David Bloch Gallery Presents: "Sensitive Eye" Arthur Dorval & LX ONE (Marrakech, Moroc)

Read from the press release below:


Opening Friday the 14th of September at 7pm.

Arthur Dorval is born in 1987. He lives and works in the North of France.
As a gallerist’s child, Arthur Dorval has developed a deep fascination with abstract painting.
After studying illustration and design, he focused its passion for colors and scale models on a reinvention of geometrical image.
From his beginnings in 2010, he sets up a technique that skillfully mixes play on colors and shapes, within a principle of construction and balance driven by his attention to detail and his desire for perfection.
Like “painted scultpures”, his geometrical «Éclosions» create vibrant compositions, where basic patterns evolves in new volumes, thanks to a special work on color and transparency which releases an unprecedented architecture, whether credible or not. Modern vision of geometrical art, Arthur Dorval’s «Éclosions» also refers to futurism. They position the artist among the most promising talents of Optical Art nowadays.
LX ONE dissects the pixel, he explores the base of the form, the skeletons of colors. He disserts around the field of geometry: the noise of shapes, a system of tensions in the free space, a response to our architecture, urbanism and design.
Inspired by Piet Mondrian and Vasarely, LX ONE decided to concentrate only on vertical and horizontal lines. In 1910, the Neoplasticians believed that art should be conceptualized, using plan elements and color blocks, where lyricism, dramatic, symbolism, and simple narration were turned off. The image should have no other meaning than itself.
In the mid 90´s LX ONE is modulating his graphic talents into the science-fiction world of grids, checkerboard grids, isometric, hexagon grids; decomposing the letter form in its purest version. He is travelling between plain and empty spaces using the colors as a bridge. Following the graffiti tradition he gives us a three dimensional illusion which confuses and attacks the vision, with cellular structures, axonometric cubes, unassignable volumes and the ambiguity of the form itself. His successfull evocation of movement, light and shadows through colors changes and his illusionary, unreal spaces are created through this alternate mode of seeing.
