Une abstraction musicale

En présence de Kitty Holley, fille de l'artiste
Galerie Valérie Bach
15 rue Veydt - 1060 Brussels T+32 2 533 03 90
De 1937 à 1945, Francine Holley (Liège 1919, Bruxelles 2020) s'initie simultanément à la musique (premier prix de piano au Conservatoire de Liège) et aux arts plastiques, à l'Académie des Beaux-Arts de sa ville natale.

En 1946, elle se fixe à Paris et fréquente les ateliers d'André Lhote et Fernand Léger, puis ceux de Jean Dewasne et Edgar Pilet, ce qui l'amène naturellement à réaliser vers 1950 ses premières œuvres abstraites. Elle participe, en Belgique, aux mouvements Art Abstrait, Art Construit et Formes, animés par Jo Delahaut. À la recherche d'une géométrie souple et dynamique sur des fonds strictement en aplats, l'artiste évoque, à partir des années 1980 surtout, la rythmique de portées musicales, ou bien la calligraphie arabe, ou encore quelques signes totémiques. L'austérité de la structure en armatures monumentales et hiératiques qui arpente l'ensemble de l'œuvre, incite l'artiste à pratiquer un chromatisme lumineux.

Texte de Serge Goyens de Heusch

La galerie est ravie de présenter en solo show une sélection d'oeuvres de Francine Holley, au 1er étage de ses espaces, du 13 janvier au 25 mars 2023. Nous avions présenté son travail dans l'exposition "Painting Belgium, Abstractions en temps de paix (1945-1975)" fin 2019 puis dans "Belgium Women, Peinture belge abstraite d'après-guerre" fin 2020.

Toute l'équipe de la galerie se joint à moi pour vous souhaiter une année 2023 débordante de bonheur, de belles surprises et de prospérité.

Nous nous réjouissons de vous retrouver prochainement!

To open 2023, Galerie Lelong & Co. is exhibiting a collection of recent works by the British artist David Nash. For 50 years, he has been guided by a creative instinct obedient to his preferred subject: trees. Often taking the form of sculptures – sometimes monumental, sometimes humbler in format – David Nash adapts to the form dictated by the trunk or branch to conceive his sculptures and installations. The other facet of his oeuvre, drawings on paper, similarly embodies this close awareness of the material. Although he does not eschew plant forms altogether, in this exhibition he favours minimal abstractions with rich colours that sing joyously.

David Nash (born in 1945 at Esher, England) lives and works in Blaenau Ffestiniog in North Wales. He has been a member of the Royal Academy since 1999. His work, widely represented in the major museums of Europe, America, Australia and Japan, has been the subject of retrospectives at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and at Kew Gardens in England, as well as at the National Museum Cardiff and at Towner Eastbourne.

Pierre Soulages opera gallery © Philippe DesmazesPIERRE SOULAGES

"One day I was painting, black had invaded the entire surface of the canvas, without shapes, without contrasts, without transparencies.
In this extreme I saw in a way the negation of black.
My instrument was no longer black, but this secret light coming from black."

Pierre Soulages

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of the artist Pierre Soulages. He was 102 years old, and leaves an immense legacy. Our condolences to his wife, Colette, who accompanied him for so many years. One of the greatest painters of our time, but mostly a soul in search of the absolute, through his relentless work on the depth and luminosity of the color black. This passion had seized him, as a child, in front of the prehistoric steles of the Museum of Rodez, where he was born. Or even, in Conques, the 11th century abbey, as a child, where years later he would create incredible stained glass windows (1992 - 1994). It was at that moment that the certainty of art and his vocation to paint had come to him. The architecture of the abbey of Sainte-Foy impressed him, just like a vision. Painting, engraving, lithography, he declined on all mediums his obsession with black, digging deep in what had marked his childhood. "The things that were fraternal to me, the earth, the old wood, the stones, the wet iron, all these rough things certainly marked me. I have always preferred them to pure and lifeless materials."

Light and darkness, rough and smooth, matte and shiny: Soulages was the painter of contrast, which found its incarnation in abstraction and his Outrenoir - beyond black, to light.

"Soulages was one of the most innovative painters of the 20th century, a remarkable artist and extraordinary person. He will be missed but his work will undoubtedly live on." 

