“To abstract means to subtract. Something is always taken away. Data is removed from matter. So what if abstraction is a movement towards information? What matters?” (Mousse Magazine, August, 2018)

Freedman Fitzpatrick, a contemporary art gallery in Los Angeles, will be displaying Nicolas Roggy’s exhibition Caught Between the Eye from February 10 until March 23, 2019. Roggy is a French artist that lives and works in Paris, so make sure you see his work while it is in LA.

Roggy’s paintings are simultaneously non-formulaic and very constructed, even complex to the point of reaching the point of absurdity. However, this complexity is intentional, adding layer upon layer to call into question the line between abstract and concrete, between fact and subjectivity.

Roggy has presented a myriad of solo exhibitions including: Upper Bodies, Sundogs, Paris (2018); VNH Gallery, Paris (2018); Seul À Table, Palette Terre, Paris (2016); Vous aimez bien sûr être nettoyé ? Comme tout le monde, Galerie Triple V, Paris (2015); Thick Pink, Stuffed Light, Martos Gallery, New York (2014). He has also been a part of group exhibitions including: The Weather Outside, Freedman Fitzpatrick, Paris (2018); Color Block, Triple V, Paris (2017); Le Berrython, Marcel Duchamp’s middle school, Chateauroux (2017); Carte blanche à Richard Fauguet, FRAC Limousin, Limoges (2017); Der Verdienst. 2014-2017, Oracle, Berlin (2017); Figurative Geometry, Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia (2016); Le Mérite, Treize, Paris (2016); Aftermodernism in the Hamptons, Nicole Ripka Gallery, Watermill (2016); Pièces Meublés, Galerie Patrick Seguin, Paris (2016), The Painter of Modern Life, Anton Kern Gallery, New York (2015), La solitude, Astrup Fearnley Museet, Oslo (2014), Post-Op, Galerie Perrotin, Paris (2014), and Rien faire et laisser rier, Rodolphe Janssen, Brussels (2014).

Additionally, Nicolas Roggy’s work is in the collections at the CNAP Collection, Société Générale Collection, Fondazione Maramotti Collection, FRAC Limousin, and FRAC Pays de la Loire. A recipient of the Jean-François Prat prize, Paris (2018), Roggy has also received recognition for his work.
