About

This series on flowers, initiated last year during the confinement, evokes the fragility, the strength, the infinite mystery, and the complexity of nature that enhances the relationship between two constant themes in Sophie Delaporte photographs: woman and color. “I wanted to explore the color in its raw state, which flows, spreads, like a drop of water in painting. My references are very pictorial, inspired by the quality of chroma that we find in the daylight. I’m approaching photography really like a colorist, with subtle nuances of color, shape, and light; I have always sought, through the treatment of color, to get closer to painting” explains the artist. Delaporte invents fluid rhythms that allow a universe of freshness and movement creating a new allegorical language. Her flowers, both almost abstract and very precise, in pale orange, pink, red or purple, are also charged with a powerful sensuality that reminds us of a woman’s grace and beauty. “In 2019, having been invited to Centre Georges Pompidou, in Paris, to talk about this subject during the Dora Maar exhibition, made me realize the importance it has always had in my work” comments Sophie Delaporte.
