La Pesanteur et La Grâce || Gravity and Grace: Abstractions and Spirituality

La Pesanteur et La Grâce (Gravity and Grace: Abstractions and Spirituality) catalogues the French catalogue of the same name, featured at The French Academy in Rome, Villa Medici. The book includes critical texts by Éric de Chassey, Gianni Vattimo, Fanny Drugeon, Philippe Sers, and Emmanuel van der Meulen.

The artists

The exhibition and the catalogue explores the themes of spirituality and abstraction through the works of five internationally celebrated artists; Emanuele Becheri, Callum Innes, Georges Tony Stoll, Emmanuel Van Der Meulen, and Marthe Wery.

Reflections on Unseen Forces

The artists have chosen abstraction as a non-representational working model to depict the theme of the exhibition. The outcome reflects a situation in which the artists set aside their skills and allow the artistic medium to direct itself toward the ultimate representation of the show’s concept. The viewer, upon seeing these images, is able to perceive a specific experience and recognize its meaning within their personal sphere of cognitive reasoning. What remains of the physical presence of the works are the artists’ contemplations on the world, which are left open to an unfettered interpretation by the viewer. The catalogue represents a tangible opportunity which the reader can reflect upon and internalize the representations of unseen forces: Gravity and Grace.
