La Vie in Blue

Alexandre Rosa for Saint Cloud

The custom-made wallpaper installed at Saint Cloud tells of quest for beauty and vanity. With his signature blue-lead pencil drawings, Alexandre Rosa interlaces branches and corals with braids to frame a female figure in his narrative. This muse flirts with the viewer, hiding herself behind a peacock’s plumage, while dilapidated crystals and hairpieces illustrate femininity and raw natural beauty.
