Louise Sartor (Crèvecœur gallery in Paris)
Nominated for the 2016 Ricard Foundation Prize, and represented by the Crèvecœur Gallery at the Paris Internationale fair in October, Louise Sartor (born in 1988) has garnered a great deal of attention recently with her small scale paintings on scraps of paper casually pinned to walls. Hers are stolen images of women on the move, often framed in such a way that we never actually get to see the whole body. It’s a paradoxical manner of working, both sensitive and odd, the fragility of the (small sized) material and delicacy of the colours contrast with the violence of the torn paper… The Crèvecœur Gallery will hosting a solo show of this Beaux-arts and Arts décoratifs graduate in 2017.
Jacqueline de Jong (Chateau Shatto in Los Angeles)
This Dutch painter born in 1939 in Amsterdam into a family of art collectors was a fully-fledged member of the International Situationist movement at the tender age of 20. What followed was a prolific career as a painter whose works, always provocative, were shown again recently at the Paris Internationale fair. She is represented by Chateau Shatto in Los Angeles where she showed her series Pommes de Jong, gold jewellery made from dried potatoes !
