For more than thirty years, Philippe Favier has been a singular figure in the art world. Following his own path, away from trends and beaten tracks, he has been developing an often-dreamlike unique universe filled with humoristic or nostalgic quotes. The diversity of his plastic creations and the variety of the materials he uses contribute to his approach being one of the most original of our time.
Since 2006, our editing gallery has been following Philippe Favier through several original creations that illustrate his genius. Inventiveness and freedom are the core elements of his outstanding work.
Le mariage de Francis, his last edition created for the 8+4 gallery is a set of 6 original plates in tribute to Francis Picabia.
From images representing mechanical elements from the industrial era (like gears…) that Philippe Favier collected during his many wanders through thrift shops, each motif is partly covered by a black background and enhanced by a wedding veil. The artist has intervened on every plate, disrupting the surface through multiple actions: pictorial additions (writings, numbers etc.) but also mere objects (metallic eyelet, leather strap etc.) Thus, even though this set of 6 plates is made in a series of 8, each set remains unique.
The set is presented in a box/ wooden suitcase painted in black.
