Renaud Bargues

Born in: 1980


Renaud Bargues was born in 1980 in Paris. He lives and works in Paris.

His work on paper is an automatic act. He produces series in India ink and keeps, in most cases, the same format. His drawings are black and white, and generally the lines are black on a white background. He sometimes creates the negative of this format: black is dominant and strengthens the mystical, severe and deep effect of the work. Renaud is not afraid of the image, he assumes it and denounces it. Sometimes he includes a few words in English or in French in order to address to as many people as possible, creating a certain interactivity with the viewer.

His short phrases reshape reality and use words as clues for the reading his work. Here, drawing is a means of expression for the artist, allowing him not to isolate himself.

He uses numerous techniques: on canvas, the artist plays between the contrast of black lines and color. He uses watercolor and felt that he applies on canvas as drippings that are more or less controllable with the help of water spray. We can look for e certain academicism in his gestures on canvas and the intervention of a technique. The role of the color is not the classic one, it does not just fill the form: on the contrary, colors seem to be applied in order to veil or blur the original drawing like a screen.
