Geneviève Claisse (born 1935, in Quiévy), is a French geometrical abstract painter.



A relative to Auguste Herbin, born in the same place, her painting vocation was born through reading the magazine Art d'aujourd'hui, tribune of geometrical abstraction.

 

Claisse is the great niece of abstract painter Auguste Herbin, a founder of the Parisian association of artists Abstraction-Création. Herbin saw Claisse's work for the first time when she was eighteen years old, and encouraged her to continue painting. In Herbin's mind, Claisse was "le successeur désigné par le destin et par l'hérédité" ("the successor appointed by destiny and heredity"). Like Herbin, Claisse's work shows a devotion to the ideals of formal purity and the perfection of execution. At this young age she worked tirelessly, often working at night after a day in the studio, carefully painting abstract forms on bold, colorful canvases.

 


1958 - First personal exhibits in the Galerie Caille in Cambrai and Galerie Hybler in Paris.
1959 - Moves to Paris and shares a studio with Herbin.
1961 - First exhibit in the Galerie Denise René in Paris where she will regularly exhibit in the following years.
1967 - Museum of fine arts of La Chaux-de-Fonds. Biennale de Paris.
1968 - "Art optique" at the museum of fine arts of Oslo
1970 - Paris: Claisse, Galerie Denise René.
1971 - Amsterdam: Claisse, Galerie d'Eendt.
1972 - Modern art center of Alençon.
1978 - Paris: Claisse, Concepts multilinéaires, Galerie Denise René.
1981 - Paris: Claisse, Geneviève Claisse, Galerie Denise René.
1983 - Palais des Beaux-Arts de Lille.
1989 - Musée Matisse du Cateau-Cambrésis (permanent collection)

 

 

 

 


In the 1965 years, she focused her work on color (Cercles, ADN).

 

Mon vocabulaire s'ouvre à la recherche du mouvement - et des espaces multiples - animant le plan de la surface peinte. Le cercle et le triangle, traités tour à tour et séparément, sont des thèmes privilégiés de compositions sérielles où la simplicité extrême des formes est transfigurée par l'intensité chaque fois différente des rapports de couleur.

 

(My vocabulary is open to the research of movement – and of multiple spaces – which animates the plan of the painted surface. The circle and the triangle, addressed one after the other and separately, are my favorite topics of serial compositions where the extreme simplicity of the shapes is transfigured by the intensity, every time different of the color relationship)
