Fusing together pattern designs, abstract intricate drawings and good use of colors, the work of GUILLAUME DÉNERVAUD , a swiss artist and illustrator, involves an intense exploration of drawing, inspired by early modernism and the aesthetics of abstraction in contemporary culture.
Balancing complexity and simplicity, his last installation – created during a residency of seven days at Atelier des Rats in Vevey (Switzerland) - employs a variety of display mechanism to show off a collection of modestly scaled but likably eccentric juxtapositions. The exhibition emphasized drawings, which GUILLAUME executes with a casual, intuitive scrawl. The painted wallpaper with its mix of geometrical and organic shapes works as a vibrant technicolor background allowing a physical experience.
