Gaël Davrinche at Gallery Magda Danysz in Paris until june 16th

I must say Gaël is one of my favorite figurative  artist in contemporary painting today for his knowledge of art history and his quality of painting : he’s such a great colorist with quite uneasy subject, avoiding always decorative or easy seduction . No trap, just Art !

     

My favorite series in this exhibition are the flowers, we could even say “Portaits of flowers” :  they have such a presence while fading away in a slow motion movement that looks like an elegant choreography, about to desappear in a sudden gust of wind…we can immediatly see how gorgeous they were during their splendour, nevertheless they keep in the degeneration process, thanks to a subtle richness of multiple hues, their past beauty.

Who’s afraid of Mona Lisa ?

Not Gaël for sure ! he dared to pay ironic tributes (that demonstrates actually his devotion to old masters ) to this iconic lady, echoing itself another famous irreverent hommage by Marcel Duchamp.
