Painter at first, until the middle of the 1990s, then sculptor
, Michel Gouéry (born 1959 in Rennes, France, lives and works in Paris) practices ceramics
with mastery, employing a register that is singular to say the least. Definitely bizarre, telescoping references to artists of the past, to Dada
, to Surrealism
, to great writers, as well as to the minor registers of science fiction
cinema and comics, his work cultivates the anti-conformist, the incongruous and the perverse, without neglecting the perfect quality of the material.
