Do you like the drawing? Would you like to discover a young artist who has mastered this technique perfectly? Then go to the 22,48m2 gallery to meet a singular and prolific work. From the invention of architecture to the inspiration of landscapes in aerial views, Géraud Soulhiol proposes in his drawings the creation of a new world. The term Arcadia, the title given to the exhibition devoted to him today at the 22.48 m² gallery, evokes the strange, the suspended, the unknown. And for good reason: it refers to a utopia, the one created by the draftsman. With four series, a variety of representations and small formats, it is a game of perception that takes place before our eyes. Each drawing, in small format, impresses by its meticulousness and sense of detail. We approach, attracted by the form, we are surprised that what is drawn does not exist, while certain motifs push us to interpret what we see. The circle painted on the glass that covers the drawing in Mirages acts like a magnifying lens; the cranes in the triptych Movement No. 1 are barely distinguishable; references to pre-Columbian cathedrals or pyramids are summoned and yet a particular geography is born before our eyes. Géraud Soulhiol disturbs our perception, ready to plunge us into his imagined and imaginary worlds.
