Sophie Chaintrier, a native of Paris, is an artist and architect. Her painting aims to capture snapshots of everyday life, like a train or bus ride, a visit to a museum, to a pool or to the countryside and preserve those moments, that might be soon lost to contemporary way of life. These life instants are colored as one would post-produce memories; the object becomes a symbol.
The tableautin is the tangible proof of the journey, of its experience. To bring back a singular object as evidence of a foundational personal experience is what the collector does when he chooses what art to acquire, a treasure to share.
The paintings of Sophie Chaintrier remind us of the place and the role of art in the constitution of our lives.
