The Minsky Gallery is pleased to present its new group exhibition “Summer 2022”, under the summer theme of pastels and shadows. Ochre, pink, pale blue, the pastels invoked by Leonor Fini, François Martin or Antoni Clavé echo the play of light that the summer sun provokes when confronted with the shadows it draws. The works guide us through the artistic illuminations that the sun could have placed on these canvases, in a similar way to those that Leonor Fini, Antoni Clavé, François Martin, Frantisek Janula and Henri-Jean Closon transcribe on their canvases.
The exhibition begins with Frantisek Janula’s broken, intersecting and rearranged mirror, revealing the multiple reflections that light can take on during the summer.

Samy Briss was born in 1930 in Issai, Rumania. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bucharest (Camil Ressu’s studio) and acquired an international reputation in the seventies and eighties from frequent exhibitions, often several a year, in Europe, Canada and the United States.
The work of Sami Briss reveals an introspective, dreamy, timeless world which, despite the time that has elapsed since the Artist left his native land, seems largely inspired by his childhood memories, Rumanian folklore and icon painting.

A Painter and engraver, whose motto was “art changes as life does”. Max Papart’s work evolved from a post-cubist figurative language to the expression of a pure abstraction. He combined flat shades of colours, collages of paper prints and other elements such as lace, thus mixing styles and materials in a well-balanced composition.
Win Knowlton‘s works on paper are disarming in their simple deadpan vocabulary of signs and symbols.
These drawings, where the color is the line and the line is the color, urge a rich panoply of forms to engage in a dynamic, subtle and complexly disjunctive dialogue with the physicality of the paper ground. The mysterious metamorphosis of marks and forms that float in amorphous space reinforces many vague and enigmatic references : traces of tribal rhythms, rituals and marks; oblique allusions to naïve and primitive ingenuity; hints of Paul Klee; echoes of Bauhaus and an insider’s flirtation with any number of post modern sleight of hands.
