Presentation

Christian Floquet shows large recent paintings, somewhere between geometric abstraction and perceptible surface. Throughout his pictorial work, which is inspired by the language of geometric abstraction, this Swiss artist casts his eye on the relations between space and plane, form and colour. His pictures, be they rectangular or square, invariably with just two colours, play on the recurrence of one and the same motif. Fragmented coloured spaces, exploded asymmetrical figures, absence of references, and hierarchization of planes are the recurrent data informing his work.
