Et si les nuages étaient de la barbe à papa...

An incursion into the imaginary world of Magali Thibault Gobeil. An inspiring world, imprinted with joy and happiness, in which an endless array of forms and colours fills you with satisfaction and leaves a sweet taste in your mouth. As they delicately reach the Earth, her pieces welcome us into a candid as light-hearted universe which recalls childhood. In a more and more complex world that is hard to keep a grasp on, we need to lift our spirits and enlighten our days. Full of life and movement, they tickle and titillate our senses. They make our bodies more alive and filled with emotion. Carried away by her imaginary madness, Magali unconventional artworks, highlights her decadent obsession with her voluptuous and excessive forms while exacerbating her playful side.
