Olivier Nouvellet Gallery. 19 Rue de Seine. París 75006. 16th-27th october 2007.
gallery on the Rue de Seine. It includes sixteen small
and medium-sized paintings. “Object-paintings”
whose structure induces me to give greater
importance to flat surfaces and straight lines.
Diagonal lines separate the pieces into enclosed
fields of colour. Painted cubes, apparently self-
contained but once installed forming part of one and
the same group. Painted volumes which inter-relate
with each other. Their deep edges establish a
sequence before our eyes whereby it appears that
each painting does not entirely cease because its
edge connects with that of the next. They could all
form one joint piece. Straight lines separate the
coloured areas of each painting into different flat
surfaces. Defined by lines and edges, they provide
us with a glimpse of distant horizons; abstract
geometric landscapes. As the viewer moves around
the exhibition space, he/she is afforded different
visions of the same painting.
