"The theme of this exhibition of public armchairs being water, I wanted to mystify my work by representing" Jesus "who walks on water in front of a" poor fisherman ", a water carrier inspired by our Cosette in the famous work of "Victor Hugo", then the hope of a future life on Mars with a character disembarked from a spacecraft in order to bring the water necessary for this future Eden and to finish "Marie" on a starry sky pouring water to give life.

Armchairs by Monique Anis Glina, Fanny Canto-Pichard, Martine Colliot and Micheline Trelis
"The subject of the" Boucle de la Touques "was immediately obvious, because far from being" a dead arm ", this river collects all the natural and recovery water from the surroundings, recycles it in the ecosystem and restores nature as a source of life. We imagined these armchairs on the bank in front of the playground, and Fanny proposed to represent the flora and fauna of the river like a children's book. "
Chair 1: Fanny made a frog who takes a shower under a tap, Monique highlighted a curious nutria, attraction of walkers, as well as a coot and water lilies on the back of the chair.
Armchair 2: Martine chooses a duck that protects herself under an umbrella, Micheline represented a carp, undisputed queen of this river, gushing out of the reeds, as well as a heron, on the back of the armchair, with her pink boots so as not to get wet The paws.
During these painting sessions under the sign of humor and good humor, Micheline began to compose a few rhymes in tribute to this beautiful nature still preserved, and he produced a poem which accompanies this collective work.

Amateur painters and artists at heart, we are among the hardworking students of Françoise Plékan in Saint-Arnoult, and we responded to participate in this project. It is therefore a collective work that we accomplished together with great pleasure on the two armchairs at our disposal.

"Water is a vast world, I looked for inspiration in my daily life, the beaches of Deauville / Trouville and the trawlers that I see entering and leaving the Touques. On one side, the bathers, the other, the fish in the trawls. So on the air of "La maman des poisson" by Boby Lapointe, I thought of a can of sardines. So, I created a school of fish, the wooden slats of armchairs particularly suitable for this. "

As far back as I can remember I have always drawn, painted, tinkered… whether with paper, wood or fabric. I built my bubble with all of this. During my artistic studies at the Regional School of Caen, I explored various techniques of creation and printing. When I leave I create my publishing house: "Les Petites Manies", which allows me to produce in series, although it does not generally exceed 50 copies, literary objects. Literature, poetry, inspire me a lot in my creative process. The serigraphy, which allows me to make my editions, also gives me the possibility of designing and printing prints, which I regularly exhibit with the collective of "L'Encrage" (association of serigraphs in the Yvonne area Guégan) in Caen and elsewhere. I produce very few unique objects. I like series, it's less frustrating and we can share a lot more. Besides, I keep the idea in mind to build bleachers near the Deauville pier…

Armchairs by Michel Tréhet
"Michel Tréhet plays with water in two images. One, serene, illustrating the bathing of two horses returning from nowhere. This effect is amplified by a barely perceptible horizon, blending with a sea of flat calm. The light is soft, as if filtered by a light box. An exceptional moment for these two riders. The second image is a mirror between the sky and the sea, between black and white. As soon as I spotted this contrast, the moment became obsessive. I waited before it became obvious. The black sky, more and more threatening, was reflected with the white foam of the waves. The symmetry was almost perfect, cut in the middle. These two armchairs, side by side, meet each other. They present this richness that the beach of Deauville offers us every day. What better location than the small terrace of "Point de Vue", facing the sea. "
"The world could have been simple like the sky and the sea" - André Malraux

Armchairs by Christian Francheteau
Armchair 1: "Water evokes for me the beginning of life, and without water, there is no life. Man is arrogant and does not realize the omnipotence that is mother earth, represented here by the heart-shaped armchair, but it is also "Love". Man should remain humble and observe all the magic of life that our planet offers us on earth as underwater. Beauty, fragility of the flora and fauna, represented by the different colors that I have chosen, the symbols linked to the sea, the reliefs, all that, we find it in the ocean. The little red heart located at the back of the seat represents man, so that he realizes that he needs nature to live, love and flourish; without it, it could well do without him. Man is alive thanks to the beating of his heart, and it is through love that we will succeed in saving our planet.

