Guillaume Bottazzi, painting on fabric

“Sometimes Guillaume Bottazzi casts aside a linen canvas in favour of a softer, even silkier fabric, stretched to the extreme, the tint of which serves as a background. Like Matisse, he has understood that the texture of a fabric has this capacity to radiate everything while inducing the impression of an infinite space. […] On it Bottazzi leaves traces of tints, often white, always pale, as if the essential thing were to safeguard the breath of the gesture. But he is not a calligrapher. His hand manages more a caress than a movement. […] Sometimes the whiteness is obtained by a light touch of plaster. Sometimes it is an oil colour that is laid down as a glaze.”

Guillaume Bottazzi - Exhibition at Artiscope Gallery in Brussels

Artiscope Gallery, Brussels 2014

“An invitation to travel. The art of Guillaume Bottazzi invites us to take a voyage, reinventing our environment, imposing itself politically, socially and aesthetically as much as it does in the urban fabric. Bottazzi is the guest of the galerie Artiscope in Brussels until 4 July.”

Guillaume Bottazzi - French May - 2016
Le French May, Hong Kong, 2016

“The first public presentation in China for this artist who is well-known to the people of Japan, a country that is inspiring [to the artist] and inspired [by his work]. The artist’s Hong Kong exhibition offers a veritable journey into the strange. It allows the visitor to move through an unreal universe that appeals to his imagination and creativity. The paintings have no titles, intentionally so as not to guide the spectator and thus allow him to lose his way.”

Goldstrom Gallery, New York, 2003

“The immersive tools provided by abstract art allow Bottazzi to create ethereal shapes that, as if they were stream, are blurred and blended with the surface. The support is an integral part of the piece and gives off the idea of infinity.”