- Gilles Dyan, Opera Gallery Founder and Chairman

Sooyoung Chung; detail of "Where Is My Banana" 2022, Acrylic on linen, 150 x 150 cm, 59 x 59 in, (SYC 22.001)Over the Influence Presents Sooyoung Chung's Solo Show
Asia Now

Over the Influence Gallery was founded in Hong Kong in 2015 and expanded to Los Angeles in 2018 and Bangkok in 2022. We are thrilled to announce our forth gallery location in Paris opening with the show of Thai artist Gongkan. The gallery represents an international roster of emerging and established artists working across different mediums and disciplines. OTI is dedicated to championing artists who challenge traditional approaches to studio practice and presents a dynamic program that explores the intersection of contemporary art, architecture, design, music, fashion, and other forms of visual expression.

For the 2022 edition of Asia Now, Over the Influence would like to present for the first time a solo show exhibition that invites all of us to rethink about our relationship with our everyday objects.
The artist present individual bodies of work that speak in conversation with one another, creating an exhibition that is witty and playful. The show allows viewers to escape into the same fantasy world we did as children, with the humour and satire that adulthood necessitates.

For the artist Sooyoung Chung, from South Korea this series presents her most recent series of works and direction in her creative process. In the past year, the artist worked exclusively in linen canvas and focused on this series titled “ Biographical Object”. Each work has a simple number as a reference of our daily objects. Chung’s paintings in this series work in conjunction to each other to create a feeling of one painting - so much so that one can even see pieces as an unique wall of ordinary objects. This intentional choice continues to show how intertwined these series are. His pieces feature 2D versions of the artist's 3D figures.

Barakat Gallery New London Location

Dear Friends, Clients, and Patrons,

After almost 20 years, earlier this month we moved out of our Gallery on 58 Brook Street to make way for the re-development of the entire block.

We have not gone much far away though, and we relocated in a much larger space down the road in 31 Brook St, W1K 4HF, Mayfair, London.

In the last few months we have been considerably busy organising this move, and I am sure that the collectors and art lovers who are reading this email will understand the challenges and the excitement of organising a new space.

For my entire life I have always treasured antiquities for their ability to tell stories and in the last few months during the move our curators and staff have treasured the opportunity to caress every single artefact readying it for the move. It has been an incredibly inspiring experience as we have been able to think about every artefact anew, and we are looking forward to share our enthusiasm with you.

Personally, I hope to be able to welcome many of you personally in the new location.

Wishing each and everyone of you to be in the best of health,
Fayez Barakat

Vernissage de l'exposition à la Galerie Makowski Paris
le samedi 15 octobre à partir de 16 h
7 rue de Chaumont 75019 PARIS
Entrée libre.

La Galerie Makowski Paris et Karine TAILLANDIER sont heureux de vous convier au vernissage de l'exposition de Karine TAILLANDIER.

Karine a 50 ans, mi-Parisienne, mi-provinciale.
Journaliste puis créatrice d’une agence de communication à 28 ans, elle accompagne aujourd’hui des entreprises dans la création d’activités, le développement de projets. Pas de formation artistique, même si elle a depuis des années la passion de la photographie. Parmi ses activités, l’accompagnement d’un label artistique - galerie d’art parisienne, B’ZZ, dédiée à l’art africain contemporain.

Elle a commencé à dessiner en 2016. Après un « léger » incident de parcours ;). Une jolie maladie qui «lui a offert ça, et c ‘est déjà pas mal». Comme un robinet qui se serait ouvert. Il coule à flots aujourd’hui et semble intarissable. Pourquoi ? Parce qu’à ce moment-là, les mots, dont elle vient et qui sont en grande partie son métier, lui ont semblé inadaptés à ce qu’elle a eu besoin de transmettre de son vécu, de ses sentiments. Trop complexes. Trop lourds pour ceux qui les recevraient.

Alors elle s’est mise à raconter sa vision du monde en images.

Ce sont des histoires courtes, qui lui viennent de ses rencontres, de ce qu’elle voit, de ce qu’elle vit, de ce qu’elle ressent du monde et des gens. Ce sont « ses aventures ».

Elle travaille sur ordinateur, avec son index qui trace directement sur le pad. Ce sont des dessins où les personnages sont souvent d’un seul trait. Jaillis de son imaginaire malgré elle, finalement. Elle n’a jamais pris aucun cours, elle apprend donc en dessinant. Et elle adore ça.

Parfois un peu «manga», noir et blanc ou de multiples couleurs, on dit de son travail qu’il est abstrait figuratif et souvent plein de poésie autant que de dureté. Comme de jolis paradoxes.