Chair 2: "Mother Earth, be kind, I know that you put an eye on humanity, send signs, sounds, turbulence to warn us of the currents to come. The conscious man will resist the cataclysm that will come, he it will be necessary, Love will conquer. Again life will be beautiful, the rainbow will smile, the trees, the flowers, will bloom. Man will rise. But man does not underestimate Mother Earth. "

Born in 1965 in Les Sables d'Olonne (Vendée), Christian Francheteau has since his childhood devoted his free time to learning drawing and modeling alongside his father, himself an oil painter. Since 1994, Christian Francheteau has been working in several sculpture workshops and creating sets for event advertising. What best defines his work is obviously the color omnipresent in his art, it arises in all forms and on all materials. His philosophy of life is to try to bring beauty to the works in order to raise awareness of the prettiness of life.

"My technique of multilayer stencil is to select several colors presented in a drawing, then to create a stencil according to each of them. Superimposed and curved, they will form a work. Then, I have fun superimposing my various creations which will tell a story .... I wanted to stage on my armchair several eras, pay tribute to certain artists who represented the beautiful Normandy beaches, while keeping my "stencil" style with my touch of humor. 1930th century bourgeoises made me think of Eugène Boudin, bathers of the XNUMXs in photographs by Robert Doisneau, and the creator Jean-Paul Gauthier and his marine icons. "

Born in Rouen, Man-X Man-X lived in Fécamp where in 2002 he created the association "Heteroclite Art" specializing in graffiti in order to promote street art. He began the profession of graphic designer at the age of 18, then turned to his current profession, stone cutting. After fifteen years of mostly urban creation, Man-x decided in 2009 to cut out his first stencil. Her favorite themes are: her children - her personal environment. He then revisits music groups, diverted posters, etc. The choice of medium remains for this very broad artist. By dint of practice, the cuts become more and more meticulous, the finesse of the detail of his stencils shows the patience of this young artist.

Coming regularly to Normandy, the sea is, for me, a source of natural inspiration. Now available, I fully indulge in this passion that is painting. I like to describe and share scenes of daily life through our countryside, the characters and the sea. It is my dream part and I escape there with a lot of pleasure and well-being. "

André Hudin armchairs - "The rain"
"The surface to be painted having two perpendicular planes," the rain "seemed obvious to me. The vertical visual perception manifests itself in the form of more or less inclined vertical lines and its horizontal manifestation in the form of concentric circles interfering with each other on a flooded surface. Following an abstract work, started previously on the rhythms, the contrasts of colors, values ​​and forms, the final realization was quickly imposed. "

Amateur painter, since my childhood, I paint and draw for my pleasure and that of my loved ones who share my tastes. My productions are essentially figurative, in a more personal palette of colors. I try to paint an atmosphere around my characters or my architectures, rather than reality. I use oil paint or pastel, and more recently acrylic. I exhibited in several salons (Brécey, Avranches, Le Mans, Fougères) with some success in the late 70s, early 80s. My professional activities (teacher) and family kept me a little away from this hobby. The retreat allowed me to reconnect with it and I exhibit at the salon of the “Rivière Saint-Sauveur”, my commune of residence. I participate in the lessons or workshops of Françoise Plékan in Saint-Arnoult and Yves Riguidel at the MJC in Trouville-sur-Mer. Recently, on the wise advice of Yves Riguidel, I approach the abstract with great curiosity and enthusiasm.

"This work is in the vein of purism, movement created by" Ozenfant "and" Le Corbusier ". This is why the drawing presents synthetic forms, precise contours and flat areas of color. It is the arrangement of colorful shapes that create emotion. This achievement is also a tribute to the poster artist "Cassandre" and his liner "Normandy". The transatlantic crossing Le Havre - New York which will take place in 2017 aboard the "Queen Mary 2 "also made me want to represent Normandy as a region calling for travel and the discovery of other cultures."

Originally from the Pyrenees, I have always been drawn to the seaside. This is why the Côte Fleurie and more particularly Bénerville-sur-Mer where I live, are dear to me.

"My goal: to stimulate everyone's imagination, to decipher the symbolism, thanks to shapes, volumes, lines and colors."
"The Blue Octopus", a fantastic creature, collects messages of love. It symbolizes the strength of the bond. Its tentacles receive your padlocks, expressions of love or attachment.
"The Golden Mermaid", protective goddess, delivers her message of love. The sun's rays on its pageantry magnify its luminous beauty thanks to the mirror effect. The mermaid is the symbol of fertility because water is the source of life. "

"I am a painter and already worked on the theme of fish: they came out of the water, maliciously humanized themselves during their walks ... Here they are back in their environment, in any case, facing the sea, beautiful place . What else could I paint? It only remained to tighten the blades of the armchair, too far apart for the consistency of the drawing. It was then necessary to "landscape" the seat and the backrest in the same continuity of lines then delicately place some of my fish ... Red! And the final touch, the pupil. Now they live !!! "

