Galerie Richard

ACTUART article by Eric SIMON

Galerie Richard presents Shirley Kaneda’s fifth solo exhibition under the title Eccentric Pleasure. It consists of six paintings created in 2018 that were exhibited at The New York Studio School in 2022. Starting in 2018, Shirley Kaneda returned to the Post-Formalism for which she first became known. She abandons an abstract biomorphic aesthetic that she had developed by acquiring She is abandoning the abstract biomorphic aesthetic she developed when she acquired the rudiments of Photoshop in 2000, and which associated her with the painters who brought digital aesthetics and techniques to painting.

At first glance, one thinks of a classic abstract language of clearly identifiable geometric shapes. They are composed of verticals, horizontals and arcs of circles. These are forms without symmetrical repetition. Closer inspection reveals that while most of the shapes are painted in perfectly smooth monochrome, others are painted with deliberately visible brushstrokes. Despite appearances, these compositions are complex and unexpected. They possess that playful quality that is a common thread running through all Shirley Kaneda’s work.

Galerie Richard Paris is pleased to present Sven-Ole Frahm’s sixth solo exhibition in Paris, Back and Forth, from May 22 to June 15, 2024. Jean-Luc and Takako Richard have represented this German artist since 2007. Sven-Ole Frahm is a painter who, from his earliest works, integrated the sewing machine as a major instrument in his pictorial creations. He continues this process of appropriating techniques linked to canvas as fabric, which he continues to sew, cut and perforate, but now adds zippers. These become the central compositional element in his new works.

Galerie Richard represents Marc RENARD

Jean-Luc and Takako Richard are very pleased to announce that they represent Marc RENARD, born in Brussels in 1963.
His abstract canvases are noticeable for their harmonies of often very vivid colors. One then distinguishes several rhythms moving in space and finally one discovers their three-dimensionality by his superimpositions of pictorial layers.
Marc RENARD had a solo exhibition in 2020 at the Mark Rothko Art Center in Daugavpils, Latvia.
The Marc Minjauw Gallery represents the artist in Brussels since 2015.
