Geneviève Claisse (1935-2018) was one of the major painters of French abstraction, in the demanding and pure lineage of Auguste Herbin’s art (1882-1960). Trained at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, she quickly abandoned lyrical abstraction in favor of geometry. Circles and triangles are part of her preferred repertory.
The work we propose has two levels: first, the sheet of paper, flat, smooth, where two triangles intersect. The second level consists in three triangles glued together with foam elements that enhance them and make them stand out in volume.
Everything here is measured, elegant and simple. But an assumed simplicity, the result of a purity that focuses on the essential. Claisse composes this work by playing on the mass of solid black triangles and the triangles only drawn by an outline line, thus "empty". The black triangles seem to float in an indeterminate space and suggest movement, evidence of Claisse's interest in the kinetic art emerging in the 1960s and Op Art
This composition is framed by a thin border that completes the work , not floating in the sheet. Everything is thought out here by the artist, who perfectly masters his art of balance and delicacy, with economy of means. Each angle, each distance, each parcel is thought out according to the whole. It is at this price that the artist achieves this geometric composition without dryness.
