poster for Anne Kagioka Rigoulet “Element”

Ends in 21 days

Anne Kagioka Rigoulet has thus far been engaged in creating sculptural paintings based on images of water-reflections sourced from all over the world, using a unique painting technique that combines classical sgraf to techniques with fabric collage.

During her residency at Bourglinster Castle in Luxembourg, Kagioka was captivated by the boulders dotted about the town and by the surrounding rocky mountains. By painting the rocky landscape, Kagioka strove to express the dynamism and incredible energy of nature, particularly of the earth. And, in order to paint this motif, she experimented with various materials – different types of canvases, fabric, paper, as well as watercolor, acrylic, gouache, sumi ink, and pastels.

As Kagioka continued her research, she discovered that 20 billion years ago, the region had been submerged beneath oceans and that the rocks had been shaped by the force of water. These motifs, in which eons of time and overwhelming energy had accumulated, brought the artist into a new dimension. In this exhibition, the energy of those rocks and the essential elements of nature experienced by the artist will be recreated in the gallery.
