Rencontre avec la peinture de Marc Torikian
To know les oeuvres of Marc is to ... know him? Maybe.
Start your connaissance from his gallery invitation.
A smiling, mischievous boy of 5…why it's Marc himself!
What did you expect? One of his paintings? No, of course not!
Look at the grin on the boy, its one of his little jokes— if you
are interested, you have to come to the gallery to see!
And from the grin, you are interested. So you succumb to
the flirtation, admire the esprit, and come.
And there they are. His works. Oh yes, I can tell you about
his previous expositions. How Marc has been showing his "dessins
and peintures" since 1974. That his work has been shown in
over 34 private shows. That his work has been displayed
in over 34 collective expositions. But I would rather
describe his paintings of this moment, this period.
The forms, abstract and light. Moving and Dancing.
At times a figure, at times a landscape— go on,
see what ever you can in the paintings.
"Huile sur toile". Maybe you can even see yourself.
Figures jumping and laughing, the impression of sight,
flight, and sounds. And there, you can see it, Marc
laughing right back at you.
