LINES AND LINKS
06.10.2021 - 25.10.2021
Press releaseFrom October 6 to 25, the ASKERI GALLERY will host a personal exhibition of the French artist Romain Froquet "Lines and Links".
Born in 1982 in the city of Villeurbanne (France) Romain Froquet now lives and works in one of the most multicultural cities in the world — Paris. It is an environment in which values, philosophy and aesthetics of many different peoples and epochs organically intertwine and mutually influence each other.
Inspired by this milieu and free from any prejudice, passionate art lover Romain Froquet experiments with combinations of various cultural codes and deftly forms on his canvases new connections between the dynamics of urban art and the subtle expressiveness of graphics. It is in the process of a constant desire to reconcile the abstract with the figurative that unique and well-recognized author's motives are born.
As part of Romain Froquet's fourth personal project, new abstract compositions by the author will be presented in the ASKERI GALLERY space. Remarkably, some of them include ethnic ornamental elements weaved into the clear graphic contouring lines. They remind of the identity that manifests itself in total globalization, of individuality and culture codes that lurk inside the sharp circuits of modernity. While our history and origin make us unique personalities, the modern forms of communication that unite us determine our belonging to a particular community. The artist skillfully conveys this changeable state of a modern man by intertwining lines on canvas.
An artist with a rich worldwide exhibition history, including the sites such as the Pompidou Center in Paris, Romain Froquet is constantly in search of new forms of creative expression and is not limited to gallery walls in it. In different parts of the world you can find his street art objects, graffiti, murals, installations and sculptures, and in Russia he is known for a large-scale collaboration with BOSCO DI CILIEGI, whereby the artist not only decorated the windows of the VESNA trading house, but also completely changed its internal appearance with his art objects and paintings.
The partner of the event is the Korean-French brand Erborian, whose concept is based on the best achievements of traditional Korean pharmacology and modern high technologies. Constantly improving, Erborian embodies what many have been striving for - combines the centuries-old secrets of Asian skin care in a convenient and modern form, creating incredible, unlike anything else, "smart beauty" products. The main pride of the brand is its ultra–light delicate textures and highly effective safe formulas.
