Almine Rech Brussels is pleased to announce The Wall: Claire Decet, Guillaume Gelot and Jean-Baptiste Bernadet. It will be Decet and Gelot first collaboration with thegallery
'Champagne Palette Feelings' presents works by Jean-Baptiste Bernadet, Claire Decet, and Guillaume Gelot in four sections. These artists cover the entire spectrum ranging from figuration to abstraction, and fifteen paintings will be shown sequentially in groups.
Together, these three contemporary artists show the full scope of possibilities that exist between what is commonly called abstraction and figuration — easy, convenient terms which, as we see here, do not serve to describe exactly what we are looking at. Meticulous painting of still lifes, which, by its obsession and desire to be faithful to the real becomes objective and surreal, and which is displayed alongside the palettes used to produce it. Geometrical painting, with a mechanical appearance, whose frontal approach, according to the artist, must be light and calm like that of a cat, a quality that can also be applied to its creation and which makes it, in fact, very human. Atmospheric painting, vague and blurry, which manifests a multitude of images resembling memories, both intense and elusive.
