Exhibition from february 2nd to march 9th 2002

Steven Parrino, instantly associated with conceptual art, has traced a very personal path which straight away separates him from this movement. Originally a musician, he has turned to painting which Michel Gauthier defines as “vandal”: “(…) canvases crumpled on their frames: vast monochromes, of which a part of the surface, big or less big depending on the instance, was unhooked to be crumpled then reattached in its new position, resulting in numerous folds.” This technique denounces a principle of action which one can find throughout his work: the accident, and the systematic rejection of conformity, indeed of the complacency of painting.
