Lucie Duban: Dreams and Escape

Through colour and form the artist creates a universe of Onirism. Each title acts as the beginning to a story, inviting the viewer to escape from reality and to remember the child in each of us. Evocative of multiple readings, sensations and feelings the subjective interpretation of her art is paramount to Duban.  A surreal, […]
