Georges Tony Stoll at La Galerie, Noisy-le-Sec
A painter who became a photographer and video maker while also working as a movie production designer, this French artist sees his oeuvre as a fruitful dialogue between all these disciplines. In this back-and-forth between painting, photography, drawing and writing, he operates in what he calls “abstraction territory”, a space open at any and every moment to the appearance of multiple possibilities and ambiguities. His chosen forms and media reflect his speculation about the experience and the actual making of art, and about the concept of abstraction in a society in which the dominance of the real can extend even to the domain of the imagination. This show offers a fresh interpretation of the Paris-based artist’s work. (This Sat 21 Jan, 5pm, meet the artist and curator Jean-Marc Avrilla at the gallery; and on Fri 3 Feb, 7pm, a screening of Stoll’s films in presence of the artist at Mains d’Œuvres).
Until 11 Feb. Tue-Fri, 2-6pm; Sat, 2-7pm (Closed Sun, Mon).
