The bleak and photogenic submarine base built in the early 1940s was instantly warmed by the colors and nature of his Variations. The exhibit covers several series of his works from 1974 to present day, including abstract collages, paintings and drawings.

Le béton brut et photogénique de cette gigantesque base construite en début des années 40 est aussitôt rechauffé par les couleurs et jeux de matières de ses oeuvres, dessins, collages et peintures.

L’exposition couvre l’ensemble de l’oeuvre de l’artiste et plusieurs séries de 1974 à plus récemment.

PS: our 3 year old son on his run out said “we see more museum?”. Notre fils est sorti en courant et demandant “on va voir encore un musée?”.

Tried it. Loved it. Shared it.