Luc Michel is a self-taught artist. He has exhibited his paintings for a few years, attending the various regional salons (Saint Romain-La Hêtraie, St Laurent de Brèvedent, Artistes Ouvriers du Havre) where he has been awarded a few prizes. He participated in 2014 and 2016 in "Rouen National Art". We could also see it at the Tourist Office of Le Havre, at the "Pasino", at the Gallery "Les Mots Passants à Etretat", at the Abbey of Montivilliers. For the past three years, he has exhibited his work at the "Galerie Hamon" in Le Havre, and more recently at the "Galerie 13" in Honfleur. The artist paints a playful, humorous, poetic, rich in color universe where fish, nice pretext for some extravagance, compete for the front of the canvas. After working for a long time in watercolor, the paintings he offers you today are done in acrylic, offering an even more colorful palette.

"My path brought me from Germany to the Normandy coast. From east to west, the water attracts and attracts me. This environment populated by fish, the source and resources of man frees me. Its lightness supports, I let myself float at the top of the waves. They break, I find myself on the concrete of the city. There, like a fish in the net, I continue my ride. My fish is found printed in the concrete of the Concrete is a material that endures, typical of our society. In a thousand years a new geological layer will have been formed, that of concrete. "

Holder of a doctoral thesis in geology, this Havraise of German origin, manipulates concrete by producing artistic objects and "tables" for ten years. Using an original technique, she shapes objects out of cement cast on a trellis and boxed in a wooden frame. The addition of colored pigments, metal parts, fragments of mirrors, ceramic fragments, finalize the rendering, leaving a large part to the unpredictability of the mixes while retaining a figurative rendering. The reference to the "Perret" architecture is obvious for this guide-lecturer, approved by the Ministry of Culture since 2003, at the origin of workshops for children offering to experiment with concrete. Currently also represented at the "Galerie Gloux" in Concarneau, the artist already worked in the city of Le Havre in 2003. You will notice a low relief in tinted concrete on the facade of the "Maison Odyssée", the work chosen after competition and financed by the "yellow pieces". The artist is engaged in the dissemination of Art by creating with his association "Regart" the open door of the workshops of artists from the Le Havre region, "Open Art", which takes place every two years. Another successful project is the organization of artistic exchanges with the "H2O gallery" in Magdeburg in Germany.

"Calm but moving, transparent but mirror, the water that surrounds us is fascinating and mysterious, just a detail allows to sublimate it. My goal, beyond this photo, was to capture the light, the reflections and the shadows, the movement of this soothing water. It is through these different angles that this photo encourages reflection and tranquility. "

Born in Deauville and passionate about photography since always, I have since adolescence sought through the photo to immortalize moments of life. I exhibited in Vauville several times and after a break of a few years to start a family, I exhibited again in the spring of 2018 at Domfront en Poiraie.
If I talk to you about photography, I would say that it is above all an art but it is also a passion. A photo tells a story, reveals the beauty of things and landscapes. Nothing like a photo to capture a moment, an emotion, a light ... "

"To create an armchair is to link aesthetics to comfort. Here by the sea the choice of sustainable materials has oriented my choices towards wood. An oak wood which has already crossed many decades, ready to face winds and Reuse a wood, revive it through another function, offer it another design, enhance it. These oak woods were the common thread of my approach, carrying me towards the realization of this armchair boat spirit decorated with a copper porthole. "

Philippe Olive, professional plastic sculptor for almost 30 years, lives and works in Calvados in Audrieu-France.
"His perpetual quest is materialized by an instinctive approach, he creates the emotion of an instant. The work becomes movement and clashes with matter, a search for harmony is established, it is an invitation to contemplation. Going beyond the figurative to better express lightness, fragility, feminine sensuality. Living sculptures, they evolve, reveal their various facets at will. Free form, resulting from the addition of a part of destiny, intuition, emotion for a moment. Philippe Olive takes advantage of tense curves to energize movement and propel forms into space. Playing with materials rich in nobility, with a smooth and rough, it offers a dynamic transforming the unreal into the existential, perception into reality. The single finished work has this universal harmony, releasing a vibration revealing symbols and philosophical messages of love and freedom. "

For the Inuit, Sedna is the goddess of the sea, whom they worship because she is the one who gives them the nourishment necessary for their survival. During their trance, the shamans use a large comb to style Sedna's long hair and soothe her anger.
According to legend, Sedna having no more hands to comb her hair gets angry regularly seeing the dirt that collects in her hair and that she can not remove. The stupidity of the men, as well as the wickedness which they show with regard to the animals are represented by defilements which come to be deposited progressively in the hair of Sedna. The latter, then very upset, keeps the sea animals near it and the people run out of food. It is necessary to respect Nature and women, and for Shamans, to be able to go into a trance in order to appease the anger of Sedna…

The magic of meetings. From one continent to another, since life has existed, water has been the link of discoveries, communication and exchanges. The inhabitants of the sea and the marshes meet there and the magic of this world is created before us, the meeting of the mermaid and the swans.

