PASSE DE 2

From 13 June to 13 July 2013

Galerie Bertrand Gillig

Galerie Bertrand Gillig

Strasbourg - France

Presentation

The Betrand Gillig Gallery suggests a meeting between two painters, both based in the West of France: Patrick Cornillet, from Nantes, and Stéphane Joannes, from l’Île de Ré. They deal with the notion of time passing, how the previous years have changed things, and talk about abandonment.

Stéphane Joannes’s bluntly realistic tankers are nonetheless of a rare poetry, placed on their central horizon, between the calm sea traversed by drips evoking the dirty shell and the calm sky, painted in monochrome with the occasional suggestion of a few clouds. They seem to be in decay, ghost vessels or maybe old boats still in activity? Stéphane Joannes will also present a series of empty and uncluttered marine landscapes, as well as two paintings of nudes.

As for Patrick Cornillet’s paintings, they concern chosen parts of cold and somber pieces of concrete-based architecture. Painted on a white background, they are taken away from their context. They are empty of human presence, probably waiting to be inhabited (again?) or at least (re-) used.
