Anónimo

February 22 – April 2, 2017

For the new edition of FACBA17 (Festival de Artes Contemporáneas), María Dávila was selected to work on a project based on the collection of the University of Granada. After having chosen an anonymous family album from 40’s-60’s, she realized a series of drawings and paintings which explores the boundaries between photographic reproduction and artwork, reality and fiction.

Dramatis personae

Jean-Marie Oger is very pleased to now represent Spanish artist María Dávila (b.1990).

 

María Dávila works by series, each one is the result of a meticulous research based on photographic or cinematographic material: family archives, still from movies or documentary films. By the appropriation of other visual languages, she explores the limits of the visible and the boundaries between fiction and reality.

The gesture of mind

The verb faire (to do) + s has become for me not only the title of this exhibition but also a long-term project. My wish was to deal with technique and gesture without which nothing is possible. Gesture that enables to shape the thaught of a moment or the thaught of a life. Gesture that makes things happen even without saying a word.

Tables et festins. L'hospitalité dans la peinture flamande et hollandaise du XVIIe siècle… et la bande dessinée

November 27, 2015 - February 27, 2016

Tables and feasts show the pleasure of spiritual or epicurean sharing. A surprising and festive meeting between Old Master paintings and comics, motivated by the desire to compare two “storyteller” arts.

Momentos Íntimos

November 25 – December 18, 2015

Sergio Ceccotti is for many years a reference point for Italian figurative painting. From the "metaphysical tradition" of the early 20th century, he is now an "avant-garde" at the threshold of the 21st century. In the works displayed in this exhibition curated by Massimo Scaringella, the artist expresses his need to enter, almost always furtively, in "intimate moments" of our daily reality.

The Big Blow

Jean-Marie Oger is proud to represent now Dutch artist Demiak (b. 1967).

 

Pseudonym of Maarten Demmink, Demiak paints landscapes. From his early works to his most recent series, his art oscillates from heavenly to post-apocalyptic pictures or objects in different mediums: paintings, mural wood sculptures, mixed media and staged photographs.

A kindly macho

September 25 - October 31, 2014

I have not had any difficulty to get interested in women of my time. It happens naturally. Of course, some of them have seemed to me quite irritating. It’s inevitable. But on the whole, my opinion is quite positive. I am what might be called a kindly macho.

Lectures interrompues

March 13 - May 10, 2014

The work of Francine Van Hove allegorizes the everyday life: the instant becomes definitive and the meaning of anecdotal grows a little. She stages young women in closed interiors; a kind of “home” which would be so enclosed that the probability of entering would be non-existent. In a safe place, unconscious or unconcerned by their own beauty, they let themselves go to laziness or devote themselves to immobile pleasures: reading, having tea, being immersed in reflection. Moments extracted from the passage of time, recalled here by a still-life, there by the endless questioning of a mirror.

Publication of his second novel : Précipitation en milieu acide

Pierre is forty-or-so, weary and more and more circumspect about the vacuity of his everyday life: his wife Béné who devotes herself to coaching, his job of consultant in the process of becoming external collaborator at Right-In-The-Middle-Consulting, the Pongibauds who come to dinner three times a week, the pike for New Year's Eve, holidays in Villefranche-de-Rouergue, in short a deep boredom.

Histoires sans histoire

September 19 - 21, 2013

Sergio Ceccotti likes the long urban walks off the beaten track, preferably on Sunday when offices and shops are closed, devoid of their function and of the human bustle. In the course of his wanderings, he finds the settings, like a moviemaker in scouting, in which he dramatizes his stories of everyday life, anecdotal and harmless in appearance. Because the simple evidence of the narrative weft is disturbed by the incongruous presence of a common object or by the coexistence of secondary plots.

Rêve chinois

April 18 - 20, 2013

IIt was after a visit to an exhibition at the Louvre on the French and Chinese imperial courts in the eighteenth century that I started this series.

 

II was particularly struck by the portraits of the emperor Qianlong (and later by those of his wife the empress Xiao Xian) painted by the jesuit Giuseppe Castiglione. These were frontal portraits with no modelling or chiaroscuro, which the emperor thought made his face look dirty, combined with the attention to detail and fabric typical of renaissance painting. There were also an impressive series of portraits of the horses that the emperor had received as gifts.

Red

A multitude of references, a rush of words, often troubling works of art… Red unleashes passion. Why expect otherwise? Red evokes something out of the ordinary.

Publication of his novel : 121 curriculum vitae pour un tombeau

During a car ride with his ill mother, Pierre, an artist always complaining, has an idea. That day, he decides to begin at last something serious:  to paint a cycle of 121 portraits of women and men of his time, each one represented by a kind of CV; a “tombeau”, in the musical sense of the word, is a solemn tribute to living or dead people.

Matins

March 24 - May 21, 2011

This exposition covers her work produced from 2009-2011. In keeping with her former work, there are several paintings of sleepers. The other figures who are awake give the impression of desiring to prolong the contentment they had known during their "deep sleep." They linger in bed with a book or occupy themselves with television while drinking their coffee or tea in the morning. They are not manifestly driven to prepare themselves to go out and confront the outside world. Each live solely in this privileged and psychologically timeless moment. All is simple and intimate once more.

October 14 - December 4, 2010

French painter, Monique de Roux has lived for a long time in Panama; the memory of this stay still impregnates her works. The luxuriance of these landscapes drenched with light is the equatorial backdrop of her timeless visions of this strange eldorado.

Music for pleasure

October 17 - November 28, 2009

British painter born in 1964, Ray Richardson presents his recent paintings at the Alain Blondel gallery for the first time for six years. The title of this exhibition, “Music for pleasure”, is an ironic reference to some “easy listening” music of the 1970’s. It is a way of reminding that painting is a visual pleasure but it must also provokes reactions, emotions and a reflexion about ourselves.

Icons and other recreations

March 15 - May 17, 2008

Icons and other recreations” express Michael Bastow’s fascination for female bodies; these women he creates with oil pastel on raw paper that appears hot and crumpled, just like sheets after lovemaking.
