Biography

Emmanuel Régent develops a work that is composed as well with classical techniques as with cutting-edge technological protocols. Known for his drawings, deliberately incomplete and always made with black and fine felt, the artist also develops a sculptural and pictorial practice. His canvases, titled Nebulae, are made up of different layers of monochrome paintings that he sanded down in places to reveal the hidden colors. He multiplies the possibilities of a variable geometry production around the readily opposed concepts of absence, erasure, proliferation and recovery. Emmanuel Régent's work plays on discretion and effacement and invariably prefers little to excess. This bias allows him to create a discreet art that fits the world without excess. Emmanuel Régent thus proposes "gaps" to be completed by looking: for him it is a question of "building open spaces of projections, spaces of assumptions, wanderings, dispersions ...", of imposing interstices, rhythms like pauses against shortness of breath 7.
