Blue Pruno Blue di Édouard Nardon, curata da Domenico de Chirico.
The Address Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by New York-based French visual artist Édouard Nardon, curated by Domenico de Chirico.
Nardon’s new body of work, composed of paintings and site-specific sculptures, explores notions of temporal perspective and confinement and charges matter with emotional significance and carefree irony.
Édouard Nardon (1978) is a French-born artist based in New York, working mostly with painting and sculpture
Nardon tends towards different subjects with the view to represent them in an unfixed way. His practice is informed by ideas of interpretation and subjectivity, appropriated by the viewer to invoke a set of very personal histories and memories.
Nardon’s paintings tend towards montage, in that one layer is imposed over another, what he thinks of as a “base” image: an initial semi-figurative form. He tries to be as detached as possible in working up the painting. He is interested in the act of moving away from logic and achieving a state in which unconscious gesture plays a role in shaping form.
His work is recognised with one voice for highly personal allegories in paintings and sculptures and it’s rife with clever twists and juxtapositions that invite multiple interpretations. As such, you could say that Nardon has an interest in, and an uneasy relationship with, the real. He wants his artwork to anticipate the act of non-literal interpretation on the part of others.
