to come and discover the art form known as 'collages'. This type of collage took 30 years to develop and this exhibition from France will only be in Japan for one week.
Lucienne Vigor developed her 'VISAGES' in an abstract vein which is kin to a 'Nouveau Cubisme'. The difference is that all the human values have been maintained.
This art _expression is very precise in that it teaches you the importance of the eyes and mouth in the forming of the more than 10,000 expressions possible with the human face.
The material that the artist has chosen for the 'Visages' is decorative painted paper that then becomes a tapestry work. This 'Collage' then comes alive and can express visual emotions. The decorative paper is chosen by Lucienne Vigor herself and then applied to the board in such a way that it best responds to the visual traits she is trying to achieve. Therefore, the precision of the design becomes of great importance. It only takes a millimeter or two in the placement of each piece of decorative paper or its shape to translate the _expression from a serene to a concerned look, from downhearted to laughing or any other of the myriad of possible expressions.
You can only get the picture by seeing these works of art for yourself. Come and see the 'Visages de Lucienne Vigor' at the 1998 Exposition d'art de Lucienne Vigor et d'autres Amis' at the Kozawa Art Gallery in Hitachi Ota City, Nishi 2 Cho 2194 (about a 10 minute walk north of the Hitachi Ota train station).
