A child's spirit, a great talent, those two words could resume the skill of this self-taught artist born in 1944. He paints his lifestyle, serene, sensitive, away from the hustle and bustle of high-life. Uneven and muffled texture in various shades of grey, blue, red, pink beat the tempo of an unambiguous stroke giving life to delightful characters who recently jumped out of their canvas to be set into bronze sculptures bearing their familiar gestures.
Anton vu par la presse
« Moi, j’me balance », semble chanter François Anton, ou tout au moins son éternel personnage, en perpétuel déséquilibre, saltimbanque sur le fil du monde, qui joue à « saute- nuages ». Enfant au corps d’adulte poursuivant ses gambades à la Galerie Seiller, de skate en trottinette, de patins en cerceaux. Enfant de Daumier, dont il a l’ironie, sans la cruauté, de Chagall, dont il a le regard enchanté. Et pourtant Anton a incontestablement une patte reconnaissable entre mille.
En toiles qui allient huiles et pastels au trait incisif du crayon, Anton promène son avatar dans diverses situations. Comme un héros de BD vivant ses aventures aux quatre coins du globe. A l’instar de son personnage « devenu vieux sans être adulte », l’artiste joue avec sa figurine la plaquant dans des décors pour en « presser » les émotions. Décors quotidiens, faussement réalistes.
Comme au théâtre, temple du jeu, ailleurs, lieu du voyage sans passeport, univers de fantaisie qui pourrait être sa mémoire. Mais rien d’ethnologique ni d’exotique dans ces voyages. Car Anton a une démarche de poète, rebondissant sur des correspondances baudelairiennes : il n’en subsiste que les sensations. Toujours dans deux dimensions, de cabriole en calembour, Anton garde la lucidité de l’enfant dans le jeu, jonglant avec les illusions et le réel. Sans naïveté, sans nostalgie. Cet innocent paradis récréatif, il le recrée à sa guise, réveillant chez l’adulte une joie réelle de cet univers regagné. Il n’est pas étonnant que se décline ici le mythe du clown, du saltimbanque, thème miroir de l’artiste et l’enfant confondu.
Always in two dimensions, of cabriole in pun, Anton keeps the lucidity of the child in the game, juggling with the illusions and the real one. Without naivety, without nostalgia. This innocent recreational paradise, he recreates it as he pleases,...
Jean-Claude ALLENBACH was born on 17. July 1947 in Colmar, Alsace. To our deepest regret he passed away before his sixtiest birthday. He became a painter in 1972 after discovering the beauty of Provence, where he stayed frequently. Landscape-painter and colourist, his palette is dominated by the brightness of the warm colours of mediterranean sceneries, filled with sunshine. He preferred oil paintings and lithographies, that were regularly shown in France, Japan and Switzerland. Many art-collectors are happy they choose his works and personally I own some master pieces.
Le cabinet Collector
His paintings are singular...the artist’s eye excels in the art of capturing the essential. Without going as far as abstraction, Allenbach initiates us to discover very synthesized landscapes and flowers, where nevertheless no element is missing. The blending of colours is marvellously organized and his touch so well controlled, that there is no place for doubt. We are immediately captured by his world of reassuring and fascinating serenity. I appreciated contemplating his works silently in his company, when he gave me the honour of a visit at Saint Paul... Frequent exhibitions have been organized in his presence (see events).

An inventor. Using materials hidden inside data-processing machines, electric and electronic articles, Tassou defines his work by the concept “cybertrash”. Works consisting of wall or three dimensional sculptures, totems. Unique pieces, that tell the memory of a technology damned to obsolescence right at the origin.
Real genuine goldsmith of electronic components, Tassou found an important place in my gallery, next to artists he appreciates and together with them sometimes he composes very unusual and original pieces, that he calles “revisitations”.
