As the title suggests it, the show “Papiers” is dedicated to a selection of works on paper by some artists of the gallery, such as :
Cyrille André was born in 1972 in Grenoble. Using primitive and rough shapes in his monumental sculptures, and concise and steady lines in his drawings, he always succeeds in getting the expressions he wants to.
Erik Bulatov counts among the most important contemporary artists. Born in 1933 in Sverdlovsk, lives and works in Paris. The broad variety of the subjects he approaches in his works is always treated with the same and specific care. The high skill of the artist is specially demonstrated in his drawings
Marcello Cinque, painter, sculptor and engraver, was born in 1968 in Naples. He practices an art where he develops experimentation about the link between material, shapes and the feelings they provoke in those who look at them. Abstract or figurative, the organic elements can be found in all his works.
Ra’anan Levy was born in 1954 in Jerusalem. In the nudes, studio and interior views he depicts, the artist perfectly captures the daily poetry. No matter the medium he uses, painting, charcoal, engraving, he always drags us into the intimacy of a space or a situation
