Browsing through the works of Cédric Rivrain is to experience a sensual dialog between the artist and his subject, between the images themselves and the experience of an indescribable grace, of an intimacy that always surfaces… The gaze emerges from the paintings, from the drawings, invariably, vaporous and yet so penetrating. Hazy, persistent. — Rodrigue Fondeviolle*
An exhibition of new paintings by Rivrain, including richly imaginative portraits of lovers, friends, and colleagues—Fondeviolle, Juliana Huxtable, Emily Sundblad, Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Jade Guanaro Kuriki-Olivo (Puppies Puppies), and Oscar Tuazon—is in its final week in Paris.
