Zeuxis, Transcend Contemporary Art

Zeuxis, Transcend Contemporary Art

Behind the gallery Zeuxis, named after the Antiquity Greek painter, lies the bright smile and sharp eye of Amélie du Chalard. Passionate always, Amélie guides friends and relatives in the discovery and acquisition of works of art. As time went by, the idea of offering an alternative vision of the art market became clearer and clearer. Bringing together a specialized selection of contemporary artists, painters, sculptors and photographers, she imagined a two sided gallery. A virtual platform offering a bespoke service and the Art Room which exhibits the selected works. In addition, within a beautiful appartment in the 7th arrondissement Amélie proposes to experience art in everyday life via her curation of paintings, mobiles, videography and sculptures. A talent of scenographer that she puts – until the end of July – at the service of The Socialite Family for the 30 rue du Vertbois for which she thinks an exclusive selection. To discover urgently !

Amélie, can you tell us about your journey?

Amélie

So I had a relatively classic course… it’s only recently I took a different one! I’m the daughter of a business lawyer and a sculptor, I am the second in a family of 5 children of which no one is an artist. I grew up in Paris, rather conventional with the side parting and poofy dresses (but still surrounded by art) then after my schooling in the ranks and two years of prep, I went to business school (ESCP). I immediately started working in investment banking… which allowed me to quickly be able to buy the art I liked and meet a lot of talented artists. And Zeuxis was born!

Where do you find the artists you exhibit?

Amélie

They are artists whose approach I admire and such work I’d stand behind! I’m pretty close to them in general, I like to keep track of their work, listen to them, go see them, ask their opinions, etc.

How do you make your selection?

Amélie

Despite the diversity of the worlds of the 50 artists present and used mediums (sculpture, painting, video, etchings, drawings, etc.), there is a certain uniformity in the selection presented. This unit feels well enough, in the Art Room, I think. If I try myself to draw the outlines of my editorial, I will say it includes “abstract works with which we want to live.” Abstraction is my artistic bend. Zola said that “a work of art is a corner of creation seen through a temperament.” It is this very personal filter that I find most beautiful, and it is very strong in abstraction. The artist gives us his view of the world through a language of his own.
