LouiSimone Guirandou Gallery is presenting “From light is born matter”, a collective exhibition bringing together Dramane Bamana and Richmond Tehe, until January 28.
The two artists highlight the possibilities offered by the plastic material and its invasive character. This synthetic material first takes its name from the power to shape and the beauty of the shapes. The richness of plastic lies in its infinite and varied properties: from shimmering colors to transparency, from flexibility to solidity, and from fragility to resistance. Dramane Bamana and Richmond Tehe exploit this potential to make matter the subject of their works. They confront it with the wear and tear of time or with fire, so many elements with uncertain effects which remind the artist that the material escapes him as much as he masters it.
Dramane Bamana represents genre scenes from recycled plastic. By recycling it, the artist becomes the spokesperson for the fight against the insalubrity caused by plastic pollution. Richmond Tehe reveals the framework of his drawing without revealing its secret. Far from concealing its guidelines, it highlights its gesture through assumed hatching.
