Paul, the beach and the painters. Paul Rousteau

The Villa Noailles presents here the artistic commission given to the French photographer and artist Paul Rousteau, carried out in residence every summer for the past five years in Hyères, with eight French contemporary painters invited to spend a creative time on the theme of the beach :Florent Groc, Diane Dal Pra, Marion Bataillard, Thomas Levy Lasne, Jules Magistry, Jean Claracq, James Della Negra & Marcos Carrasquer.

Born in France in 1985, Paul Rousteau explores the limits of photography and our perceptions. His art, made up of optical illusions, navigates between digital art and pictorial materials. Bordering on abstraction and sacred art, his radiantly colorful images reveal the artist’s profound quest to “sublimate the visible in order to reveal the invisible”. From portraits to landscapes, her hallucinatory, contemplative visuals are in demand from leading magazines, brands and museums (New York Times, Hermès, M Le Monde, Louis Vuitton, Mucem, Vogue, the Louvre).

Drawings of the day, Axel Champloy

Venue : Villa Noailles, L’Annexe : 26 rue de Verdun, Hyères

A young artist from Hyères, Axel Champloy is known for sketching the local landscape and events directly from life. You’ve probably already come across him with his mobile studio, which he carries everywhere he goes. He has designed a tablet with straps that enables him to draw standing up, moving among the crowds as he captures their gestures and voices. He draws, writes and creates watercolors on small sheets that he assembles into travel journals.

In 2023, he was invited by the Villa Noailles to capture the highlights of the Centenary program. The exhibition features almost 20 meters of drawings, covering the International Festival of Fashion, Photography and Accessories, the Design Parade festivals in Hyères and Toulon, and the opera “Ressusciter la rose”. For the Annexe, Axel Champloy changes scale and paints large-format portraits of artists close to Charles and Marie-Laure de Noailles.
