Les coquelicots [The poppies] - Catherine Feff
Catherine Feff (b. 1954), Les coquelicots [Poppies], concrete and paint, 2006
On the passageway that climbs from Avenue Albert Gleizes to Place de la Coupole, this giant painted wall with bucolic accents offers an explosive poetic and nostalgic note. In the ultra-modern context of La Défense, the plant theme of poppies takes on its originality and reminds us that in the city, there is life. This fresco also has the merit of reaching a wide audience by combining poetry and nostalgia, with a touch of humour.
Since 1986 Catherine Feff has surrounded herself with a team of painters, architects and technicians to create unique artistic and visual events. Numerous images are now inscribed in the collective memory of major cities in France and abroad, born of creative concepts skilfully implemented where the artist gives substance to her dreams in large-scale compositions.
