Born in 1943, François Rouan counts as one of France’s most reknown painters. A close friend of Balthus, and influenced by Lacan, François Rouan has been pursuing since the early sixties an investigation of language and meaning. He has developed an in-depth discourse over the concept of “tressage” (weaving). His first works consisted of strips of paper or canvas literally woven together. They relied on subtle plays of elements appearing and disappearing, upon repetitions and the sense of how the smallest element is incorporated into a larger dimension. For him, meaning can only be found in the interstices of reality fragments.
