Henriette Zéphir, the french artist who we dedicated a whole exhibition to, back in 2011, is currently displayed at The Collection de l’art brut in Lausanne until April 30th.
This mediumnic artist was discovered by Jean Dubuffet who wrote an entire article on her in the Fascicule de l’art brut n°14 in 1966.
For half a century, French mediumistic artist Henriette Zéphir devoted herself entirely to her “inner guide”, for who she never stopped creating. Her drawings have us captivated in their singular overall composition, but also in the force of their details. Somewhere between pointillism, geometric abstraction and Fauvism, her work reflects an enlightened modernism. Discovered by Jean Dubuffet, as early as 1967 she was presented at the historical art brut exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Today, her work can be seen among the greatest collections of art brut in the world.
