(drawings).

An exhibition about “Abstract”, but not only that

Indeed, if some works represent a distortion of reality, which is one of the characteristics of abstract art, the artists do it in moderation, offering beautiful works that are almost decipherable, and there is a real harmony in this exhibition.

Brestoise Marie Roignant, a fan of the American patchwork star Gwen Marston, presents large works whose pieces of fabric are applied and sewn together with a sewing machine: “My work is improvised: I have the fabric and I come to the project,” she explains. .

Jean-Pierre Moreau, a retired art teacher, dressed the windows and walls with transparent curtains, where he applied harmonious colors: jellyfish, “droplets”. His son Guillaume offers drawings with eye-pleasing shapes that evolve in density “according to the emotion of the moment,” says the artist.
