Oil Paintings and Pastel Drawings - Anne-Lise Coste


New York-based French artist Anne-Lise Coste’s drawings and texts have the immediacy of graffiti, and allow her to express subjective moods mixed with political criticism and literary sentences. With a dada-influenced language and intensely lyrical images, her work exudes irony, rebellion and emotion. She creates seemingly decorative compositions that actually offer us a catalogue of contemporary anxieties, where the immediacy of the gesture of drawing combines a strong poetic sense with an element of social critique. This new title published by Nieves (Zurich) presents a new series of vivid works with a child-like spirit.
