Emeline Depas draws, paints, cuts and recomposes iconographic elements from the pile of images of our time. Their references however are lost or tossed, stuttering and sometimes tending towards abstraction.
Important are the procedures that are likely to make an image, or the delay or the suspension of forms.
Alongside the pop- and humor flavored compositions that characterize many of her collages and paintings, these days the artist engages in a more formal but no less sensitive research of tensions that might generate a relativization of the classical relationship between subject and background.

Benoit Dusart – Brussels, 2013.

Emeline Depas dessine, peint, découpe et recompose des éléments iconographiques tirés de l’amoncellent d’images véhiculées par notre époque.
Les références pourtant se perdent ou basculent, bégayent et tendent parfois vers l’abstraction.
L’enjeu porte sur les procédés susceptibles de faire image, l’atermoiement des formes ou leur suspension.
Parallèlement aux compositions aux accents pop et riants qui caractérisent nombre de ses collages et tableaux, l’artiste s’engage aujourd’hui dans une recherche plus formelle, mais non moins sensible, sur les tensions que peut générer la relativisation du rapport classique entre sujet et fond.

Benoit Dusart – Bruxelles, 2013
