Using raw forms and bold colors akin to the brutalism of street art, French artist Anne-Lise Coste weaves together a wide variety of references in her eclectic and energetic body of work.
From abstract forms to snippets of text, Coste connects much of her oeuvre with the repetition of certain motifs or patterns. In doing so, her works form a satisfying cohesive whole that beckon the viewer to look closer into her poetic yet often politically charged works.
Born in Marseille, France, in 1973, Coste studied around the world and now claims Orthoux, France, as her home. She has been an active exhibitor of her work, with recent exhibitions including: "La conquête de l’espace, la chute des feuilles, les neiges éternelles, l’avancée des déserts, la puce électronique" at Ellen de Bruijne Projects, Amsterdam (2017) ; “Your Skull, My Skull” at Reinhard Hauff in Stuttgart (2018); and “120 tons of body and soul” at Nogueras Blanchard in Madrid (2019).
