À l'abri

Online Viewing Room

September 23 – October 14

For Pierre Alechinsky, an old piece of paper covered with printed or handwritten signs is always a stimulating starting point for the left hand that holds the paintbrush and for the mind that accompanies it. Last spring, confined to his studio in Bougival, the artist came across a scrap of stamped paper from 18th or 19th century Spain, a fiscal receipt that was invented there and no longer exists in our era. The superb seal that dominates the paper appears like a siren call for the wandering paintbrush, suddenly becoming a head, an eye, an astral body…the cursive glosses that scatter the page are crying out to be covered, or remain visible. And that is how this series “À l’abri” was formed, shown here for the very first time by Galerie Lelong & Co.
