Alain Godon returns to his adopted town of Le Tou­quet with Extravaganza

Until 18 March 2012 Alain Godon will be exhibit­ing 120 of his paint­ings in “Extrav­a­ganza” at the museum of his adopted town of Le Tou­quet. A town that allowed him to flour­ish as an artist, and to which he is now pay­ing trib­ute in this ret­ro­spec­tive exhi­bi­tion. With his colour­ful archi­tec­tural vision, Alain Godon gives us the chance to dis­cover the mar­ket place, the town hall and those places that so sym­bol­ise Le Tou­quet. Alain Godon is fas­ci­nated by urban life and the hus­tle and bus­tle of big cities: New York and its gigan­tic edi­fices, Paris and its famous mon­u­ments, like the Eif­fel Tower and the Moulin Rouge. A blend of irony and humour infuse his paint­ings in the minute details, the char­ac­ters come alive and imbue life into the sto­ries told on these can­vases. When we exam­ine them more closely, we can per­ceive a visual nar­ra­tive that has been exe­cuted with finesse.
