Converging geometries

Converging geometries

Bauduin, Ode Bertrand, Jean-François Dubreuil, Renaud Jacquier Stajnowicz, Claude Pasquer, Denis Pondruel

In this series of three exhibitions we invite you to discover, or rediscover, the gallery’s contemporary artists. They present the work of sixteen of the artists we represent, who honor us with their friendship and their loyalty, the majority for more than thirty years. With conviction and talent, these artists defend a movement that has become the DNA of the gallery: "geometric abstraction." These exhibitions highlight the richness of geometric abstraction—its coherence, its diversity, and its pertinence. With these three group shows, we thought it would be interesting to offer an overview of the artists’ work from different periods and to observe the ways in which the trajectories and the viewpoints of these artists converge and interact with one another. There are fortuitous mysteries and alchemies to be found in abstraction, geometry, and color. Our artists give us some pointers in this direction and open up other avenues, to our great delight.

Geometric Sensitivity

Geometric Sensitivity

Jean Deyrolle, Emile Gilioli, Jean Leppien, Alberto Magnelli

Alberto Magnelli (1888-1971), Jean Leppien (1910-1991), Jean Deyrolle (1911-1967), and Emile Gilioli (1911-1977), brought together by the Galerie Lahumière for a show titled Géométries Sensibles, represent the rebirth of geometric abstraction in France after the Second World War. These artists—born between the end of the nineteenth century and the first decade of the twentieth, in Germany, Italy, or France—were not always at the same stage of artistic development, the war having been a period of exile, imprisonment, isolation, and great destitution.
