Galerie Olivier Nouvellet - Realities Nouvelles































Five artist of the vivid facebook international community of non objective/minimal art showed in Galerie Olivier Nouvellet sunday 28 of june 2015, 19 rue de Seine, Paris 75006.

They all belong to the abstraction group of salon Réalités Nouvelles (next show in october 2015 in Paris).  Their work play with colour and material: Munira Naqui (Us) and Marilyn Chapin Massey (from US living in Paris) paint on dibond/aluminium, using respectively wax and acrylic.

Susan Buret (Australia) and Christine Boiry (Paris) prefer wood.  Danielle Lescot 's ceramics (Paris) are very often shown in the Gallery, their volume are often slightly tilted. You think you see a cube but angles are not 90 degrees.  Recent series play with a hole inside the volume, its relative shape and proportion.

Their inspiration come from abstraction in its minimal expression, whatever the geographic or historic period you can find a hint of islamic art for Susan, a hint of japanese art in the black and white for Munira, something deliberately related to artists like Blinky Palermo for Marilyn, Robert Mangold for Christine’s drawing on the series on view.  Marilyn’s work is related to the colour of the subway lines of the international big city in the world : Berlin and Paris for this show.
