Geometry under tension

Exceeding the strict boundaries of geometry. Always faithful to the square, Gaël Bourmaud also marks a preference for the triangle whose limits he explores in new ways. He stretches the margins. Visual ambivalences of achievements that are the negative equivalent of those that preceded them. Receptacle of a colored energy. Flight lines extending contours without colors: now white, they fade, are no longer border and merge into space. Habits foiled. Dilemma: affirmed materiality of a work whose presence is invalidated by the same plastic processes it selves. Ambivalence that makes us aware of the fragility of our certainties.

Henri Prosi (1936 - 2010)

The complexity of the world Translated

Henri Prosi always found the perfect conjugation of full and empty, presence or absence. His work follows a strong concrete combinatorial abstraction, a scheme with the three primary colors plus black and white and with the accentuation of lines, bands, squares or rectangles. The works are based on movement,  asymmetry and fragmentation and are neutral without any kind of anecdotal and without any reference to any master. Henri Prosi plays with space and relief, his works are similar to syncopation in jazz. Henri was an ardent defender of geometric abstraction. For example, from 1984 he took part in the international show of abstract artists "Réalités Nouvelles" in Paris and in 2000 became vice-chairman of this event.
