drawings

Grégoire Vion’s soft pastel drawings, sparsely furnished, call for close observation; subtleties occur in the background, the quiet surroundings. Typically done on large sheets of thick watercolor paper, they have the feel of old walls or worn cloth, porous boundaries of intimate territories.

These drawings are thresholds, opened without preconception of where they may lead. Sometimes two are drawn as one, side-by-side. A few feature ogive forms which turn into wings, lips, petals, flames… bits and pieces of a floating world, tethered here and there with thin threads. Titles are habitually given in French, as shown in the overview below. Click on individual images for further details and titles in English.
