Presentation
Olivier Catté (born in 1957) is a French artist who lives and works in Rouen.

A unique technique

Recycled cardboard fascinates Olivier Catté: scrap from our consumerist society, a makeshift home for the poor, cardboard is a ubiquitous symbol of the absurdity of modern society, as well as a wonderful material for visual expression. There is not a single collage in his technique: the volume comes in negative, within the thickness of one piece of cardboard. Playing on the roughness and the life behind the cardboard, he applies black streaks of paint in dappled areas and then peels it off. This work of deconstruction produces fascinating volume effects, leaves room to interesting accidents and paves the way for an artwork of our times.

Harmonious Society

In May 2016, Olivier Catté was invited to an artist residency in Zunyi. In the heart of the Chinese mountains, he strongly felt the contrast between western linear perspective - which sees the landscape from the Human’s point of view - and Chinese landscape tradition, where the Human is just part of a moving and organic whole. It brought powerful curves, lyricism and a touching vital breath to his artworks.

This is his 7th soloshow at the gallery.
