Clément BAGOT

Had an interesting day at the  DRAWING NOW in paris (artistic director : Mr Philp Piguet )

The official award winner for 2012 is Mr. Clément BAGOT  - congratulation!
Personally, i think the uncrowned prince of the salon throughout the last three years is Thomas Muller, i admire his work.

it was fascinating to note how works by different artists converse.
Thomas vinson - frank badur, Corinne Laroche - Pietra bloch,  Károly Keserü - Lucie Beppler, German Stegmaier - Hanns Schimansky  ( what a beautiful collection of works )

not to suggest the works are similar, but that the wide range of generations and mediums, creates a context in which each proposition gains in clarity and results in a concentrated dose of high quality drawings.

Iannis Xenakis

Iannis Xenakis: Composer, Architect, Visionary explores the fundamental role of drawing in the work of Greek avant-garde composer Iannis Xenakis (1922–2001). A leading figure in twentieth century music, Xenakis was trained as a civil engineer, then became an architect and developed revolutionary designs while working with Le Corbusier. Comprised of nearly 100 documents created between 1953 and 1984, this is the first North American exhibition dedicated to Xenakis’s original works on paper. Included are rarely-seen hand-rendered scores, architectural drawings, conceptual renderings, pre-compositional sketches, and graphic scores. Iannis Xenakis: Composer, Architect, Visionary is co-curated by Xenakis scholar Sharon Kanach and critic Carey Lovelace and will travel to the Canadian Centre for Architecture (June 17 – October 17, 2010) and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (November 7, 2010 – February 13, 2011).

Andrew Masullo

Are there colors you don't like or colors you find hard to use?
That's not my kind of question.

How do you decide on the size of a painting, especially the smaller ones?
Have you noticed that painters with little to say often choose the largest canvases on which to say it?

What comes to you first, color or shape?
The egg.
