Description

Step inside "The Wrong Shop" art gallery: a sharp selection of exclusive posters that will appeal to fans of graphic and visual arts! Created by English designer Sebastian Wrong, the brand publishes drawings and prints by influential artists, designers and architects. These exceptional-quality limited, numbered edition prints are truly unique and affordable works of art. Loop posters are the work of French designer Pierre Charpin. These drawings represent, in line with his artistic training, the possibility of a direct and immediate approach to the world of forms. Because it’s first through drawing that a world emerges, appears before us. Suspended from the constraints of production, with no finality other than that imposed by their own impetus, the shapes designed by Pierre Charpin unfold in free play. A search, a movement of the hand and thought towards a form he doesn’t yet see, that he perhaps glimpses. This tension becomes, by the infinite repetition of the same action, by the chromatic variation of the same line or the same point, plastic power, internal dynamism which involves the eye of the spectator in the emergence of the form. Pierre Charpin on Loop: “Drawing is the starting point of all my design projects, but I always thought that it could also be an end in itself - what I call ‘draw to draw’. I attach great importance to this practice because it’s the link with my training and my training in visual arts. It's also the only time, as a designer, where I take full responsibility from start to finish. I switched to the large format of 700 x 1000 mm to give more autonomy to my drawings. It was at this point that I also started to consider the possibility of duplication. I was looking for a process by which the reproduced drawing, having lost its status as a unique work, is neither an exact reproduction nor a duplicate of the original, but rather an interpretation of it. For the Loop series, the original felt pen drawings were converted using a basic vector programme, then screen printed or digitally printed. These 'translated' drawings have a quality and a specificity that are specific to them, and if their interpretation remains close to the original, they become new, different objects in themselves.'' An artist by training, it was from the beginning of the 1990s that Pierre Charpin devoted himself significantly to the design of furniture and objects. His research is reflected in projects for the Design Gallery Milano and Galerie Kreo in Paris. Jointly, he collaborates for product design with design houses such as Post Design, Zanotta, Montina, Venini, La Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres. In 2004, he won the competition to design a water carafe, launched by the Société Anonyme de Gestion des Eaux de Paris, with the “Eau de Paris” carafe, and his “Triplo” vase, produced by Venini, figures in the selection for the Compasso d'Oro 2005. He was voted designer of the year 2005 by the Paris Furniture Fair. He holds many personal exhibitions. Several of his pieces are part of the collections of the FNAC (National Contemporary Art Fund), the George Pompidou Centre and the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris.
