Claude VIALLAT, Nîmes, 1936. He is the founder member of the Supports/Surfaces movement. His work embodies the aesthetics of this movement from the 1970’s. He relentlessly pursues integral experimentation. His work is based on the repetition of a simple shape functioning as a logo, a practice that he discovered in 1966. The form would be similar to the point of a pointillist painting, future protagonist of the work. Claude VIALLAT places his shape on free canvases without frames. Depending on the weave and the texture, the material of the support gives the form a more or less clean outline, a more or less strong intensity of tone. Claude VIALLAT’s art is characterised by the sumptuousness of the colour.
