Images Clairvoyant

Images have the power to transcend time, evoking responses drawn from primordial memory. Curiously it is this link to deep time past that enables images to anticipate the future as well. The exhibit is entitled Clairvoyant.

Saint-Cyr-sur-Loire, in the Loire Valley of France

is again the venue for an exhibition of my photogravure etchings, this time in the Pavillon Charles X, Parc Perraudière. A previous exhibition of my photogravure etchings of Mongolia, held in April 2010, was organized by l’Association Touraine-Mongolie (president: Paul Olivier; Secretary-General: Mireille Turquois).

The 36 photogravure etchings in the 2012 exhibit encompass Currents, Rhythms, Reflections, Light, Fog, and Shadow (six each): Affiche

A special edition of the exhibition catalogue, limited to 30 impressions, includes an original photogravure etching — Matines — printed especially for this edition on 210 x 210 mm Fabriano Tiepolo etching paper, is available here.

Marie Parra-Aledo writes in the Introduction about the connection between modern and primordial intaglio:

‘From simple gestures to the most innovative technologies, the print always resonates with visceral perception, with the vital rhythms of primordial gestures seen today as gestures of art, intimately bound up with the instinctive, living perception possessed in common by humans and animals, in search of memory.’

‘Du geste simple aux innovations technologiques, l’estampe contient toujours une résonance spontanée avec la perception du corps, de ses rythmes vitaux comme des gestes primordiaux percus aujourd’hui comme gestes d’art, intimement melés à la perception du corps de l’homme et de l’animal et, de facon vitale, au desir de mémoire.’

The inspiration for this exhibit comes from Japan, where I live — not only the geographical Japan, but the image of Japan wherever it may be found in the world. The City of Saint Cyr on the banks of the Loire and the gracious citizens of the Touraine region provide the perfect setting for this excursion into the wonders of intaglio. My sincere thanks to the Direction des Services Culturels, Mairie de Saint-Cyr-sur-Loire for making this exhibit possible, to Roman Kames for his design of the exhibition catalogue, to Jean-Yves Couteau for the Introduction, and to Marie Parra-Aledo for her essay.
