Xavier Veilhan - The Drawing Center - Today's Specials
|Author||Xavier Veilhan ; Franck Gautherot|
|Publisher||Les Presses Du Reel|
In March 2020, Parisian artist Xavier Veilhan started making drawings on a daily basis with a ruler and compass. His interest in modernity is clearly visible in the references to Futurism and Op art in this series of kinetic images on paper, a collection of moments when styles, explicit or implicit references, geometrical figures, bold straight lines, and saturated colours dance across the page. The drawings are presented in a curated mode both (approximately) chronological and (visually, rhythmically) serial, strongly graphic but at the same time gathered under the overarching theme of an artist’s deep dive exploration of other modes of expression during the pandemic lockdown.
