The Nymphalids

Paul-Armand Gette - The Nymphalids
Artist's book.
“…I'm a lover of images, too, the proof being on view at the galerie du jour agnès b, and in my collection of contemporary art. So what a Godsend - what sheer bliss - to be able to reveal Paul-Armand's world here, complete with commentaries!
For once we find an artist speaking of his model(s) with respect and tenderness, admiringly linking the eternal feminine to a past inhabited, for him, only by goddesses. Nor are these images dated: thirty years old, some of theme, and they could have been made yesterday. And then there are Paul-Armand's performances, those joyous moments when the artist is teased by his model. Paul-Armand plays on the elasticity of time, speaking always of youth - and always youthfully.”
