Jean-Pierre Tachier-Fortin: Retrospective exhibition
“In 2016, Jean-Pierre Tachier-Fortin had the pleasure to present a two-month retrospective of his career at Foucaud’s Castle – Museum of Fine Arts of the city of Gaillac (France).
This exhibition was a tribute of the Parisian painter to his hometown, Toulouse, and to his family roots, in Gaillac. This exhibition has been matured and prepared for a long time, including several residencies of the artist in Gaillac.
After presentation of his work in many international exhibitions and fairs (FIAC, …), his inspiration requires from him lately a work which associates his old inspirations and new directions, especially around the cities which inspired him such as Casablanca, Dublin, Toulouse and more recently Gaillac.
In large, colorful compositions in which abstraction creates space, subtle evocations of urban atmospheres with floating colors. The artist’s gesture is always sincere, the shades of gray and white quiver or bubble and the poetic seduction that emanates from the paintings has the taste of both a revisited impressionism and an oriental elegance.”
– Bertrand de Viviés, Chief Curator of the Gaillac Museums.
