Lise Stoufflet was born in Paris in 1989. She graduated from the Fine Arts School of Paris un 2014 and continues today her practice in the suburb of Paris in Aubervilliers where she created and develops with fifteen artists Le Houloc; A Studio and Artist-run-space. Lise Stoufflet develops a work of painting and drawing, but also explores the object as a possible overflow of the fictional images she build. Her works are innocently disconcerting and beautifully surreal. Narrative is richly present in her paintings, the story is not always clear and, often times, unsettling. Part of this tension arises from Stoufflet’s beautifully contained manipulation of color, which marries a contrast of pastel, soft colors with rich, dark hues and creates atmospheres of mystery and intrigue. The scenes her paintings reflect this as well. Each piece is a snapshot of a larger whole, a hint of a story without really revealing anything about what is going on. These moments are richly evocative of something, and Stoufflet is almost toying with the viewer, dangling the thread of answers before their eyes, yet showing almost nothing at all. (…) her works invite viewers into a conversation with her paintings, her colors, her forms. She invites the viewer into the work itself as a voyeur, showing them something that only they will and do understand.
