Fondation CAB is pleased to invite you to visit the studio of our 15th artist in residence Nicolas Chardon (b. in 1974, Clamart, France). Grids & Waffles is the new group of paintings he made these months in the studio of Fondation CAB in Brussels. We are happy to share it with you on Saturday Oct. 16th, from 12 to 6 pm.
Nicolas is a painter who introduces reality and life into abstract supremacist motifs, from which he humorously emancipates himself through the medium. The place of his painting is thepainting itselfand his work is based first of all on the observation of what constitutes him materially; the frame and the canvas attached to it. But it is a particular canvas, trivial fabrics squared and straight at the outset which undergo the deformations linked to the tension on the frames. The abstract shapes then painted take their distorted place.The challenge of Nicolas Chardon’s painting is to reveal the narrative, disorder and imperfection of abstraction.
