Open­ing night with a new style at the gallery Fardel

The flow­er­ing of Godon! In this exhi­bi­tion of 40 water colours, 3 oils paint­ings and 9 relief images (high def­i­n­i­tion images on steel sheets and reworked to give a shadow effect), we can see two dia­met­ri­cally opposed con­cepts: the relief images of Le Tou­quet in the show­room at the back depict places in Le Tou­quet well known to both its inhab­i­tants and its vis­i­tors alike: the town hall, the post office, the mar­ket place, all in the inim­itable style of the artist and then, to our great sur­prise, del­i­cate works using water colour, a tra­di­tional tech­nique, which por­tray flow­ers, and, as the man never does any­thing by halves, he has linked up with another artist, François Bequelin of the “Bou­quet­terie” — the florist on the rue de Metz — to assail our sense of smell as well as sight. These works, sump­tu­ously framed, sur­prise with their del­i­cacy, but on closer inspec­tion, we are able to recog­nise the artist and his style, par­tic­u­larly in his out­lines and his colours; the artist who once again has cho­sen to” live dan­ger­ously” and to wrong-​foot all his fans with a unique and yet remark­able experience.
