The French artist Soumisha Dauthel’s works are the fruits of encounters of her pictorial expression and research into the form of the painting. The artist has developed a process that allows her to construct her paintings in a dissociated way. She assembles her paintings from different periods, brings them together, and connects the “Temporalities and territories of the act of painting” to offer unexpected links. She privileges the practice of painting while questioning its components. This treatment of painting corresponds to her personal mythology of the meeting of cultures. With her assemblages, she finds a new approach to painting which is her own. Her work titled ‘Better Days’ (2020) is being shown as part of the ongoing Luxembourg Art Week where she is represented by the Valerius Gallery, Paris.
