Landscape: A Philosophy of Form

(School of Art Room 003)

With a career spanning over three decades, Vicky Colombet’s abstract paintings,

works on paper, prints, fine art photography, and architectural glass projects exist in

conversation with various art historical movements—from traditional Chinese Painting

to Abstract Expressionism. Raised in Paris, Colombet whose mother was of Filipino

descent spent her childhood traveling extensively with her parents across Southeast

Asia and India. Eastern thinking became an important part of Colombet’s perception

of the world.

Vicky Colombet: Paintings from 2007-2018 at The Elkon Gallery

The Elkon Gallery is pleased to present its first solo exhibition of paintings by artist Vicky Colombet.

“A strange weave of space and time: the unique appearance or semblance of distance, no

matter how close it may be. While at rest on a summer’s noon, to trace a range of mountain on

the horizon, or a branch that throws its shadows on the observer, until the moment or the hour

become part of their appearance- this is what it means to breathe the aura of those mountains,

that branch.”– Walter Benjamin

With a career spanning over three decades, Colombet’s abstract paintings, works on paper,

prints, fine art photography, and architectural glass projects exist in conversation with various

art historical movements—from traditional Chinese Painting to Abstract Expressionism. Eleven

paintings ranging in size between 18 x 24 and 72 x72 inches are presented in the gallery.

Colombet experiments with the weights of pigments, their type of granulation, chemical

response, their specific vibrations and steps for grinding. For Colombet, pigments are the

particles and forces in the universe, as she creates parallels of energy between the particles and

brush strokes and physical movement. The use of pure pigment also gives a unique vibration

and emotional resonance. “My paintings are non-objective,” Colombet says, “but they come

from a place where abstraction and nature meet. Not only inspired by nature, in the end result,

but also in every step of the process.”

In the Spring of 2020, “Vicky Colombet: In Dialogue with Claude Monet” will open at the Musée

Marmottan Monet in Paris. Conceived as an homage to Claude Monet, Colombet’s “Water and

Light” series evoke two of the great themes explored by the leading Impressionist.

Colombet was born in Paris, in 1953 and currently lives and works in New York. She has lived

and maintained studios in Paris, the South of France, Barcelona and the Cévennes. She has a

studio at the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts and a studio barn in the Hudson Valley, where

she works on larger scale paintings.

Colombet’s work is included in numerous public and private collections, including the Albright-

Knox Art Gallery, the Musee Marmottan Monet, the Museum of Fine Arts, St Petersburg. She is a

recipient of the Esther and Adolph Gottlieb Foundation Grant (2001) and the Pollock-Krasner

Foundation Grant (2014). A member of the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts in Manhattan since

2004, she became an American citizen in 2013.
