Maria Lassnig: Portrait of the Artist

I first came across Mathilde Albouy’s work at her first solo show, Trust Me, at Galerie Derouillon in Paris. We spoke briefly then but met properly right after, at her former residency studio in Villa Belleville.Recent graduate from ENSAD Paris and a current resident at Poush in Paris, Albouy fills her practice with complex paradoxes, both formal and conceptual, as well as with a drive to untangle and counter archetypal fixity through metaphor and poetic force.
