Lumen Travo,Art Language

Lumen Travo Gallery is delighted to present 

Art Language, a solo show by Franck Bragigand, which will simultaneously be presented at the Lloyd Hotel. This new work is his most recent statement about Art and Painting. His process has been entirely secret and he emphasizes his personal immersion in research and long study in order to achieve what he believes is a new manner of Painting and representing the world. The new system he highlights is based only on painted circles connecting colors, words and information. This enables him to paint any time, any civilization, any history and any notion. He wants to show progress and evolution of concepts though paintings. He calls it Paradigm Painting using Realms and not Reality anymore, as was seen in his earlier work. The result is an astonishing series of colored and written circles, which create language in itself. Bragigand describes Art Language as a virtual de-construction of the power of knowledge.
These images are showing the qualities of a true painter and colourist and tell us something about the world and it’s history. Bragigand’s language of expression is truly original.

Franck Bragigand’s biography
For more than ten years, Franck Bragigand has been developing a body of works consisting of ‘painting subjects’, which have resulted in a collection of works. He has been involved in many fields like art, design, industry, men craft, ‘social-area’, architecture, museums, public spaces and institutions, private galleries. He has been working over 30 years in this area and has exhibited all around the world. His approach to Painting has been influenced by all kinds of expressions, which this medium has to offer, from architecture to objects. Bragigand combines all his production into special ‘Systems’, making him a plenty conceptual artist. He has realized over 200 projects and maybe 10000 original paintings. Soon he will present this prolific production in his monograph called: ‘The Last Painting Theory’, with contributions from six international authors, published by Jap Sam Books. (288 color pages)
