Claudio Malacarne, Children, Oil on canvas, 50×60 cm

Why go to the sea when you can find it in le Marais, at the Menouar gallery, rue du Parc-Royal? Here, we dive directly into the Big Blue with the work of Malacarne, a post-impressionist artist of reflection, light and water whose brush caresses the surface of the sea.

Claudio Malacarne, The Cave, Oil on canvas, 80×80 cm

With his “bathing” series, the Italian painter (from Mantua, not far from Verona, not very far from Venice either) throws us into the deep end. Here we are on vacation, or else, immersed in our childhood memories. These are happy times. Bodies are distorted in the reflections of the swimming pool and the Mediterranean is pierced by a burning sun.

Laughter bursts out. It's irresistible, a bit nostalgic, soothing too. Reason why, no doubt, once we have immersed ourselves in this Big Blue, we struggle to come out of the Maraisian gallery – which is also that of Françoise Nielly, whose portraits are in the same colorful vein.

“Malacarne's art is classical painting, or rather Fauvism, but it is also contemporary with its almost fluorescent chromatic palette which, moreover, has been brought up to date by Françoise Nielly,” observes gallery owner Rabiaâ Menouar who has worked with the Italian for several years. As a bonus, some works from his previous series are on display: animals, landscapes, portraits. With always the same extraordinary mastery.

Until May 24, 2024.

Susumu Shingu, praise of slowness

At the Jeanne Bucher Jaeger gallery, a century-old space at the bottom of a courtyard, around thirty drawings and kinetic sculptures, moving works by the Japanese artist Susumu Shingu, are displayed. It was a trend in vogue in the 1950s, led by artists such as the Athenian Takis or the Brazilian Soto.

Oysters and fish: P'tit Mousse knows his job

Why bother going to Wepler or La Coupole, when there is P'tit Mousse? Both an oyster bar and a fish restaurant, this address on Rue Rambuteau advantageously replaces the Parisian brasseries on Place Clichy and Boulevard Montparnasse.
