Ground Effect

Paris - France

Substrat - Olivier Swiz - Solo Show

Paris From January 23, 2021 to February 6, 2021

Presentation
Ground Effect is pleased to present "Substrats", his first solo exhibition at the gallery.

Self-taught artist, Swiz first came to painting through graffiti in the 2000s. Passionate spectator of changes in his environment, it is first in abandoned industrial zones that his forms were born and unfolded. .

The different structures and configurations of the place of his intervention fed his work, bringing him constraints to which his practice subjected.

In his studio practice initiated in 2010, if the artist has put aside the representation of letters, he has kept the constituent elements, the initial alphabet becoming a repertoire of malleable forms allowing him to invest in the chosen medium.
From his urban environment, he has extracted architectural structures, which he deconstructs to better integrate them into his visual language.
Like an urban planner, he deploys new imaginary spaces, constructs territories with fragmented volumes, cut by radical lines.
Through subtle glazes, he engages in a real construction game, partially covering areas, revealing and then concealing parts of his work to better invite the viewer to get lost.

Each piece presented here can then be seen as a track, part of an imaginary plan to be deciphered.
