PETER ROGIERS @ GALERIE RICHARD – PARIS – OCTOBER 24 – DECEMBER 21

 

Galerie Richard

74 Rue de Turenne
75003 Paris, France

October 24 – December 21

For the first time in Paris, Galerie Richard presents a solo exhibition of Peter Rogier’s “Ectoplasmic,” a series of aluminum sculptures inspired by Brancusi and Serra, B-movies, comics, fairy tales and rock ‘n’ roll. Previously, Galerie Richard showcased Rogier’s work in their New York City location, where it was reviewed by Art in America, The Wall Street Journal, and World Sculpture News. His work is regularly exhibited in Antwerp, Ghent, Barcelona, and Grenoble.

“Ectoplasmic” is all about contrast. Rogiers strives to achieve a balance between high and low culture with light and heavy statuary. The visual distortion of his work urges tension in the viewer, who can sense these polar influences both attempting to realize the overwhelming space of the sculpture. His choice of aluminum as his medium provides further contrast in his depictions of organic objects such as fish, birds, and busts. Artistically maimed into abstraction, the aluminum can take on different forms depending on the viewing angle, further confounding its physical presence to the viewer. Unlike other serial works which speak larger volumes in whole, each of Rogier’s pieces stands alone in their artistry and each may offer a unique visual and emotional impact.
