Gloria Stetbay, multifaceted artist, lives and works in Provence. She masters many forms of artistic and musical expression. Whether it is painting or sculpture, her favorite themes are as diverse as her works. In her studio-gallery open to the public she uses all types of materials, paper, wood, steel, stainless steel, resin, bronze. Classical, figurative, geometric abstraction, abstract expressionism were the preliminary steps to her current expression characterized by a plicate, singular and very personal style that she calls Deleuzien. Obeying a deep desire to unite painting and music in a single work of art, Gloria Stetbay, songwriter, tightly blends the two disciplines. In the words of Paul Claudel, "the eye listens".
Her musical compositions coexist and spontaneously merge with her work in a constant search for harmony.

"The current period"

The Fold is omnipresent in my work.

Fold, unfold, everything is folded. The earth, our body, the world, the outer space are constantly forming folds. Cloth drapes, geological folds, body wrinkles, skin tissues, waves ... I like their shape, their imprint. It is the movement of life. Folds evoke for me flexibility, undulation, concentration, but also strength and resistance. The impression left by the tectonic confrontations, the empty and the full and an infinity of themes which give rise to an exciting research and a philosophical reflection.

 
 
The presence of folds in my paintings

For me folds are architectural. They can be built smoothly or angularly. I use papers that I choose according to textures and densities. They must be malleable but firm. It is a solid body that I extract from its context to give it a new form and a new aesthetic sense.

 

 

In the plate tectonics, the collision of matter symbolizes a timeless cosmic dimension. I am fascinated by the geological evolutions, by the play of internal forces of the earth, by the overlaying and overlapping of rocks, the reliefs, the birth of folds as unchanging and out of time.
