“In the early 2000s, Claude Gilli chose to return to his favorite work, cut wood, to bring back his pleasure of coloring feelings and memories. It was during this period that he created this series in homage to love, to life, to his pleasure, to surprise us… “.
(Michel Roudillon, Press kit of the exhibition POP LOVE – Fire of Love, LOFT gallery, Feb. 2018)
A universal symbol of life and love in the popular imagination, the heart has a unique visual and emotional power. CLAUDE GILLI has presented this series “Fire of Love” with intensely colored compositions in relief, brilliant and smooth. Play on words, play on light, play on the abyss. Lively and vibrant, these cut-out hearts induce a notion of depth in the pictorial space, reinforced by the light of the flames that come to caress them. In “L’amour fou” (Crazy love), the hearts multiply and ignite, proving once again that despite the difficulties Claude Gilli had to face all his life, he never stopped creating the works with a certain magic in an imperishable quest for an ideal of happiness.
