Mazel Gallery – 18 of June to the tenth of July
For the last show of the season, Mazel Gallery is organizing a group clash with some “Guests” artists.
This selection of artists as diverse in their origins (France, Belgium, Korea, Slovakia) by their techniques (oil on wood  firecrackers sculptures, photographs, cloth copper, ceramics …) The name “Artifices” has emerged fairly quickly.
Indeed, “Artifices” with an “S” is needed in all sense of the term because it is both a creative explosion, perfectly embodied by the sculptures of firecrackers (Fireworks in French is “Feux d’artifices”) of Katarina Kudelova and an explosion of colors by Philippe Andrieu and  his “Neo-Fauve” palette.
But “Artifices” should be also seen as an illusion and an embellishment of reality. Thus Michel Fraile revives those stuffed animals scattered through the city while bringing us to reflect on the place of man on our little planet. Hwang Hosup
meanwhile combines the sacred image of Buddha to western eroticism in a subtle play of transparency between fabric printed pictures and transparent copper surfaces.
For its part Derenne Gregory manages to make “beautiful” the TV trays and feed our imagination Yet so often constrained by the universe to the ultra-formatted pursuit of perpetual ratings.
Finally Jimmy Bock plays both the impossible movement of buildings and the intensification of “sub colors “that the explosion of color with the New York Buzz result of the alchemy between  photographic overlays and  painting projection inspired by the master of “dripping” Jackson Pollock.    Map
