Créature Extraordinaire l New Works by Myrtille Tibayrenc

What's up

Créature Extraordinaire is an ensemble of oils on wood produced in the past 3 months.

For this new body of works, I focused on people around me that I found interesting for various reasons. I always had a concern for gender issues, so several models incarnate this “In between” which I find fascinating. My view on these models is not judgmental, it is a simple observation of humans around me. Most models are my friends, often creative people, artists, fashion designers, photographers.

I enjoy painting especially the youth, their trends of body jewelry, tattoos, and sometimes gender transitions, or just asserted sexual orientations. But it can be simple body parts which resonate with eroticism or mysticism, two sides of the same medal. I like trying to depict the inner world of my models. Something beyond their physique, an attitude, a glimpse perhaps at their spiritual dimension. Above all their uniqueness.

These new works were painted on recycled wood planks, various essences of ancient wood from northern Thailand. Teak, mango, padauk, Etc. I use the bases of ancient natural gesso technique to prepare the wood and try to preserve as much of the vein patterns. The oil work is then very light in order to keep the wood grain visible. It becomes the skin of my models, giving them an organic fee.
