Pierre Soulages | Une Expérience au présent

06 May - 12 June 2021

Opera Gallery Paris is pleased to present A Present-time experience, a solo presentation of works by Pierre Soulages. “Outrenoir” (Beyond black) paintings are gathered around an outstanding work from 1974 that seems to accurately foresee the latter series, thus revealing to what extent Soulages is in fact a painter of light. Standing in front of an Outrenoir painting is indeed accepting a certain pace, a dynamic, a mobility brought by the incidence of lighting or by a change of perspective, and accepting a path that leads to a solitary and unavoidable inner experience.
