Titus-Carmel - écarts/tracés
Gérard Titus-Carmel was born in 1942 in Paris. He lives and works in Oulchy-le-Château in France. From 1958 to 1962, he studied at the Ecole Boulle in Paris, in the printmaking and jewellery studios, and since then has devoted himself exclusively to drawing, painting and writing.
His work quickly became organized into suites and series, each dated and ‘closed’. Their titles, adjoined, tell a long story of loss leading to the edge of emptiness and absence. Then followed suites of drawings themed around dislocating and breaking, deconstruction and splicing. These all linked to the heart of a body of work whose conceptual and graphic investigations interpenetrate – work that he pursues, moreover, by "illustrating" a large number of works by poets and writers.
Since the early 70s, Gérard Titus-Carmel has worked series after series around a theme or an object that he creates himself before drawing or painting it.
In his surprising compositions, he recreates movement via streaks and hatch-marks in graphite, demonstrating considerable artistic assurance.
Gérard Titus-Carmel’s first solo exhibition took place in 1964. From these first exhibitions in the 60s, his paintings, drawings, lithographs and etchings revealed a passion for literature, echoed in the titles and dedications of his paintings.
