Modernism opens its first one-person exhibition of works by French artist Philippe Gronon

Modernism is presenting its first one-person exhibition of works by French artist Philippe Gronon. In Versos, his first series working in color, Gronon has photographed the backside of paintings by modern masters, presenting each work at actual size. Since the late 1980s Philippe Gronon has been developing a body of work with a view camera. From shutter release to print, he has combined the specific resources of gelatin silver and digital processes in accordance with the planned result. His subjects have been those that have a function of physical or mental transition, of exchange, passage, or communication (elevator doors, X-ray plates, blackboards, lithographic stones, etc.). Working in black and white, each object was photographed frontally, filling the whole image, eliminating any context, anecdote, or picturesqueness.
