Alain Godon, con­tem­po­rary “archi­tect of dreams” in the foot­steps of Matisse.

Alain Godon, con­tem­po­rary “archi­tect of dreams” in the foot­steps of Matisse. Alain Godon pre­sented his exhi­bi­tion themed on travel in the museum cre­ated by Matisse in 1952. No acci­den­tal choice, since these two colourist artists have more than one thing in com­mon. Between New York and Tahiti, his 150 or so works take us to another sin­gu­lar and dream­like world.

An artist with a child’s per­spec­tive
The gen­eros­ity, pas­sion, human­ity and desire to spread joy that radi­ate from Alain Godon as a human being, also shine through in his works. They recount every­day sto­ries, moments and places with spon­tane­ity, humour and ten­der­ness; as in our inner jour­neys. What we can also see here is how in his own dis­tinc­tive style he absorbs the char­ac­ter of the archi­tec­ture to give it a human face, whilst at the same time putting him­self into the sce­nario.

A fas­ci­na­tion with the relief image
Whether through his sculp­tures, giant pop-​ups, Bil­doRe­liefos or through his hith­erto unseen instal­la­tions, such as the life-​sized New York taxi made of resin and sand, the three dimen­sional image is an essen­tial com­po­nent of Alain Godon’s work, of his “Archi­tec­ture of Dreams”. This exhi­bi­tion is a true explo­sion of colour, of joy­ous­ness and of inven­tive­ness. Some­thing to enrap­ture old and young, con­tem­po­rary art buffs and the sim­ply curi­ous, alike.
