Deesse 1

"Delphine Lebourgeois has been making waves on the London art fair scene with her rich surrealist imagery and ethereal fantasy creations. Widely tipped as an exciting talent in the national press, the French born artist and illustrator has been working in London for the past ten years." - Artfinder

"Delphine Lebourgeois (b 1976), a graduate from Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, and from Central St Martins, has been working in London as an artist and illustrator for more than ten years. 

Throughout her latest 3 solo shows in London “Papillionades, A&D Gallery 2007”, “Amazons and Other stories, Coningsby Gallery 2009”, and “Over the Cover, Frameless gallery - 2011”, Lebourgeois has constantly renewed her intimate exploration of emotions that she identifies as creative energies. Anger, Fear and Joy are amongst the emotions portrayed in her latest on going series “Deesses”. In one of her latest work “Deesse VI”, a group of falling women hold the heads of their enamoured and decapitated men. Inspired by Judith and Holoferne, and not devoid of a certain dose of humour, “Deesse VI, the Fall” turns its feminist content upside down and playfully subverts the code of symbols as we know it." - Delphine Lebourgeois
