Frédéric BOUFFANDEAU: Paintings, sculptures, neon and paper
Frédéric Bouffandeau's work is inscribed under the sign of a singular and imperfect form that he calls the "matrix". As much akin to a human cell as to a plant and floral figure, it is alive, supple, sensual and carries a certain form of poetry.
"The stakes of the work are to explore painting and space. The organic, the architecture are the elements that form the basis of my reflections. The mediums used are drawing, painting, volume, light and moving images. I look for the tensions that can arise from the reduction of means, trying to bring the mediums I use as close as possible to the space they occupy. »
Sometimes full, sometimes hollowed out, or opaque, Frédéric Bouffandeau constructs and deconstructs this form with the help of paintings, drawings, neon lights, aluminium sculptures... The artist moves from one medium to another on the wall as well as in space. Each created piece enriches the next one, associates itself to the existing works, while keeping its elementary and singular character.
