" Florence Metgé's characters seem to be born from a primary decomposition: when they are dressed in grunge, marked by the accidents of life, they display a nudity robustly tortured. Caricatured, ill-shaped bodies going to the closest confines of ugliness ... Perhaps up to the spectrum, where the figure becomes just a sign of the human: an eye, a nose, a hand. We are involved in a poetic adventure that resembles a slip giving the tone, revealing the indomitable mobility of being. And these masked characters bent over their history, bring us back from darkness. The painter leaves from the dark towards the light, by successive touches, in order to exorcise the part of devil which reigns in these people waiting for the other, of his glance which defines them and gives them magic force.
This epic painting produces energy above all, that which helps to free oneself from shadows, blasts, from suffering."

lecturer at the Abidjan teacher training college and director
