Inspired by the sewing skills of his grandmother's family, one from Paris, the other from Breton.
Fascinated by the folds and curtains of Madame Grès, the dressmaker. Transported by the images of other times that preserve the memory of the old Parisian markets in 1900 or the sails navigate the world.
Alexandre Gourçon applies all these emotions to the canvas. His sober canvas, pleated or gathered, hollowed out or stretched, like notes of life. Draw horizontal lines cut diagonally like the lines of the hand with our uncertain destinations.
History is renewed, and each time Alexandre Gourçon adapts to reveal the most beautiful impression of the present.
