REOPENING – Galerie Fred Allard – Lutetia
Fred Allard never ceases to surpass himself. For this autumn, a new collection of exceptional elegance and refinement awaits you in the gallery.
Fred Allard’s sculptures are recognisable at first glance. The artist mainly uses the technique of inclusion, described in mineralogy as the confinement of a foreign body in a material.
This technique, unique and artisanal, Fred Allard developed and refined it in his family workshop in the Nice region.
There, he composes and sculpts, he compresses and crystallizes in resin inclusions iconic products belonging to the collective imagination, from the street to luxury goods, which have learned to live together.
His gesture is expressive, enthusiastic; the colours are vivid, striking. Fred Allard draws his inspiration from the protean current of the Nice school, notably César and his cuts, Arman for his inclusions.
The artist’s state of mind, his reflection, too, are inherited from his career: from the fashion laboratory he created several years ago, he keeps a culture, references, a language. He uses them and diverts them as he sees fit in his creative work, largely imbued with pop culture.
