Caroline Rennequin Flower Painting Medium 22" x 30"
Painting with gouache paint on India paper floating in a handmade (by Caroline Rennequin) high gloss natural white frame.
CAROLINE RENNEQUIN, born in 1970, lives and works in Paris.
As a graduate of the École Estienne in 1988, of Duperré in 1990, and of the Decorative Arts in 1993 (all prestigious French Art programs), Caroline Rennequin’s main pastime is as a "set designer" for fashion and luxury brands. She has been the artistic director of the Jérôme Dreyfuss brand since 2007. Before that she worked for Isabel Marant and Annick Goutal. She creates all the decorations for the designer's windows and boutiques including sculptures, furniture, paintings and wall drawings.
At the same time, she leads a multidisciplinary personal artistic practice that is inspired by the intimate and the feminine, as well as, the relation between crafts, popular culture, non western art and contemporary art. These themes are expressed in her latest series of 301 gouaches on paper produced in 2020 and entitled, “That’s All Folks!”. They all contain the universal subject of the flower, but through Caroline's creativity and imagination, each one communicates much more than the naked eye can see.
Caroline has exhibited on several occasions:
2021 A permanent exhibition at Galeria Tambien, Ibiza
2020-Present A dedicated exhibition at Galerie Jean Fournier, Paris
2018-2019 A collective exhibition called, “Le Dessin sous tous ses forme” at the Biennale de Paname, Paris
2016 Galerie Danysz, Paris
2014 Galerie Deyrolle, Paris
2010 Museum of Decorative Arts as part of the group exhibition Circuit Ceramics, Paris
