David Renggli

Certains artistes aiment brouiller les pistes, refusent de se limiter à un seul support. Le suisse David Renggli s’y applique particulièrement. Dans sa dernière série Floorplan Desire Painting il joue d’illusions et là où de prime abord nous ne voyons qu’une seule surface, il s’agit en fait d’une superposition de plans. Peinture sur bois, sérigraphie et acrylique sur tissage de jute constituent les dimensions multiples de ses oeuvres. Elles gagnent ainsi en volume, prennent un nouvel aspect selon l’orientation de la lumière. On est confronté à un monde plat mais en relief, à des motifs architecturaux qui ne tiennent que sur une fine toile. Il efface les certitudes de chacun pour engager une conversation car “faire simplement des déclaration n’est pas satisfaisant.”

Some artists like to cover their tracks, refusing to be confined to a single medium. The Swiss David Renggli takes a particular care doing so. In his latest series Floorplan Desire Painting  he plays with illusions and where at first we only see one surface, it’s actually layers of plans. Wood painting, silkscreen and acrylic on weaved jute are the multiple dimensions of his works. They thus gain in volume, take a new look depending on the orientation of the light. We then face a flat world but in relief, with architectural motifs that take weight on a fine canvas. He clears our certainties to start a conversation as “putting out only statements is not satisfying.”

P.M.
