Paper is often the first working support, light, without prior preparation, It allows artists to explore their ideas. These sketches, often of an rigorous execution, are like whispers to the realization of a more important work. But sometimes these are small masterpieces being sufficient to themselves.

In this collective exhibition, we have assembled works on mixed paper, various techniques such as gouache, oil pastel, casti-arti, china ink, acrylic, inkjet, charcoal or even folded paper. These works on paper are, for us, a bit like springtime whispers to better discover the different universes of our artists. Here's a quick biography of each one of them :

 ▼  Maurice Frydman

Born in Paris in 1928 to an immigrant family from Poland, Maurice Frydman lives and works in Brussels, Belgium.

Passionate about human anatomy, he dedicates his work to the theme of the couple and the child. In addition, he is haunted by the destructive potential of humanity, its barbarity and its crimes. Love and violence are two recurring themes that permeate his work, which is guided by his personal story and his deep memories bound to the Shoah.

The contemporary work of Maurice Frydman seems to maintain very little contact with his previous productions. The gap is wide between the figurative work of classical expression and the abstract work that he builds today from plastic film, a technique which he is the only one to use today.

 ▼  Shim Moon Pil

Shim Moon Pil was born in Daegu, South Korea, in 1958. He lives and works in Paris. His artistic approach is based on the alternation between, on one hand - the transparency, sharpness, the introduction of white linearity, the tint area, the colored lines and the plexiglas - and on the other hand the milky atmospheric presence of the white base: indistinct depth, distant and mysterious, which pulls the perception towards a recessed space.

Sometimes, irregularities in the lines are purposely preserved as to avoid an excessive mechanical approach of the composition. These lines, spaced out or close to each other, divide and modulate the tint block, introducing rhythm to the balances of colours and gaps.

 ▼  Namgoong Whan

He was born in 1975 in Seoul. He currently lives in Paris. Before coming to France, Namgoong Whan first took a training course at the university of Seoul’s School of Fine Arts. He then settled down in Paris and studied at the ENSBA, where he obtained his diploma in 2003.

His drawings, products of patience and concentration, are brought to life through a thick brush full of ink. The moment paper and water collide, the ink spreads; following the artist’s fast and precise gesture. Through a subtle use of blurs, Namgoong Whan succeeds in displaying a rare visual energy thus giving a spiritual dimension to his work.
