Charly surprises us, charms us and seduces us with his creation of a stunning organic universe. Endowed with an unparalleled sensitivity, his paintings plunge us into a macrocosm where dream reigns supreme.
His research around colorimetry takes on its full meaning here: through them, the artist achieves a striking pictorial power. The coldness of the blues blends harmoniously with the immaculate whiteness of the pearly tones of his flowers. Suddenly, without warning, the fuchsia and the orange heckle this original serenity. From then on, another season is born. Here, we admire the eternal seasonal cycle operating on the fragility of the petals of its flowers.
As a wink to Monet, Charly Bounan’s paintings celebrate the impressionist icon of Giverny. Sometimes abstract, sometimes figurative, Charly Bounan declines the water lilies in various and varied forms. For certain paintings it happens to him to crystallize in the acrylic and the plaster of the paper flowers… As if a winter frost had frozen them on a freshly snow-covered ground. For others, the fluidity of the pictorial touch seems to give the spectator the sensation of immersing himself in the lakes on which the water lilies rest.
“Without the dream, there is no poetry possible. And without poetry, there is no bearable life.” – Charly Bounan’s works are part of those dreams that rock our imagination. The onirism that characterizes them leads us to a feeling of well-being. Calm and comforting.
