Thursday, January 17th: Art Gallery Première Ligne Presents Gregory Masurovsky

Cécile Odartchenko is the owner of the art gallery Première Ligne. On Thursday, she will talk about her work and will focus on American artist Gregory Masurovsky she met in the 60's in the USA.

Since his arrival in France in 1954, the artist has been using four media: quill and ink, engraving needle and copper sheet, shallow gouge and wood or linoleum and also chalk and stone to express his black and white universe. 
Indeed, Masurovsky tries to reveal the "colors of the soul" through those two non-colors by working on light effects enhancing shadows that represent the depth of night.

After a period when he mingled figuration and abstraction, he has added to his images hand-written texts.
