Alberta Pane gallery, Paris
Alberta Pane gallery energetically supports contemporary art and artists who use differents mediums. The two artists presented for Drawing Now Paris are Florence Girardeau in a one-man-show with a series of abstract drawings playing with continuity and discontinuity, detail and whole, expectation and shifts. João Vilhena through his curious and absurd drawings, looks to call out to the observer, by utilizing the same genre of trompe-l’œil and by the choice of titles used in communication with the works.
Bertrand Grimont gallery, Paris
Patrick Bernatchez’s works, by their hybrid form, cause confusion. Specially interested by the notion of cycle, the artist’s develops a concept — here the metamorphosis — through as different series as differents mediums.
Van Der Stegen gallery
Allyson Mellberg was born in 1977 and lives in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA. She makes drawings, paintings, silk screens, and etchings of beautifully deformed and yet playful characters who carry a proud demeanor in their abnormalities. Furry creatures climb on the heads of women and wrap their tails around mustachioed boys. Her work is inspired by the daily misuse of chemicals in our society and in keeping with her awarness uses nontoxic and often homemade materials such as walnut ink and egg tempera.
And the galleries: Ladiray Londres, Caroline Vachet, Lyon and Guest Room / contemporary Art, Bruxelles, and Marie Cini, Paris.
