Sara Haraigue's graphic universe
Sara Haraigue only needs a few pieces of natural debris to paint a world made up of fragments, textures and colours that float in abstract yet harmonious graphics.Sara Haraigue works with often ignored natural elements, left on the roadside, or on the bank of a pond. The fur shed by a moulting animal, bird feathers, shards of rock and glass.
All bathed in a suspended, impalpable atmosphere that the young Parisian artist can transform into graphic and printing wefts which have already appeared on the cover of a Sigur Rós album and on magazines such as Dedicate Magazine.
A fresh new graduate from the Ecole des Gobelins in Paris, Sara Haraigue enters the world of contemporary graphics with a fresh look, a mix of figuration and abstraction, geometry and decoration, without however falling into step with overworked trends defined by the cultural industries.
