Presentation of the gallery

Florent Maubert created Galerie Maubert in 2010. With an academic and curatorial background in visual arts and contemporary dance, he chooses to confront mediums and art forms.
The Maubert Gallery is conducting a prospecting work towards young designers. These artists question themes that punctuate the history of art and our contemporary societies: perception, gesture, use, space, movement... It also represents artists already established on the art scene (Nathalie Talec, Sylvie Fanchon, Nicolas Floc'h, etc.) and historical artists (Larry Bell, Joachim Bandau, Lucien Hervé, etc.) whose institutional recognition it supports.

Presentation of the artist in focus

For more than 30 years, the Portuguese painter Jose Loureiro has been developing a body of work, drawings and paintings, which he himself characterises by three rather mysterious names: "bullfinch", "filament" and "arch". "Bullfinch": obvious when you look at the colors and shapes of this small, alert and courageous bird. "Filament" because, beyond the materiality of light, it is its fragility, its sizzle that Loureiro wants to paint. "Arch" because the shapes he draws are never straight lines or complete circles. We are in an in-between, a form in the process of being constructed or evaded.

José Loureiro has exhibited in prestigious institutions such as the Centre Pompidou, the Gulbenkian Foundation, the Chiado National Museum of Contemporary Art in Lisbon, the Serralves Museum in Porto... His works are part of important collections including the Centre Pompidou, the Daniel and Florence Guerlain Foundation, the Berardo Museum, the Serralves Museum...
