galerie bruno massa, Paris / New York
Galerie Bruno Massa presents Gilles Teboul at VOLTA13.
In his latest series, Gilles Teboul continues to keep a distance from the painter’s gesture. He goes as far as abolishing any gestural implication of the artist in the production.
In other words, the physical act of painting yields to a procedure where the color, in the purest ‘acheiropoïetic’ tradition, distributes itself onto the canvas. This Greek term means ‘not made by the hand of man, miraculously’. Thus, the creator’s role in the fabrication is extremely limited and the work assumes its definitive form in the very instant of its conception.
