Ma Galerie is offering an antagonistic exhibition by choosing to show together two artists who are total opposites: Victor Vasarely and Sam Francis. “Order and Disorder” is a phrase that condenses an apparently unsolvable contradiction between the orthonormed on the one hand and the indeterminate on the other.
Two conceptions, two “visions” that are the opposite of each other: each of the two artists has a heritage sourced from two different cultures. Vasarely, trained by followers of the Bauhaus, maintained a programmatic rigor even in the wavelike deformations of his reticular systems. Conversely, Sam France practiced “suggestive colour”. The random was his only system. Where Victor Vasarely sought to apply to a painting the laws of optical science, Sam Francis abstracted himself from the rules by throwing pure colour onto an infinitely white space.
