GALERIE ISABELLE GOUNOD

PARIS — FRANCE

 
 
Created in 2004, the Isabelle Gounod gallery presents emergent and outstanding artists from the french and international scene.
 
Its artistic program is wide open to different media (painting, drawing, photography, video, installations and perfor- mances). The Gallery is recognised for its commitment and support towards artists whose concern is as much in writing, langage or representation of the body into space.
 
Those last few years, the gallery was well known for her discovery and support of young artists who are now fully recognised on the french and international artistic market and entered private and public art collections such as : Centre Georges Pompidou, Société Générale Collection, CNAP, FMAC, Frac Auvergne, Frac PACA, Frac Haute-Nor- mandie, Frac Basse-Normandie, MoMA (NYC), LACMA (USA), Houston Fine Arts Museum, Collection François Pinault, Collection Pernod-Ricard, etc.

Glen Baxter – Solo Show

Well known for his surealistic and ab- surd drawings, Glenn Baxter discover
s surealism and dadaïsm with the works of Chirico, Picabia, Magritte, Ernst, Beckett, Roussel… Playing on words and images Glen Baxter thus develops his irony and incongruous sense of humour and adds funny com- ments to his images, in order to create a gap between text and image. The most funny situations being then rela- ted to seriously ridiculous text.

«Les surréalistes appelaient ça le ‘frisson’ [en français dans le texte], cette impression soudain que le sol se dérobe, qu’on est allé trop vite,que l’on
s’est trompé (…) C’est une sensation fugitive, mais très forte, comme si l’esprit perdait momentanément l’équilibre. Exactement ce que j’essaie de faire éprouver à ceux qui regardent mes dessins. J’ai toujours adoré ces accrocs dans la réalité, ces légers vertiges.»

Stéphane Jarno, «Les dadas du Colonel», Télérama n° 3077, 2009
