Alain Gegout

Alain Gegout is a self-taught artist registered at the Maison des Artistes since 1976. He says he is a "disfiguring" artist: the human form is disfigured, dislocated to make way for the texture of being. It thus moves away from the aesthetic ideal of the subject to focus on emotions, sensations.
It is present in many private and public collections in France, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium, United States ...
"I have come across the artist's works for a long time. False, the verb crossing is hardly suitable because it must be said that I stop every time, I stop, I look, I take the pulse of the thing, Mine, it seems to me that it sticks. The type, this French painter born in 1951, this skier mountaineer, this frantic cyclonaut, this airy and intoxicated adventurer in the air of the Alps, is tremendously gifted. 'Impression that he is a talkative, logorrheic man but, having never met him, I am not sure. I feel it well as an inveterate creator, to model strange, useless, absurd and exciting sentences in the Silence, to sow his passage of traces, splashes, fingerprints and sounds. There is his muse, Flo, his inspiration that he tortures and sublime constantly. This monstrous and sumptuous virtual protuberance of himself, This embodied and crippled fantasy is a sublime find located with an unlikely intersection between Jarry's pataphysics and the tormented aesthetic quest for Egon Schiele. "
Denys-Louis Colaux, art critic and poet
