About

Double faced blue enameled earthenware “Fabulous zoomorphic idol, circa 1960-1965, by Guidette Carbonell (1910-2008) With green, red, black colors too. Stone horns. Unique piece, monogrammed.  Re´f : F.Bodet, K.Lacquemant, Guidette Carbonell, Ce´ramiques et tapisseries, Editions Norma, Paris, 2007. Ne´e a` Meudon en 1910, Guidette Carbonell suit les cours d’Andre´ Lhote, Othon Friesz et Roger Bissie`re. De`s ses de´buts en 1935, elle s’oriente vers la ce´ramique qu’elle abandonne a` la fin des anne´es 60 pour des tapisseries compose´es de fragments de tissus colle´s et cousus. Passant de l’abstrait au figuratif, incorporant a` la terre ou au ciment des e´le´ments insolites, verre ou me´tal, au gre´ de sa fantaisie, elle exprime, avec parfois une qualite´ d’inacheve´ tre`s actuelle, un monde inte´rieur troublant, dans lequel on retrouve l’imaginaire de l’enfance. Nourrie de culture orientale, subjugue´e par les repre´sentations romanes ou primitives, Guidette Carbonell de´ploie un bestiaire fabuleux d’une e´trangete´ frappante, ou` l’humain se me^le peu a` peu a` l’animal. Son œuvre qui, des anne´es 30 jusqu’aux anne´es 90, a explore´ les univers de la mythologie, de la musique, de la poe´sie et de la science avec un e´merveillement constant devant la nature, apparai^t aujourd’hui d’une expression tre`s contemporaine.
