PAINTING IS A PLAY

Painting is a game for Gailliard. A game of hands and mind, in which the inner and the outer merge. For him painting was the synthesis of the material and the spiritual. Stained brush strokes and warm earthy tones emphasize the materiality of the painting. His adventure in abstraction does not lead to cool geometry, like that of his colleagues. Gaillard's geometry is dreamy, loose and imaginative. A surreal abstraction connecting nature and imagination.
