Michelangelo BASTIANI

Biography :
Born in 1960 in Lourdes, France Lives and works in Paris As a sculptor, Corda is sensitive to color. He not only uses the most diverse patinas, but he also applies chrome, silver, gilding and paint to his bronzes. Starting from the same color sensitivity, Corda has gone on to other materials than bronze. He has cast sculptures in aluminum and iron. And as he regularly spends time in the Italian Pietrasanta, he also works in marble and terra cotta. It is astonishing to see how this wizard commands the diverse techniques necessary for the varied material applications. But the material experiments lead back to Corda’s central theme: to portray people in the most diverse roles, environments, and situations. Corda’s expressiveness is too strong for just one material. He will redo his bronze bust of an Asian girl in ceramic, because it will let him illuminate aspects of her essence that remain hidden in bronze. A white marble fist, in positive and negative form, has something gentle, while an aluminum male torso takes on an almost divine radiance.

. Micka

Fernando PORRAS


Biography :
Son Seock was born in South Korea in 1955 and has lived and worked in France since 1995. His works belong to the realm of the visual senses: if we shift our point of view, we can experience the color changing of his paintings like the skin of a chameleon. The images disappear according to our own movement, or we even have the illusion that they are escaping from the picture-plane realm and floating in mid-air. The viewer becomes part of the artwork, enjoying the magical effects created by the relations between the image and the background. These changes of color and disappearance of images according to the movement of the eyes are comparable to the technique of Rayogram in photography. The picture-plane, covered with numerous dots to resemble a rough cement surface, stimulates the viewer’s eyes with tactile experiences. The multiple layers of small paint lumps are a demonstration of the devotion of the artist to his work. He transcends the traditional painting technique and develops new methods, trying to keep the distance from a world increasingly focused on digital media and photography. The lines that divide the picture vertically create the illusion: they are not placed randomly but are the result of mathematical calculations and logical rules. The subject matters, such as elephants and ceramics, are in this way minimized. Son Seock does not represent them for the sake of narration, but he simply places them on the picture-plane as anonymous objects. Paradoxically, such minimization of narrative contents does not mean an absence of meaning; on the contrary it allows the viewer to concentrate on the image, fascinated by the abundance of aesthetic meaning. The tactile works of Son Seock reveal in fact the immaterial qualities of objects. By establishing a relationship between the images and the tactile background, the artist suggests his attempt to overturn logic. As the vase disappears according to the movement, the viewer notices the chaos of perception a Exhibition :

Other Artists represented by the Gallery:

Biography : Yves Hayat was born in Egypt. There, most likely, were born his first aesthetic sensibility, his first needs for compliance, his first denials. In 1956, he discovered France and uprooting. During five years, he attended the National School of Arts in Nice. In 1973, Yves Hayat chooses advertising - a creative trade in full effervescence. He will later retain from this creative profession his fascination for images and the importance of their message. Those years enabled him to discover new technologies and to master his technics. In 1990, Hayat returns to art and rediscovers the old masters. While working as an advertising designer he photographs people, the streets, museum paintings and recuperates magazine and web images which are carefully classified. Hayat is a perfect example of his time: an open mind on society, its streets, its media, its internet.
