VISIONARY REVUE

ANGEL - Michel Henricot

CHIMERA I
Michel
Henicot

    

      Eventually, Henricot's mummified figures entered into relationships with other extraordinary beasts: cerberus hounds, winged erinys or pre-historic pterodactyls. Indeed, these species altered and evolved to the point where their anatomies miraculously expanded and combined. Henricot demonstrates an extraordinary imaginative capacity to meld the ossified structures of man and beast.

IDOL II
Michel
Henricot

      In this way, the timeless human figures move back and forward into ancient pre-history or the far-distant future. Regressing from antiquity to the arcane origins of our species, trilobyte fossils reflect the primordial symmetry of our own skeletal structure. Or, as fascinating anomalies in our human evolution, transparent human figures acquire pre-historic wings and miraculously take flight into the endless depths of time.


 
 
 


PARIS - FALL 2004

GERARD DI-MACCIO

Open a new window to the Di-Maccio Gallery

      Though many French Visionaries are relatively unknown outside France, the exception to this rule is Gérard Di-Maccio. As a result of various international exhibitions (Osaka 1992, New York 1998), as well as through sheer talent and ability, he has managed to transcend the obscurity fated to most Visionary artists.

      Born in Algeria in 1938 of Spanish and Italian descent, Di-Maccio studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and eventually became a professor of painting there and at various French academies (la Grande Chaumière, Julian). His achievements were recognized early, and awarded with many international prizes.
