Gérard Escougnou

Born in 1948 - France


What is striking in Gérard Escougnou’s work, is the energy of the forms and contrasts given by the alchemy of materials. He transforms ink chemically, using various substances to obtain a tarlike effect, full of vibrations.

The recent addition of white, like a zone of silence, invites us to listen to the chaotic music of the stirred colors. We are seized by the symphony of the curves. The perilous exercise of man’s interior landscape, nourished by very personal creative impulses, gives rise to a legitimate and intimate reflection on strength and fragility.

Gérard Escougnou was a laureate of the Fondation Colas in 2011.
