Louis GRANET

Louis Granet‘s work is based on the links between comic strip and painting. The artist uses the comics’ techniques and codes to apply them to several mediums. Signs, lines and forms represent the starting point of his esthetic research. The re-appropriation of images that he superimposes tends to disorientate the public. The spectator is facing abstract forms and representational images at the same time. Nevertheless, the blurred and one-sidedly explicit pictorial research of Louis Granet leaves an important place to the observer’s imagination. The diverse forms, materials and perspectives create compositions in several strata which suggest several key to understanding.

I decided to realize very quickly, instinctively a diptych which “tells” my first days of residency. The dilapidated salmon pink walls, the brusque calligraphies and the profusion of handwritten store’s signs echo this sudden lived reality, when I walked in Marrakech. This two paintings reply to a perception, a first impression and create a form of reality, in a drew joint, abstract as well as figurative.
