Christian Bonnefoi - ludos récents
Christian Bonnefoi's works combine gesture and line, composition and lyricism, surface and depth. For him, the work becomes the place where the pictorial gesture and the space of painting intersect. His paintings on canvas or paper, show interlacing lines and colours that do not try to refer to an external world: everything happens on the plane of the painting.
His wall collages called "Ludos" enrich, develop and renew these problems: the cutting and superimposing of coloured areas, the inlaying of materials or the play of drawing - sometimes complementary, sometimes not - in relation to the painting result in an image that seems both simpler, more immediate to read, and at the same time as enriched, the intensity of each of the elements being reinforced.
