Exhibition “ESPACES” Aix en Provence Exhibition in Arles Exhibition “IMAGINE” in AVIGNON Exhibition BORDEAUX Exhibition in CHINA RG peint pour que l’imaginaire retrouve ses lettres de noblesse, abreuvé de chromos et de fausses pistes. Il peint pour retrouver les valeurs qui enchantent les amateurs d’art qui aiment la peinture “peinture” (Turner, Monet, Permeke, Zao Wou Ki, ) RG – ARLES – 2017 ROBERT GHEYSSENS “What on earth are you trying to find from others ? Blind, whose head you put on a head. What is missing for you ?” Lin-Ji 9th century Through thinking that we can reach what we have dreamed about and imagined, we have been crawling on this earth for so long like a caterpillar waiting for the splendid , diaphanous flower borne within itself. It will have taken 40 years of hard work to unlearn the canvas and come back to point zero at which trust and innocence are the only guides capable of breaking down the limits of scepticism and experience. We can only approach his present-day work if, caught up in a centrifugal whirlwind by too many diaphanous memories of comforting references and comparisons, so we remain covered in droplets of water before the ocean. We are often already hemmed in by too many images, too many woven, translucent icons which limit us in a centripetal whirlwind. In order to turn around, and not keep within us what liberated colours reveal, we just need to accept the boldness of the artist who has been able to smooth them out from our memories.
