Over 200 photographs will allow readers to discover the different phases in Pantillon’s production, each defined by its own specific gesture and process. In fact, throughout her career, Pantillon has conducted countless aesthetic experimentations, passing from realism to abstraction and from abstraction back to realism with disconcerting ease. At the same time, her multifaceted oeuvre is a demonstration of her skill, as she employs a variety of techniques, including watercolor, drawing, Indian ink, oil paint, and engraving.
For her most recent series, Oscillographies, Pantillon abandoned her brush to paint with “elbows and forearms,” rallying all of her physical energy to create intensely vibrant works.
However, it is equally important to observe that this artistic production is characterized by the presence of certain themes that make for overall coherence, such as the study of both wild and urban nature, the observation and the depiction of movement, and the relationship between painting and music.
The volume is complemented by texts by Nathalie Chaix, director of the Musée Jenisch in Vevey; Corinne Currat, assistant curator of the Fondation de l’Hermitage in Lausanne; and by Pierre Fankhauser, a writer and translator, whose poetry collection La visée Anne Pantillon illustrated.
