“The painting and afterward…”
The exhibition presents the artworks of three artists: David Apikian, Hervé Penhoat, and Wela. They use different material and techniques and draw their inspiration from different sources, but the art of each one of them interrogates the future of art, after the centuries of the domination of painting. They set out on an unexplored land, searching to overcome the gesture on a canvas, to go beyond the painting,
beyond the canvas.
David Apikian’s work has its roots in the Russian avant-garde and the Constructivist school, but also in Mondrian’s compositions. With the “City” series, David Apikian evolves from canvas to digital creation, taking a look at the city at an ultimate point where color, volume, movement, and sound reveal “the urban metamorphosis of the post-industrial era”.
