The exhibition Nomades gathers extracts of two series of the artist Christophe Tissot entitled: Croisements and Rencontres. The Cipango Gallery exhibits these creations in the form of original works and prints arranged in diptychs or triptychs. Through these works, the painter pursues a reflection around the story of Pinocchio and Little Red Riding Hood, a theme that is frequently found in the artist's work.
In the series Encounters, the characters take unexpected poses and forms, they emerge from their mysterious appearances, a strange charm. The confrontation of the colors is in echo with that of the figures. The immobile images seem to be in motion. The same arrangement in the Crossings series, the same effects where the truculence of the lines is reminiscent of the instinctive spontaneity of the child who draws. For these works, sources of meditation, are also a refreshing evocation of the world of childhood in which everything comes alive to save us from the sometimes cruel shortcomings of reality.
The Galerie Cipango has been known since 1978 for its distinctive and unique pieces of jewellery. It encourages encounters and dialogue between established artists, in the field of sculpture, artist’s jewellery and graphic works.
The gallery offers long-term partnerships with its artists selected for the quality and coherence of their work. In addition to solo and group shows in France and abroad, it offers artists a chance to produce some of their pieces as editions.
