Claude Viallat, Et Pourtant Si…
For the first time, Le Carré d’Art in Nîmes, Viallat’s birthplace, presents an exhibition dedicated to this artist, founder of the Support/Surface movement. The exhibition focuses on recent works by Viallat, taken directly from the artist’s studio. Paintings, sculptures and assemblages are presented to demonstrate the talent of this exceptional colorist.
A founding member of the Supports/Surfaces group and historic figure of French abstract art, Viallat is tirelessly developing a body of work which is at once instantly recognisable and constantly on the move. In addition to his paintings, the exhibition will feature numerous objects, somewhere between sculpture and fortuitous assemblage that are always at once precariously balanced and consummately elegant. Their playful simplicity dialogues constantly with the intense formal and chromatic pleasures of his painting.
