Black star lights Jean-Paul Marcheschi at Maison Vaincourt Music
The union of flame and leather, earth and light ... It is from the depths of the universe, where fire emerges, a natural and sacred element of life, surfaces.
If contemporary painters sometimes forget that they have been a “Homo Pictor” for 35,000 years, Jean-Paul Marcheschi awakens this memory inscribed in the entire history of humanity. Connecting the past to the contemporary is the journey that this artist offers us with a particular technique straight out of prehistoric caves: those of the drawing executed with carbon black. Like the phoenix, it is reborn from its ashes facing the race of time, it immortalizes between the paths of light a kind of calligraphic memory ...
In the light of its "brush of fire" it gives birth to stellar works and darkly bright ... A solar tear emerges from the dark, using soot, smoke or even candle wax. Playing on the material, the contrasts of light, his work flies through time and space. Accompanied by the leather worked by the craftsman Thibaut Favre de la Paillerie who shapes it in his Atelier Elisabeth Schmitt at the bend of the rue de la Soudière in Paris, creates an alchemy between the earthly fire of the artist Jean-Paul Marcheschi and birth a second life in leather goods.
The artist's gesture and that of the leatherworker are extracted from the same knowledge, that of the ancestral man. The art of painting depicting the human body is as old as the work done by humans to dress themselves. These two artisans of human gesture are both brought together for the occasion of a joint exhibition at the contemporary luminous cave that is the Maison Vaincourt.
This house located in the heart of the fashion capital is a place of culture and fashion for these leather accessories which strictly respect the heritage of French know-how. Stamped "made in France", handbags and belts play on this tradition. The customer goes to this space to make an accessory according to his desires on already established bases. This is how the work of the craftsman sublimates that of the artist of fire.
The Vaincourt house innovates and transmits to us the passions of this painter and this craftsman who play with the same artistic gesture for the exhibition.
The Vaincourt house offers belts to be worn as haute couture jewelry, in turn acting as a natural second skin for the wearer. This luxury player works on comfort and discretion, which cannot be seen but lived. It's an inner adventure, such is the French definition of luxury leather goods. For our greatest happiness this house plays with the notions of desire and requirement.
Thus the needle, the brush, the scissors, the compass, the wire cutter, the iron and the blade of Thibaut compete with the flame, the soot or the wax at Jean-Paul Marcheschi. They both work on a raw material to sublimate it. The union of flame and leather, earth and light magnifies Maison Vaincourt for our greatest pleasure.
Quatre couleurs Association presents the Robert Kerr house at the Séguier salon
As part of the defense of know-how and craftsmanship, the 4 Couleurs association wished to accompany the creator Thomas Drischel of Maison Robert Kerr as well as the hair sculptor Mathieu Séguier in order to present the collections of accessories for men inspired by archives of Thomas' grandfather who was a master tailor in London. An evening surrounded by artisans and artists!
Quatre couleurs association presents
Portraits of Shoes
After a 100% digital brand launch in early 2017, Maison Chamberlan is now opening its first Parisian Creative Space. This space, dedicated to the creation of Chamberlan shoes, is also intended to be a living space, open to Made in France artisans and artists who will regularly come to animate the space to present their creations in the form of a Pop Up Store and ephemeral exhibitions.
It was only natural that Chamberlan called on the Association 4 Couleurs, an association of which it has been a part since its creation, to organize its first Vernissage on the occasion of its inauguration. 7 talented painters thus lent themselves to the game to offer us their vision of the Chamberlan House and to exhibit around twenty paintings representing the House's shoes.
“In order to transcend the heart of the craft trade of the bespoke shoemaker, the Quatre Couleurs association wanted to surround the Chamberlan house with painters, all women, in order to produce not portraits of faces but portraits of shoes! The painters had all participated in the exhibition "14 looks in freedom" in 2016 on the occasion of the day of the woman after the attacks of 2015. These painters are mostly from the School of Printmaking, a worthy heir to the French Impressionist school. The transversality between art and craftsmanship is the essential link to enhance the work of craftsmen.
Teaser Masks Grillon
MASKS: REAL OR ABSTRACT IDENTITY?
“Assimilating and integrating the origin of the different structures of consciousness was only a logical consequence of this research on the identity of a physical and universal language.” Wolfram Mehring Built as a path, the spectator lives a playful experience with masks. The idea is to experience a sensation of surprises with the masks, an experience of confrontation, of astonishment, of emotions which allows the viewer / visitor to wonder, to discover and to learn. A labyrinth course allows the discovery of the different masks: everything is black and when the viewer approaches, the mask reveals itself and lights up, creating the effect of surprise. At the start of the tour is a video installation that runs in a loop (mixing dancing masks, biography of Grillon, and archive images of actors from the Mandrake troupe wearing masks.). The first exhibition will be a pilot of the mask box that we would like to create (partnership with the Loo & Lou gallery) The container would be a container inside which the exhibition would be located.
This giant "box" of masks could be transported from one end of the planet to the other: a black box in which the exhibition would travel on the backs of boats, trailers or trucks. Artistic direction: Alexandre Mehring Exhibition curator: Delphine Garnier Original Music: Nicolas Bikielo The idea of this exhibition is that it becomes itinerant in order to highlight the work of Grillon masks but also to sensitize visitors to a psycho reflection sociological of our society.
The change towards a masked virtual world, a globalized land where cultural identity evolves behind masks imposed by a real and virtual system, a bit like a game of actors, like a game of masks!
In a time of globalization when we are wondering about cultural identity, the mask game brings real reflection on the search for the identity of man beyond different cultures and structures of consciousness. The "mask box" exhibition could also be exhibited in various symbolic places of contemporary art and theater.
The 4 Couleurs association wishes to support this exhibition in its cultural action since it defends values which are dear to it: those of the transversality of the arts (theater masks which are also sculptures, paintings), cultural identity , relationship to the body, theatricality, uniqueness. Alexandre Mehring, Grillon’s son, would like to donate his masks to a museum once the “mask box” experience is over. Delphine Garnier President of the Association 4 Couleurs and curator of the exhibition
First edition of the Black & White Parade

Behind the Bastille, this two-color and graphic exhibition is held in an exceptional setting, a giant boat-like workshop designed by Mallet-Stevens. Resin, haute-couture, leather goods, drawing, photography, the event resonates like an ultra-joyful ode dedicated to painting, fashion and French craftsmanship, and reveals real talents, in tune with their zeitgeist.

A Christmas market unlike any other, where trees are works of art designed by artists, and where you can treat yourself to shagreen, a magic painting, Japanese papers, a tailor-made perfume ... . The object must have r a soul and born from the meeting of concept, matter and the hand of man.
When you have the know-how, making it known can take time. But the true artist is the one who possesses this ingenious art of painting the word and speaking to the eyes. By the lines and figures drawn, it gives color and body to our thoughts. Handyman, jack-of-all-trades women are at the helm, in this unique place, and reiterate their passion for the period of the 1920s, which saw the birth of fruitful friendships uniting Chanel, Cocteau, Picasso, Satie and Diaghilev. It just goes to show that black and white has never been so chic and inspiring, and it remains resolutely a game of checkers. www.quatre-couleurs.com
