bruno dufourmantelle

from october 21st to 29, 2021

Bruno Dufourmantelle’s work is traversed by a corporeal relation with painting and the implications he has in the formulation of an absolute plasticity; this is as true of the paintings explicitly titled « Battles » as it is for the more recent works in which the image appears out of a physical confrontation with the organic aspects of pictorial materials and techniques : « I depart from black backgrounds in order to show light » , black background, light, colours, forms...

This dynamism proves the real quality of this work, whose forms (the content, the subject) do not preexist, but emerge from the void in the surface effects : « Look for beings in painting through painting ». Juxtaposed, isolated, intermingled forms that are difficult to make out (rock-like bodies, horizon-line bodies, landscape bodies) emerge from a « material of light », worked with the impressions of brushstrokes and blades (a series entitled Paysages humains, human landscapes). More-detailed hands form landmarks, while the bodies juxtapose their solitudes and their secrets-neither united nor separated.

Bruno Dufourmantelle occupies this place in which the distinction between realism and abstraction dissolves or becomes blurred, the form and the figure meld in the exploration of pictorial practice. His paintings therefore represents a memory and it refers to the emotional turbulence that a gesture can produce. The artist makes references to what we can’t say, in its capacity to create an analogy with the invisible and the unintelligible: « Paintings are interior places. I am, above all, seeking the interiority of beings and the invisible ». He thus demonstrates, here in a musical mode, that painting is a valid substitute for the depth of emotion or expression.

Dans le vif

Dans le vif, a collective exhibition by Hélène Durdilly, Laurence Garnesson, Louise Frydman and Marine Vu

January 2019

Enter the heart of the matter.

Get to the point.

With accuracy.

Our 4 artists, each in their own way, go to the essential, use “less” to reach “more”. A time of withdrawal. A certain economy of means, the elimination of the excess, a necessary discipline, a decisive rigor and a primordial mastery of the objectives. 

Hélène Durdilly study the relation to the void. The background material, rugged, alive, whitened with gesso which is crossed by straight black lines traced with certainty.

In artworks by Laurence Garnesson feels the commitment of the body in painting. Imagine almost the physical impetus of the route that travels with conviction the canvas or the paper. A lyrical energy and mastered.

In Louise Frydmans works are the pure natural and mineral forms. They are self-sufficient, without colour or artifice. In motion or motionless, it is light that brings a complementary dimension to these ceramics that leave you dreamy.

Very suggestive essential, almost invisible are works by Marine Vu. The artist works under the surface of the canvas. The motif takes shape in the canvas or the paper itself. We show without showing. We feel. Almost absent the pattern is gradually revealed between the shadow and the light that come to meet the surface of the work.

The time of the essential. In the heart.