"Born in 1954, after the time of a professional life, retirement was the time and the door for a new form of reflection and travel in my imagination. Painting became for me the means of expression of this an imaginary that often takes the form of a metaphor. The meeting of the worlds of the Sea and the Marsh is an example. "

"The theme of this armchair project particularly inspired me because water is one of the most precious goods we have on our beautiful planet. In order to make the images of this armchair, I spent several hours in one of the pretty little rivers in the forest of Saint Gatien, my village. The flora and fauna are fragile and delicate, we must preserve them in conscience, because we are all part of the same ecosystem. "

Naiad was born in Jerusalem. A childhood cradled and permeated by the sea and adventure, by the sea and the horizon have surely led her to appreciate the medium of photography with this desire clinging to her heart to testify to what makes sense for the best in a complex world and all the beauties of the living world, to preserve! Contemplative, and admiring that life is a miracle!

"By painting on this bench for the City of Saint-Gatien-des-Bois, I let myself be lulled by the lapping of the water of the stream that crosses this city. All this hoping to give a little reverie, rest and a lot of happiness for walkers. "

Born in 1946, strongly encouraged by my parents, it was from a very young age that I was drawn to drawing and painting. It was in the 1970s that I really started to paint in gouache. Chance was to come across Jean pierre Ferrand, next door neighbor, renowned painter. His advice led me to approach oil painting.
Through my job I participated in major architectural projects in the world of aeronautics (infrastructure and buildings).
Since I retired I devote myself even more to this passion. I often paint from photos that inspire me.

Florence Lebay armchair
"The sea: our origins, its biodiversity, its preservation, its fauna, its wealth of forms and colors, a fascinating world, inexhaustible source of inspiration. The octopus: mysterious animal, with surprising intelligence, attractive to some , repelling for others, present in all the seas of the globe, imposed itself on me to illustrate the theme of the sea. I wanted to make it attractive with its orange color and its big eyes, to the point of sitting in the hollow of its tentacles to invite you to contemplate the sea. "

Florence Lebey born in 1958 in Versailles, daughter of a printer who will make her aware of Art, she joined the Roederer workshop then the Camando school where she will follow studies of interior architecture. In the 1980s, she returned to her maternal origins in Tourgéville where she joined her husband, operator and producer of Calvados in the town. The artistic fiber did not leave it, however, in 2012 she created with five painters "La p'tite galerie" in Honfleur where she could give free rein to her creative spirit.

Annette Boyer armchair
"Solicited by Trouville-sur-mer to create an armchair, I used various techniques and materials in its implementation, representative of my artistic journey. Facing the sea, you can land on my mermaid lounge chair. fabrics very often striped from the seaside deckchairs, the body is streaked with bright colors. Its armrest, reminiscent of the incessant movement of the water, will welcome yours. Its fish tail, metallic interlacing, inspired by the fishing net, will relax your legs, and his benevolent face will ensure the serenity of your rest. I wanted this chaise longue, sculptural and poetic, and chose the little corner of the garden that welcomes it, romantic. "

Plastic artist, insatiable and prolific, Annette Boyer refuses to limit herself to a single mode of expression: paintings, collages, engravings, and sculptures, constitute a generous and unclassifiable work. The materials used, such as metal, paint, earth, resin or paper allow her to create creations that live up to her fantasy.
She gives free rein to a pure artistic expression which she also reveals through her drawings and collages, guided by passionate emotion and imagination. Her expertise, mixed with tremendous creativity transports her into a poetic and fantastic universe that belongs only to her.

Yvelise Holofernes armchair
"For Fauteuils en Seine, I wanted to create playful patterns linked to the place where the armchairs are installed. I therefore proposed a theme on water and the animals found there. I declined their representation of the armchair using colors and graphics representing the aquatic world. The life which abounds in water inspired me for this pictorial creation. "
