Guillaume Bottazzi : edition 2017

“Take inspiration from the outside rather than from within”, said the philosopher François Dagognet.

This approach should apply to art. Art should take new paths, regenerate itself, provide something unexpected and surprising. It should turn up where it is not necessarily expected and accompany us every day, because art contributes to our personal development, helps us to live and stimulates our creativity.

When he spoke of his preference for soft forms, Gaston Bachelard drew attention to hand-made works. Their specific nature introduces tactile qualities. Living materials soften our environment and stimulate our desires.

My works do not impose representation or even my own emotions. Art is not reality, but it sustains reality by subliming it. Like Kandinsky’s paintings, my works change, reincarnate and evolve. The impression of presence and absence stimulates our creativity. Art can transcend civilisations and give rise to infinite movement.
