Guillaume ALBY, aka REMED
Born in Paris on December 30, 1978. Now lives in Madrid.
“I discovered the painting in a studio in my city, Lille in 1995. I have worked for a long time inside. I have always loved the intimacy and the silence of a studio.
However, I quickly felt the need to go beyond the limits imposed by the framework, but also to show my work.
That’s why I started to interact with my environment by pasting stickers expressing my ideas then messages or witnesses on the walls using sprays. I finally got the chance to paint huge walls in really special places, beeing as much as possible aware of the context in which my paintings will evolve.
On the other hand, I continued my work on canvas. First I played with the image and the text, creating or interpreting icons often associated with letters or words. My paintings were composed at the same time as the ideas took shape. They were already the seeds of the next, which ripened together would have a new meaning.
Today, thanks to the experience of the street which led me to synthesize my creations, and after having understood that the “spectator” does not give as much time as I dared to imagine at the observation of the work, I constantly simplifies the result of my work. So the spectator can actually feel something, to talk to him without my physical presence is required.
I create rhymes of colors, of shapes or of sounds to express an emotion, a feeling, or the evolution of a thought.
I paint like we write a diary, a book of inventions, or a philosophical corpus. Each time, I do my inventory.
Art is for me the sincere union of science and Soul.
I live what I feel, I paint what I live.
