GERARD RENVEZ

GERARD RENVEZ

Gérard Renvez’s singular ink works are a mind-bending mixture of mechanical processes that pays tribute to what Renvez calls “the memory of industrial sites” as they disappear. Renvez collects pieces of tools and machinery from such sites and transfers their images to paper with the aid of the rust, dust, pigment traces, and grease that naturally accrues over time. The process makes for a spectrum of permanence, from color lying on top of the paper to the dust truly mixing in with the fibers.
Renvez was born in Paris and today lives in Normandy, France. He exhibited in Nottingham where he lived and worked on industrial sites (Raleigh and Sturmey Archer factories );He currently exhibits at home and abroad.
