All Eyes On: Delphine Alphonse


I live, I grew up and I was born in the Paris region. My family is from French Guyana and this multicultural atmosphere has greatly inspired my work. I follow an artistic course and more particularly focused on photography. The subject Ideal with is the ” identity “, mine, that of those who look like me. I take  pictures of my family and spend a lot of time collecting old family photos and old postcards from Guyana. But painting is a discipline that I have always enjoyed, so I enjoy varying my techniques. (Collage, illustration, photomontage…) Sometimes I take part in markets and collective exhibitions such as le Salond’Art Abordablede la Bellevilloise I think artistic expression allows you to communicate certain things that you can’t necessarily say.


One of the things that inspires me are the people in my daily life: my colleagues, my family, my friends, those anonymous people who look like us. I paint those around me, what speaks to me, what looks like me. So, I paint a lot of portraits of black women. Among the representations of the black woman, we find a lot of the image of the strong or sexy woman, I do not really recognize myself in  this type of representation and I rather want to leave a memory of these faces in dream-like universes. Indeed, I have always greatly appreciated the illustrations of children’s books, and even  adults, I find it wonderful to be able to play with the world of dreams. Everyone can find an interpretation there, can see what they wants to see. My work technique is mixed, I use painting, collage but also photography and sometimes photomontage in some works. I recover materials, plants, book pages, maps, etc. which have their own history and embed them in my paintings, each detail is important to me.
