Julien Saudubray - Pion Soleil

Thu-Sat: 12-6pm

Cob is pleased to present Pion Soleil, the UK solo exhibition debut for French artist Julien Saudubray.

Saudubray’s work is rooted in a creative desire to express the automatic gesture. The exhibition centres around a new suite of twelve oil on canvas paintings. These abstract works - united only in style and format - typify a continued artistic investigation driven by intuition - a performative process in which the artists’ painterly form and material selection is informed.

Using a mixture of oil and turpentine, Saudubray's oil paintings are made from the application of washes of warm and bright colours. He alternates these oil painted layers with those of gesso to achieve a gauze-like translucency. The resulting compositions of reduced and repeated shapes biomorphically vibrate in both chemistry and colour, revealing the beauty that emerges from chemical chance.