"A Taste of Mille-Feuilles"
21.10.22 - 12.11.22
Opening October 20th 2022 from 5 to 8 pm
2, Avenue Matignon 75008 PARIS FRANCE

Zuckerman Strouk1m
Artist, Allison Zuckermann in her studio, with artworks from "A Taste of Mille-Feuilles" show

Allison Zuckerman's large scale canvases take a selection of female- orientated images from art history and, through the application of oil and acrylic paint, crystal rhinestones, and embedded archival CMYK ink, fuse them together in collage. Her work juxtaposes colourful pop imagery with a historical aesthetic. Through this marriage of epochs Zuckerman seeks to reclaim female figures from a male-dominated art historical canon, and does so with palpable excitement, humour and love.

Allison Zuckerman (b. 1990 Harrisburg, PA) lives and works in New York, NY.

La Galerie Jean François Cazeau présente Nicolas LefeuvreNicolas Lefeuvre
face aux Maîtres Modernes : Picasso, Matisse, Masson.

A l'occasion de la huitième édition d'Un Dimanche à la galerie oragnisée par le Comité des Professionel des Galeries d'Art depuis 2015, la Galerie Jean-François Cazeau a le plaisir de vous présenter sa nouvelle exposition qui a lieu du 1 au 19 octobre 2022, dans son espace dans le Marais. Cette journée d'ouverture commune des galeries d'art, invite le public dans un ambiance conviviale à découvrir les expositions phares de la rentrée.

L'exposition a pour but de rapprocher la production contemporaine de Nicolas Lefeuvre des Maîtres Modernes. Un discours commun empreint d'une audace, d'une recherche de libération du geste exprimé dans la fonction expressive et symbolique de la couleur, du rythme des formes. Geste comme acte réflexif à l'origine de l'œuvre, l'exposition invite à découvrir un dialogue sur l'abstraction et une expérience esthétique subtile.

The exhibition aims to bring the contemporary production of Nicolas Lefeuvre closer to the Modern Masters such as Masson and Matisse. A common discourse characterized by an audacity, a search for liberation of the gesture expressed in the symbolic function of the color, the rhythm of forms. The exhibition invites to discover a dialogue on abstraction and a subtle aesthetic experience.

1 Lucas Dvorak Fencers 2, 2015 - Photograph 23 3/5 × 31 1/2 in 60 × 80 cm Editions 2-7 of 7


JM Art Management present an exclusive online Artsy exhibition for Czech art and fashion photographer Lukas Dvorak. The show is replete with Dvorak's passionate, erotic, and intense photography.

Lukas Dvorak captured photos of the surrounding nature, considering it his best source of inspiration and contrast. Dvorak believes that women should be exposed in the same way as nature does, demonstrating how one might act without needing to put up a front. This thought serves as the return to the birth of Venus, a reference to the original woman.

Lukas combines his models' beautiful, feminine curves with an astonishing, raw, and untamed backgrounds by presenting them with breathtaking scenery. His scenes provide a sense of simplicity and purity through the interaction of nature and nudity.

The artist characterizes his style as straightforward. Primary, straight lines must control the three aspects of lighting, position, and facial expression. His works show little sign of the enormous effort frequently required to achieve the correct pose. As he noted in an interview, respecting the woman's beauty is the first thing to do to capture her in her most spectacular and finest form. The most crucial criterion for Dvorak is a natural appearance; he shows his images in a timeless, pure style, devoting himself to the female nude with poise and creativity. The models have a natural appearance and a strong sense of character.

Kevin Sabo - Maliboob, 2022 acrylic, pencil on canvas, 30 x 24 in.

group exhibition 10 September - 1 October 2022

Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Somebody, a figurative group exhibition curated by Dasha Matsuura. Each of the eight artists featured explore abstraction and stylization of the human form, depicting the physical and emotional within their subjects.

Capturing the essence of ourselves, peers and family have been at the root of art practices throughout history. From hyper-realism to abstracted forms, the artists highlighted in Somebody illustrate familial histories and memories, current internal states and hopes for the future. Grappling with identity, the inherent value of the subject and their presence within the painted space, each work moves beyond the physical body to unpack the human experience.

Utilizing their work to paint the reality they see or would like to see, the artists affirm and underscore the importance of representation or reflection of one's self in art. Painting is used as a means to record the influential and everyday, to allow reverence that you are someone worth documenting and inhabiting space. That you are Somebody.

Participating Artists:
Liz Flores | Lanise Howard | Kathryn Kampovsky | Hanna Lee Joshi | Marianna Olague | Kevin Sabo | Emma Steinkraus | Shingo Yamazaki

Opening Night Reception:
Saturday, September 10th
4pm to 7pm
