Supports studieux, a group exhibition with Tanguy Tolila and Delphine de Luppé
September 4 to October 31, 2017
I always liked the "Support-Surface" movement.
I like the idea of "active" support, that the support of the work does not disappear under the painting and that it becomes even the central element.
At Tanguy Tolila, - The support of his Open Books - old covers - imposes his trace: play the patina of a binding, let guess a title, bypass a subtle detail to better consider ... - In his series Cartes, folds and wear of nautical charts come to punctuate the paper and become part of the work. - In his scores, the notes give the rhythm of the plot and frame the color variations to revive the music.
At Delphine de Luppé, The medium and its contents become a source of inspiration: a text, a sketch, a plan, a photo, as much starting point to build a series. - In the series Recoveries, old industrial designs are revived by a composition of repetitive patterns. - In the Ravalées, the reproductions of sculptures of the Middle Ages are crossed by stylized bridges and the drawing of an architectural masterpiece is completed with the stick of oil in the series Monuments. - In the Theaters series, an element of an archive drawing becomes the heart of its composition ... with all the originality and poetry that Delphine has already accustomed us to.
