This website is a place of initiation, an invitation to discover the Art of Life.

Its name pays tribute to the dragonfly, our universal emblem, evocative of the perpetual motion of Life. Indeed, Nature lies at the Centre of everything and brings us back to our own Centre.

Throughout my projects, I have always aspired to create and to convey this Art of Life. I wished to break with tradition in order to form today this ecosystem of well-being, while respecting Nature and its cycles, the land, the Men – farmers, artisans, artists, producers and freethinkers… – and the beautiful know-how.

Through the Domaine des Etangs, located in the Charente Limousine region, a place of Life and of well-being spread over 2,500 acres, in equilibrium between the Sky and the Earth.

Through the Collection Dragonfly, a universal and universalist collection of contemporary and ethnic art, minerals, objects and books, all channelling a message of wisdom, knowledge and heritage.

Through Créations Dragonfly, a line of objects that place the spotlight on the know-how of artisans, respectful of time and of natural resources. Through books, a selection of products and objects related to Nature and its observation, as well as specialties by local producers… which will soon complement the range.

And, today, through opening this “window”, dragonfly.fr, which will, I hope, reach your heart and your eyes, perhaps fill you with wonder, make you smile and, above all, reconnect you with the essential principles of Nature.

Olga de Amaral

Lin, gesso, feuille d’or et peinture acrylique
105 x 225 cm


THE ARTWORK

A screen of light to recharge one’s batteries. The broad surface lends itself to it. The bed of a golden river. A fragment of solar energy. A panel of vibrant scales.

One’s gaze surrenders to the bedazzlement, plunges into it. The presence of natural fibre in the work engulfs one’s gaze. A reconciliation occurs in the combination of linen, gold leaf, gesso and paint, in the ritual gesture performed by Colombian artist Olga de Amaral. The tapestry interweaves the visible and the concealed, the inside and the outside, the instant and eternity.

THE ARTIST

The Colombian artist born in 1932 in Bogota, where she still lives and works, chose textile as early as 1954, as a student at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, Michigan.

Her weaves are composed of materials, colour and space, combining artisanal know-how, minimalist inspiration and secret vision. This piece fully bedecked in gold becomes a source of light and vibration, like each tapestry and monumental textile installation she creates. A labour of patience and introspection, interweaving the visible and the concealed, the inner world and its exposed double.
