Moumou’s Square: looking through the artists’ eyes

Crossed Looks Over Moumou’s Square is a new exhibition now open at Trinity Yazimoto’s Petit Chat gallery. It features 20 pieces of art by Ermandalee and Lo Coeur, the result of an invitation extended to them both to create a series of images of the gardens of Moumou’s Square and Petit Chat.

With ten pieces from each artist on display along the paths and in the grounds of the gardens, visitors are invited to stroll around at their leisure and view them. Information givers scattered among the easel mounted pieces ensuring that, whichever direction one takes on arriving, information on the exhibition and the artists is readily available.

Many of the pieces on display are located alongside or near to the parts of the garden that inspired them, allowing a direct comparison between subject and image, and an opportunity to more directly see the subject through the eyes of the artist. This is particularly effective where Ermandalee and Lo have produced pictures of the same subject; not only does this help “see” the subject as each artist may have looked on it, it also allows one to enjoy their individual but very complementary styles.

Viewing the art in this way also gives the visitor time to appreciate the gardens, which have been landscaped for Trinity by Trixxie Nitely. As you do, you’ll find there are plenty of places to sit and simply enjoy things, and Trinity’s hospitality is both warm and inviting: she offers places to sit and eat or drink both indoors and outdoors; so don’t be surprised if you find yourself coming back for future visits simply to enjoy the friendly ambience of the gardens.

And when you are looking around, don’t forget to take a jump down the rabbit hole to Trinity’s underground gallery where she displays her own work. It offers a further artistic delight to visitors, as I noted when last blogging about it.

Crossed Looks Over Moumou’s Square will be open through until Saturday, March 21st, 2015, inclusive, and is a recommended visit.
