On the occasion of a common preview in the galleries of the Haut Marais, the gallery baudoin lebon reveals two unreleased series of Piotr Klemensiewicz.
This is a major turning point in the work of Klemensiewicz. His larges paintings on canvas are more and more moving away from figurative patterns. Ladders are still present but they are now invested by a will of effacing and deconstruction.
In front of Piotr's painting, we cannot stay indifferents, we are attracted, magnetized, in a hand-to-hand relation, in this mysterious fusion of the form and the content revealed by the painting itself. We get closer, and then we move backwards. Near vision or overview. The body is in motion in front of a painting that circulates within the canvas and flows out of the frame to swallow us up.
Klemensiewicz raises the observation that all of these covered landscapes photographic, captured in Berlin, could not be travled. Our physical apprehension is then confined in the image. The covering of this image by the artist takes us back to the impossibility of representing the landscape he has seen but not explored.
Each of these images is made from a work on textures and colours that come from the own patterns of the image and the personal experience of the place and natural materials recorded in Klemensiewicz's memory and camera.
never been there... is playing with these ambiguities.
Landscape remains for the painter a privileged place in terms of colour, movement and material. You are invited to come and discover the experimentation of Piotr Klemensiewicz.
