Kolly Gallery presents the new solo exhibition of Mambo .The title of the exhibition refers to the concept of communication and graphics, which converge individual elements to connecting networks. Every single vertical brushstroke in Flavien’s painting represents one element that operates though the collectivity on the canvas. “I like the paradox of having a very mechanical way of painting canvases, that finds its beauty in the mistakes and accidents happening along the way.“ Mambo, 2018.
Multiple layers of simple vertical brushstrokes characterize Flavien’s particular manner for his abstract paintings presented in his unique body of work.
Through a very minimal, conceptual and repetitive creative practice and a black-white based color range, Flavien reflects human coexistence in the world. Therefore humanity is a main concern of the artist’s body of work. He is fascinated and inspired by the power, the beauty and the chaos that humanity is able to create. Flavien deeply believes that only the force of nature is capable of creating long term beauty.
