Gremillion & Co. Fine Art, Inc. presents Christian Renonciat: "Caresses" opening reception
Gremillion & Co. Fine Art, Inc. hosts "Caresses," an exhibition of sculpture by French artist Christian Renonciat.
Art Historian Jean-Luc Chalumeau writes, “When this exceptional sculptor ‘executes’ a piece, must we ask what came before the work at hand? Was there an aesthetic object present in the artist’s imagination before it took form in the real world? The question, I believe, is of some importance, and we are fortunate that the artist has provided some explanations in this regard: Without mediation? Of course not: the wood is the medium, the mediator, the corporeal contact point that shapes the figure in the world. Wood is the joker, a trump card that is the image of the body in the world, a connection, a meeting point, a way to become one with the game; in a word, feeling. We are given to understand that this artist, like all authentic creators, does not merely observe, but feels from within. At the same time he also experiences the world and leaves room for the physical experiences of the body in a way that specifically does not rely on language."
After the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view until November 25.
