In the "Les Trois Énergies" art studio, you'll discover the works of author, painter and sculptor Bénédicte Charpentier.
Her drawings, paintings, sculptures, photographs, maps and books bear witness to the landmarks we can find within ourselves in connection with nature.
The light expressed in her paintings and sculptures is her favourite subject.
Thanks to the polished, shiny parts of his sculptures, the bronze captures the light and redistributes it to us.
In painting, the light expressed becomes visible through the material. Let's get inspired!
In her studio, you can also discover the four books she has written, all of which are an important aid to this approach: "Un Potentiel Infini", "La créativité, clé de l'évolution, Sois ce que tu es, matière et lumière" and "Les Trois Énergies", as well as 3 art books describing her work on Light.
His latest book, a tribute to Victor Pernet, his great-great-grandfather who directed the excavations at Alesia from 1861 to 1922, invites us to discover the links between Art and Archaeology and the message that both offer us for our lives: "Victor Pernet - Mémoire d'Alésia, mémoire pour notre temps - Quel message pour aujourd'hui?".
"To pay tribute to Victor Pernet, I have organised an event in September 2022: an exhibition of paintings, sculptures and photos at the Musée Napoléon III in Alise-Sainte-Reine, in association with Le Muséoparc.
During a lecture in the auditorium, I explained how his research and discoveries of yesterday offer us a message for today, and how our respective approaches have a plethora of resonances and an acute meaning for the times in which we live".
His work on "The Three Energies" is arousing a great deal of interest. It's so important today to become aware of what secretly drives us, to put words and meaning to it, to live through the (sometimes difficult) passages that mark out our lives, and all the more so today at the heart of an era that is, to say the least, changing.
Let's recognise today that we have "Infinite Potential" within us and that we can tap into it through creativity. Our balance and well-being will benefit enormously!
Art and creativity at Alise - Bénédicte Charpentier's method
The principle behind this method, created over 35 years ago, is as follows:
The potential within us is infinite.
How can we express it and regain our confidence?
Through drawing, painting and modelling, this method enables us to open up to our own creativity, rediscover that part of ourselves that is infinitely rich and get in touch with the marvellous artist that lies dormant in each and every one of us.
Courses are available at the studio on request.
3-day courses are held in February, May and June. (See website: www.benedictecharpentier.fr)
These are marvellous cultural moments, experienced at the heart of each and every one of us, children, teenagers and adults alike.
What potential lies within every human being! Let's respect it, let's cultivate it like we cultivate our own garden to see a beautiful humanity blossom, to harvest the fruits bursting with love and sunshine.
Photography, which was my first activity, inspired me to pay tribute to Nature.
"Nature et Couleurs" is my latest art book and the theme of an exhibition that will take place in August 2024 at Alise-Sainte-Reine, Espace Culture Napoléon III.
