AMANDINE URRUTY

Née en France en 1982, où elle vit et travaille.

Diplômée d’un DEA en arts plastiques et d’un Master en philosophie de l’art de l’Université de Toulouse, Amandine Urruty est une dessinatrice et une illustratrice. Ses dessins, réalisés au crayon, rappellent le collage par la densité de leur composition. Grâce à la représentation de foules composées d’enfants, d’animaux et de créatures imaginaires, son oeuvre est aussi délicate dans sa réalisation qu’elle est riche de références, convoquant autant la peinture moyenâgeuse que les figurines en plastique des années 80.

Il se dégage de ces masses d’individus, fixant silencieusement le spectateur, une inquiétante étrangeté. Ils semblent figés, comme s’ils prenaient la pose alors qu’à leurs pieds fourmille une multitude de bonshommes, dont la tête ne correspond pas toujours avec le corps, contribuant à l’idée de collage graphique. Les dessins d’Amandine Urruty baignent dans l’incertitude de ce qui s’y déroule. Souvent déguisés ou du moins ornés de masques, ses personnages s’apparentent à des comédiens sur le point d’interpréter une pièce de théâtre. L’artiste, qui vit entre Paris et Toulouse, expose régulièrement en France, dans le reste de l’Europe et aux Etats-Unis.

Born in France in 1982, where she lives and works.

With a postgraduate diploma (DEA) in arts and a Master in Philosophy of Art from the University of Toulouse, Amandine Urruty is an artist and an illustrator. Her drawings, made with pencil, are reminiscent of a collage with the density of their composition. Through the representation of crowds composed of children, animals and imaginary creatures, her work is as delicate in its realization as it is rich in references, referencing as much medieval paintings as the plastic figurines of the 80s.

The uncanny aspect of her work stems from these masses of people, silently staring at the spectator. They seem frozen, as if they were posing. At their feet swarm a multitude of creatures, whose heads do not always match their bodies, contributing to the idea of a graphic collage. The drawings of Amandine Urruty are awash in the uncertainty of what is happening within them. Often disguised or at least wearing masks, her characters are similar to actors about to perform a play. The artist, who lives between Paris and Toulouse, exhibits regularly in France, the rest of Europe and the United States.
