The Bertrand Grimont Gallery exhibits Grégory Derenne’s new paintings. On that occasion, the artist will be present and art critique Hector Obalk will do a presentation.

“I concede that Derenne doesn’t care about his subject, and I concede that his paintings of the Métro don’t bear the mark of a social message and that his paintings of churches don’t bear that of religious fervor. But still, his painting of the Madeleine metro station is as magnificent as his church interiors : a magnificence without irony, pathos or frigidity, where sincere paradoxes emerge. The modern view of a church of the past and the almost religious vision of an escalator in the metro — paradoxes that I enjoy so much.”
