Pastels. A French touch in Dubai

The works of young French artist & ceramist Héloïse Bariol

From 29 March to 29 April, Comptoir 102 will showcase the works of young French artist & ceramist Héloïse Bariol.

Comptoir 102, the UAE’s popular lifestyle concept store that has been acclaimed by many international guides and magazines, is back this year for another edition of the world’s most internationally diverse art fair, Art Dubai. From 29 March to 29 April, Comptoir 102 will showcase the works of young French artist & ceramist Héloïse Bariol.

The exhibition, titled, “Pastels”, unfolds around a unique and small series of tableware that mixes the beauty of the artisanal gesture and that of the pictorial gesture. Héloïse’s love for art doesn’t go unnoticed as many of her creations are inspired from the 20th century painters she loves. Like a canvas, Héloïse uses her table art creations to offer abstract compositions, with free and genero us movements. Glazed earthenware constitutes a support rich in materials and shapes for experimenting with pictorial work. This technique allows a great freedom, both in the manufacture as in the usage of the products.

Comptoir 102 is honored to once again be a part of Art Dubai , and to host this pop-up exhibition that reinforces their efforts to bring versatile, unconventional and original pieces of art to Dubai. All the pieces from the exhibition will be available to purchase at Comptoir 102.

Héloïse Bariol is a true art lover. After training at the Valence Fine Arts School and obtaining a professional Master’s degree in Artist’s Books/Art Publishing, Héloïse trained at Dieulefit and then continued for three years with renowned ceramist Jérôme Galvin. She settled in Rouen in 2014, continuing her work as an artist and ceramist/potter. Everything in her research, beyond format and category, is part of her own endeavour to seek out points of connection between different disciplines via forms that often refer to notions of usefulness or practicality. She has developed a unique artistic vocabulary making numerous references to architecture and design, and the fine and applied arts. She produces pieces in glazed clay with utilitarian, decorative or sculptural shapes. This cross-disciplinary, unencumbered stance, together with her technical artisanal skills, allows her to demonstrate the universality of folk art and to rethink the mode of presence and the meaning of an object. All her pieces are unique and true little pieces of art.
