Jean-François Dubreuil

Jean-François Dubreuil

Lures and pleasures of a conceptual painter

Jean-François Dubreuil’s paintings are striking. Bold colours, juxtaposed rectangles, backgrounds saturated with solid colours or well-endowed with whites broken by grey or yellow, where parallelepipeds take over, surrounded by these same colours which, elsewhere, filled the whole background, sometimes crossed by diagonals. The effect thus produced immediately places this painting on the side of a geometric abstraction that was thought to be in the past, were it not for a few resistance fighters engaged in the beyond, or the below, we do not know, of history. However, on closer inspection, or over a longer period of time, there is something wrong with this foregone conclusion, but what?

Past exhibitionFrom 10 March to 30 April

Georges Folmer

Georges Folmer

An abstraction 1950-70

As part of the publication of a monograph on the work of Georges Folmer (1895-1977), written by Lydia Harambourg at Editions El Viso, the gallery is pleased to present a selection of works by the artist. This more contemporary reading of his works will allow everyone to get an idea of the contribution to geometric art of this artist, who was also the founder of the Measure Group (1961-1966), bringing together artists such as Marcelle Cahn, Günter Fruhtrunk, Jean Gorin or even Aurélie Nemours.

Past exhibitionFrom 13 January to 26 February

Converging geometries III

Converging geometries III

Charles Bézie, Jean-Gabriel Coignet, Jean-Michel Gasquet, Hans-Jörg Glattfelder, Yves Popet, André Stempfel

We invite you to discover the final part of our trilogy, entitled Géometries Croisées (Converging-Geometries), with six other contemporary artists, painters and sculptors. The works chosen were created at different periods of their careers. Despite all these years, tests, research and interrogations, the paths of these artists present a great coherence and a fidelity to geometrical abstraction which commands respect. The works by each artist, their views on geometry and colour intersect and continue to reflect each other, much to our delight. They offer us a fine overview of the history of geometric and constructed abstraction over the last thirty years.

Modem, Debrecen - Hungaria

By 1930, Paris had become the European hub of various nonfigurative trends, including abstract art, and the center of international avant-garde. Active in most of these, Abstraction-Création was established in 1931 by Auguste Herbin, Jean Hélion et Georges Vantongerloo,. It quickly became a meeting point for artists of different nationalities, covering more than 20 nations, whose activity had a key role in the progressive movements.
