  • About the artwork

    Les toiles de Ralph Resch ont le goût de l’informel et le caractère puissant de l’abstraction. Ce métissage résulte d’un cheminement vers le non figuratif, après avoir esquissé la réalité des années 90. De l’art informel se dégage la force d’un acte, celui de peindre, en écho à l’expressionnisme abstrait de Mark Rothko dans l’accord et l’équilibre des tons.

    L’absence de mimesis sonne le retour aux sources de la création : le pigment, la toile et le rapport entre l’artiste et ses outils. La simplicité émergeante de l’univers de Ralph Resch n’est qu’apparente. La complexité de son œuvre ne s’exhibe pas, elle est latente. Le peintre travaille la matière plastique en combinant la gouache, l’huile, la craie, l’encre à du sable, de la colle ou de la terre. S’opère ensuite un corps à corps avec le support : grattages, étirements de la pâte ou traitements quasi-abrasifs sont autant d’interventions qui concourent à l’alchimie d’une harmonie. La frontière entre réel et irréel devient alors plus flou, moins « évidente ». Les jeux de matières, l’agencement des textures et des couleurs réveillent des suggestions et des analogies avec un sujet figuratif, qui se renforcent lorsqu’on prend connaissance du titre attribué : Torrent, Carte au trésor ou Horizon.

    D’une certaine façon, c’est la question des rapports entre la représentation physique/plastique et psychique/informelle qui émerge des grandes toiles de Ralph Resch.

    Nourrie de ses nombreux voyages et expositions en Europe et jusqu'au Moyen-Orient sa peinture s'inspire de De Staël, de Rothko et Tapies.

Ralph Resch

Born in: 1965


Emergent Artist

Ralph Resch is a French painter born in 1965 in Mulhouse. Self-taught, it was in 1983 that he started practicing painting, inspired by his life of night owl, in jazz clubs and cafes.

In 1985 he became a textile designer at Texunion and attended evening classes at the School of Fine Arts of Mulhouse. In 1992 he joined the textile designer studio Paul Hargittai (Hungarian painter and designer) at Rue de la Paix, in Paris. In 1994, influenced by his numerous trips to Africa his painting turned towards abstraction and warm colors. At the same time, he started working on the masks of the Fang ethnic group, and on protraits of Africans.

In 1995 he opened his own workshop at Quai de la gare in Paris. He painted in incresingly large formats and started using a mixed technique (gouache-oil-ink-chalk) made of colors and of large flat areas where the figurative is structured in a way that it gives freedom to the materials's effects (sand, glue, clay).

In the 2000s, he was invited by the French Cultural Center in Jordan, and exhibited his paintings at the "Royal Gallery of Jordan". He participared in the open doors of the Atelier d'Artistes in Montreuil, and exhibits his work in the South of France, Luxembourg, and regularly in Paris.
