Surpassing, Reconstructing the Real- Extention

Surpassing, Reconstructing the Real- Extention

F. Del Marle, G. Folmer, J. Gorin

What strikes us first is that Félix Del Marle (1889–1952), Georges Folmer (1895–1977), and Jean Gorin (1899–1981) all started out as figurative painters. Curiously, some artists return to representational subjects after a period of abstraction, as did Malevich, Hélion, and Herbin. In this way, Del Marle went back to representational painting between 1930 and 1940, while Folmer continued in this vein until 1943, reverting back to it from time to time until 1960. Gorin abandoned it altogether in 1926.

Converging geometries - Extension

Converging geometries - Extension

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.
