As a multidisciplinary artist, the work of François Réau focuses on the principle of appearance and disappearance of figures and patterns, within the materials in which they are formed.
The pieces presented in his exhibition Draw, which will take place at the Alliance Française Eildon Gallery, are the result of a six week residence at Bundanon in the Shoalhaven River area on the south coast of New South Wales. The exhibition will comprise a combination of works created while on site, using a variety of mediums including drawing, photography and film.
Using the landscape and its process of transformation as a source of inspiration, the work of François Réau reflects his questioning of man and nature. Within his work are themes of temporality, human fragility and the indescribable.
The work is underpinned by a reflection on being and becoming, and through large-scale pieces, invites the spectator into an experience that involves every sense.
The exhibition Draw focuses on Réau’s exploration of drawing as a medium, and his attempts to exceed its limits.
