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.

Lullaby, 2006

Sérigraphie sur tissu, suite de 25 Ed. 3/12 + 2 AP

THE ARTWORK

The printed backdrop looks like music paper and the title sets the tone: Lullaby.

It hums another tune of everyday life. Based on objects belonging to her, Louise Bourgeois has created these friendly drawings: scissors, candy box, magnifying glass… Their moving proportions, their curves that stave off injuries, result in kindly, organic shapes the colour of life. They caress and appease the gaze. The composition, as one describes a musical piece, rises here in a chromatic, sensual, sensitive and human chant.

THE ARTIST

A key figure of the twentieth century art scene, her work is inseparable from her own history, as a girl, a woman and a mother, and is accomplished like a vital and salutary gesture.

The 4 pieces featured in the exhibition, drawings and bronzes, testify to the quest that was hers: namely capturing the inexpressible in the world by redefining the outlines of the female body, by recreating life-producing forms in blood-red lines, in volumes that disrupt the definition of gender. A liberating force inhabits each of her works.
