MATERIAL LIGHT SHOWS
The paintings of Georges Meurant are labyrinths, mazes within which our gaze is lost.
The aesthetician Jean Guiraud coined the term 'figural induction' to designate the dynamic operative in the pictorial field, between the rectangular shapes and the bright colors laid in flat areas. Despite the stability provided by the compositions' geometric structure, it is indeed the notion of movement that first comes to the mind of the viewer. Movement of the mind and of the eye, which makes and breaks an infinity of combinations of color. But also movement of the color itself, seemingly never satisfied with the place allocated to it by the painter. "A signal attracts the eye, a configuration stands out for a moment. Soon other combinations supplant it, and then still others, ongoing forever. The more quickly I act, the more these appearances and disappearances unfold."
