Le Tou­quet : Patina and colour in Alain Godon’s lat­est exhibition

At the open­ing night last Sat­ur­day, the Milani Gallery pre­sented Alain Godon’s most recent work. Vis­i­tors can, until the begin­ning of June, dis­cover his sculp­tures: bronzes with pati­nas in hues of brown like the “Empire State Build­ing”; or in green, such as the orig­i­nally dis­tinc­tive head of the “Statue of Lib­erty”, where “the brass scaf­fold­ing sur­round­ing the head took a crafts­man over one month to make” Alain Godon confided.”

As for the sculp­ture itself, that took a year of my time”. It is the same story for the other sculp­ture with a white patina depicted here and enti­tled “La porte de Paris”. Emmanuel Milani, direc­tor of the gallery explained, “the bronzes were cast in Bologna in Italy by the Ven­turi Arte foundry”. There are also ear­lier and more recent oil on can­vas paint­ings in the exhi­bi­tion dat­ing from 1994 to 2004, in addi­tion to his well-​known Bil­doRe­liefo works which char­ac­terise his art and are a mix­ture of car­toon art, art brut, naïve paint­ing and pho­tog­ra­phy.
The exhi­bi­tion can be seen until 9 June at the Milani Gallery (12 avenue du Verger).
