Why and how did I become an illustrator?

BY GAVIN PRYKE
@ VOL 9 ON DEC 02, 2014

How did that sweet innocent young lad with soft blonde hair do such a horrific drawing of his own mother? and why? let me explain...
This caricature of Gavin Pryke's mother is where his love of drawing really started, he quickly learned the power of drawing a shy little boy could easily punish his own mother and make everyone laugh at the same time.  Nice.  He continued to do this throughout his adolescence painting his school teachers naked on the walls of my home town.

Surprising Childhood Universe

BY DELPHINE VAUTE
@ VOL 9 ON DEC 02, 2014

"I am a draftswoman and work on the theme of the childhood. I create a dreamlike world populated with animals in reference to the imaging of the tales populated with anthropomorphic beings. As can be seen, I mix bodies, hybrid.
My images can seem soft and childish in the first reading but there is always a detail which can question or put ill-at-ease. It is the subject that I handle since my studies in School of Fine Arts: the question of the dead body and the obscenity, what cannot or must be shown in our western society.
I use the motive for the body of the child which is not still adolescent. In the border between the childhood and the grown-up world. A child who is not so innocent and who can be cruel. I like working around this theme for my various exhibitions.
The departure of my images are the natural history books which invade my work table. A fascination which follows me for a long time.
My workspace is blocked by books, objects which I collect in my strolls, attic sale and which are for me of the triggers of images.
We often propose me exhibitions where we give carte blanche to me I like inventing a graphic story. Tell stories by the images, so letting to the spectators the leisure invent also their own story.
My last project is a story which began in 2011 with a fanzine grouping images on the theme the childhood, animals and cruelty. This project became this year a book Yvonne, l’Enfant Château. Story of a girl, one summer, living alone with his father. A kind of Alice in Wonderland in more disturbing.
It is interesting to see how the public receives my images. My gesture is decided to shock the spectators by showing in a diverted way or by mentioning topics taboo. Certain people attracted at first by drawings are shocked and can have surprising reactions between the rejection and the advice to make me look by a specialist …
Some times ago, a person pushed me on another technique for an exhibition. The painting brings me a new approach and a method to my work. A liberation of the gesture. I always raise the same subjects. I keepin the final phase a report with the line". Delphine Vaute {in french}

Big Bang Memorial

BY GAËLLE LE GUILLOU
@ VOL 9 ON DEC 02, 2014

Pechakucha was the opportunity for Gaëlle Le Guillou to speak about her deep project: it is an artistic and experimental project at long term in the cemetery of Bouteillerie in Nantes.
This project is supported by the association BIG BANG MEMORIAL. The idea of this association is to take a fresh look at the intimate and common that are cemeteries.

Ceramist Sculptrice, she chooses this material because she can imagine forms and volumes .
She experiments with coloured enamels, textures, by renewing regularly her themes of inspirations.
She draws her inspiration from her childhood, from fashionably, architecture, arts, and nature.
She creates her universe, fanciful and in movement, even if it is about the death.
That is characteristic in her work, and her life. {in french}
