When art invites to the beach... it's a poem.

27/08/2022 evening: Vernissage at Cabane Bambou


• Born in 1950 in France, Charles Serruya, the poet of the Epure Photographer, specialist in light effects and Chinese shadows, director, sculptor, underground dandy of New York and Parisian nights, Charles Serruya had a thousand lives! His wire sculptures, all refined and light, reveal a delicate graphic art, nourished by dreams and escape.
• Worked on the play of light, and uses shapes like words, unrolling its steel wires like a spider its web, playing with capture, thus creating drawings in space. For Charles Serruya, the dream is a reality present in every human being.
•  In this newt exhibition organized by Art Thema Gallery on the private beach of Cabane Bambou, in the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, Charles Serruya stages  his aerial sculptures  in a setting combining reverie and dolce vita. The curves of the beach interact with the curves of his suspended "steel drawings" and create a poetic and sensual alchemy.

    The Poet of Purity

    "The sea gives us a wonderful feeling of freedom, out of time..."

    • A line that Charles Serruya stretches until it becomes a thread. A rudimentary wire which becomes sophisticated and whose effects multiply according to the chosen subjects: portrait, nude or fresco. A thread of joy that we follow in its tracks in its controlled entanglement.
    • Since the mid-1980s, Charles Serruya has been developing graphic work using Chinese shadow and cut-out silhouette. Photography, film, projection and lighting are available according to the achievements and collaborations ranging from fashion show to live performance. Charles Serruya asserts a certain idea of ​​the baroque by avoiding overbidding. He has fun and does it with minimal means but without minimalism. A poetry devoid of sentimentality emerges from his works, as if a character escaped from a vase in ancient Greece would recite verses by Prévert.
    • A journey that transcends references without restraint takes him on the path of nomadism. A portrait painter in his spare time, he improvises a traveling portrait cabinet. The subject is thus staged in situ surrounded by his real or imagined attributes. No official portrait or order here, the fantasy of the personalities is sketched in a light line.
