Simone Pheulpin uses the plainest of materials : strips of unbleached calico, a traditional raw cotton from the Vosges. Modified in nature and structure, this fabric becomes unrecognizable, shaped into dense and regular accumulation of folds held togeter from within only by a multitude of pins, to the exclusion of any other process.
The strangeness of the works thus obtained is disturbing: it is stone that we believe we see. The works of Simone Pheulpin are kept at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris, at the Art Institute in Chicago and at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Asking the novelist Christophe Pradeau to write about the art of Simone Pheulpin was all the more legitimate as his text, both precise and very poetic, restores the originality of the artist's creation.
