Jean-Paul Blais & Xavier le Normand –


Until 25 April 2013

« Without black, no color has any depth ». Black isn’t a primary, secondary, or tertiary color. In fact, black isn’t on the artist’s color wheel and usually isn’t considered a color at all. In certain ways, black represents space, specifically outer space and infinite space. There’s also a mystery to things that can’t be defined, or seen, and the color black often accentuates anything with those mysterious or indefinable qualities. This exhibition illustrates the infinite depth of black through two amazing artists introducing, for the first time in Brussels, French glass artist Xavier le Normand, laureate of the prestigious « Prix Liliane Bettencourt pour l’Intelligence de la main » alongside Swiss wood sculptor Jean-Paul Blais, renowned for his deep black reliefs.
