agnès b. (Agnès Troublé, born 1941 in Versailles) is a French iconic fashion designer, patron, publisher, and collector.
Claire Tabouret (born 1981 in France, lives and works in Los Angeles) studied at the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris. Motivated by a sensitivity to the passing of time and the floodgates of vulnerability opened by human relationships, Tabouret's painting practice is paced between periods of productive urgency and quiet reflection, and animated by layers, fabrics, and full, loose brushstrokes. Her hydrous palette is suspended somewhere in the ether between the synthetic hues of makeup and subdued tones of the earth, simultaneously referencing the natural and artificial ingredients of representation. Tableaux depicting bodies in confrontation, portraits, paintings of assemblies of people from young debutants to migrants at sea, and landscapes are often washed in color fields, alternately evoking the possibility of anywhere and site specificity. For her monotypes, Tabouret utilizes the phantom stains left by the press to develop transparency and opacity in her portrayals of conflict, sexuality, and desire.
