Gérard Charruau



biography under completion

At first sight, Gerard Charruau’s cityscapes seem to inherit art history as well as history of architecture and town planning. His pictorial work, although it takes roots in his many travels around the world, is not a documentary one, no more than a topographical or encyclopedic one. It’s not neither a photographic work that he would have translated straight out in pictorial words. Gérard Charruau 'builds' his landscape in an aesthetic gesture of subtleness by covering the canvas with a thin layer of organic paper that acts like a filter. This paper, obtained in Vietnam and whose function is initially unrefined, becomes here a height of refinement, blurring the vision like in haziness. Artist and nomad, Gerard Charruau is a more contemporary artist than he believes to be, in his nearly romantic way to invite us to “get lost in the city” with him. When not traveling, the artist lives and works in Paris.
