Présentation de mon amie Artiste Kitty Holley

Kitty Holley,

Meeting an artist / video by Anne Burgeot - march 2001, 

“Kitty Holley lives and works in Paris. She has anchored herself in the art world by stroke of a dynamic brush and use of tonic colors. From lines to curves, from spirals to vertigos, her inspiration comes from her contradictions. Between chaos and harmony, with organization yet in full liberty, she expresses the impulse of her life.
KH. “It erupts in a way  thatis both spontaneous and controlled. There is an evident progressive organization of space. One line calls another. There is a sort of mental organization. I believe that one must trust one’s intuition. All of my work concerning the subconscious and intuition is characteristic of what I do. There is this force within us that is extraordinary. It makes me think about the movement of Tai Chi, where there are movement that leaves in one sense and return in another. There is a kind of balance. It flows from a source, much like life.
When man needed to communicate with the gods, they danced and played music. It was a way for them to enter a second state of being. There is no efficiency in dance; there is a pleasure, an excitement which trascend’s the state of normality.
I began by taking classes of  Bharatha Nathyam, a type of  Indian Dance. I went to Japan, stayed in Zen monasteries I experienced “the body limit”, meaning the body in meditation.”
“Is dancing a way to fill a void? To silence a scream? It’s the fast stars in slow motion”
Rainer Maria Rilke
KH. “There is me  and the vertigo. But the vertigo is a part of me. It’s an awareness of this void. The entires series about the vertigo is a blank page. Actually, what is the blank page? It is equally the blank page of the writer, the blank canvas of the painter, the blank score of the composer. It si the kind of void inside the creator, the moment when he launches himself into the work, to leave his personnal mark.”
Kitty Holley comes from a family rich in strong  personalities. From her  father’s side, her grandmother, Germaine Holley, was a great astrologer. Her father Michel Holley, managed one of largest architecture firms in Paris from the 50s to the 90S. Renowned architect, he contribued to the urban rebuilding of Paris after the World War. It’s from the maternal side that we find a stronger artistic tradition. Emma Trasenster, her grandmother, was a dedicated pianist, and her mother Francine Holley, is a painter whose masters are Fernand Leger and Jean Dewasne
KH. “ When  I was  a child, I was lucky enough to meet exceptionnal artists keeping company in the studio I  lived: Cesar, Robert Jacobsen, Soto, Brassai, Dewasne and Pillet.
A fouth generation of women artist is being born with Alice Kitty’daughter. After having studied at Fine Arts, she devoted herself to film-making; All three of Kitty’children benefit from the family heritage. Alexandre is an architect an Nicolas a music composer.
KH. “For the moment, I’m reading a lot of works about the sound and the visual, The relationship between music and painting. In music, I’m intrigued by John Cage an in choreography by Merce Cunningham, with whom I worked in New York in 98.
Nicolas de Stael and Pollock are artists which fascinate me. They often have tragic destinies. I think they approach deep truths
Her astrologer grandmother  Germaine Holley would often said: “ The double spiral represents the descent of the sky upon the earth, and the rise of being toward the sky, as a perpetual movement that exists in each of us.”
From sky to earth, from interior to exterior, Kitty Holley opens the doors of a sensitive setting in imagination as well as in reality.
Kitty Holley is leaving her mark in different media: on paper, on canvas, on walls, on plates, on carpet and even on stage. Vincent Guzman, a contemporary painter remarked “ This calm vivacity is an allegory of love living.”

Dear Bruce,
Master of Creativity,
Happy Birthday today, tomorrow and every moment...
As promissed, here what I learned from you and applying every moment:
 Text to follow later....
Chuuuuuuuut listen to the dialog:

Dialog of transparency, Art Photo: Shahrzad Ghaffari, FEB.2012

Tell me drop how did you get here?
You tell me drop how you did get here?

'I ignor how I got here'
'I ignor how I got here, too!

It is freezing, do you feel cold?
It is freezing, what about you, do you feel cold?

I am confused, did you ask if I was cold?
I am also confused, did you ask if I was cold?

Well, it seems that you are frozen!
Well,  it seems that you are also frozen!

Who cares, frozen or hot, I am water!,
Who cares, frozen or hot, I am water, too!

Let's wait until sun shines and I will drop down,
Let's wait until sun shines and I will drop down, 

You repeat what I say, tell me who are you?
I suppose I am You, or You are Me!

Art has its own Nature, is like water, can split, can steam, can freeze, lives and gives life...becomes clouds, rain, Snow flakes, Ice, melts...creates rainbows under the first contact with the Sun, ...
and the Ultimate Necessity for Life...
Amazing, what is the Humain without Art !?!

About Me

J'ai toujours été ravie de mon prénom Shahrzad شهرزاد qui avait été choisi par ma chère mére, un être exceptionnel que j'appelle madar en persan. Quand j'ai appris que Shahrzad voulait dire:'Caractère Libre', j'ai sourri...quand j'ai lu l'histoire de Shahrzad, j'ai encore, quand j'ai appris que Shahrzad était dans la Perse antique la déesse de l'apprentissage (ou quelque chose similaire,à confirmer), j'ai me suis demandée comment ma mère savait que ce prénom allait tellement bien à sa fille Shahrzad!
