Vincent Magni

Claude Le Guenedal Claude Le Guenedal | French

Both a painter and a sculptor, Vincent Magni moves confidently from one medium to another, examining the subjective interpretation of reality, making sure that the free-standing, slender and carefully measured forms never interfere with the contrasting fluidity of his brushstrokes on the canvas. In both fields, the dominant theme of Vincent Magni is the status of the figure, expressed through his familiar poses, the oval of his silent faces, his inclination to dreaming and his sensetive authority. The perception of Vincent Magni is narrative in sculpture and allusive in painting. Vincent Magni first works by inutiation, inspired by an initial impulse, avoiding the perverse codes of knowledge which could alter the sincerity of his approach to the material or the impact of his brushstrokes. Vincent Magni knows, as Gaston Bachelard has already pointed out, that the image in all its simplicity has no need of knowledge; it is the reflection of a native conscience... before thought.

When Vincent Magni paints, he is not as playful as when he sculpts. Starting with a monochromic abstract image in modulated tones, to which he adds layers of lightly pigmented reliefs, he soon finds that his gestures become rigid, expressing forms for form's sake, with an absence of any identifiable images. Gradually, an urgent need to portray an organic reality that corresponds to the flow of his emotion leads him to place schematic silhouettes in the background, from which appear geometric forms, along with a burst of stains, tufts, splashes and drips. The female figures of Vincent Magni seem to have been snatched from the shadows, almost by surprise; they are portrayed from behind, in profile or sometimes full face, allowing only a glimpse of their evanescent morphology through vague contours. With his undefined environment in the fields, the anecdote lies in the suggestion, in areas where silence is as eloquant as whispered confidences. "Something happens that we cannot see, behind pathways we can only guess at," says Vincent Magni. "Thoughts leap forth, worlds come together. Day, night? Men, women? It doesn't matter, as long as there is emotion."
