The installation brings together wall based paintings and painted cereal boxes against the backdrop of a light violet painted room. An accompanying text by Jérémie Gransenne lays out a comically complimentary meeting with Coullard described as a moment when “small unforeseen miracles happen in the sinuous course of life.”
Describing the works as ‘serene fireworks’ waiting to come into fruition, Gransenne carries on speaking about her process as if it were a white male painter during the reign of abstract expressionism, where we should “let her do what she does best: paint, without listening to anybody’s opinion, because the truth is that no one has anything to tell her about what she should or should not to do. After all, she’s an artist.”**
