Peintures qui perlent
12 janvier – 26 février 2008
Vernissage : samedi 12 janvier de midi à 20h
Interacting with our new exhibition space, Impasse Beaubourg, Daniel Dezeuze presents a new body of works: « Petites pièces pour vents d’ouest » (Small Pieces for Winds from the West), « Diptyques » (Diptychs), and « Peintures qui perlent » (« Beading » Paintings). This series evokes mosaics in suspension with reflexive, pearl like surfaces.
The show was conceived as a discreet celebration of Chinese Taoist painters.
A founding member of the 70s avant-garde artistic movement Supports/Surfaces, Daniel Dezeuze has been pursuing his questioning of the conventions of painting (stretcher, frame, canvas) for over 40 years.
Using a variety of media, from pastel to stone or fabric, Daniel Dezeuze inscribes himself in the re-reading of American abstract art while rejoicing himself in the use of « poor » or « common » materials. There is an enigmatic playful dimension in his work, which pushes the artist to always return to drawing in a provocative way, alluding to many foreign cultural references (either ballistic or Chinese).
Exhibitions include solo shows in Montpellier (Galerie Hambursin-Boisanté), Mexico City (Casa de Francia), Nancy (Galerie Hervé Bizes), Marseilles (Galerie Athonor), and group show « La Force de l’Art », at the Grand Palais in Paris in 2006. Daniel Dezeuze also exhibited in Cologne (Galerie Krings-Ernst) and Toulouse (Les Abattoirs) at the occasion of the unveiling of his public commission for the city subway. He also participated in the traveling museum exhibition: "Ombres et lumières. Quatre siècles de peinture française" (Shadow and light, four centuries of French painting).
