    Pachwork oeuvres

    Many artists use paper or cardboard to express the full range of their art or highlight particular aspects of their art.

    Some artists only use paper for part of their work. In this site we will show all their explorations, researches, evolutions, which represent the richness of their know-how and their expression.

    In these "artist portraits", a few files include only a brief panegyric description of the artist and one or two photos of their work found on the web.
    We would be pleased if these artists could be present in a more significant way by a more complete presentation and by a real gallery containing significant works representing all their works, including those that do not include paper or cardboard, to show the scope of their art and creativity.

    We invite them to contact us by email or the CONTACT form.

    His work is amazing. His drawings are first made vectorially and are inspired by Gothic monuments of Oriental ornamentation. He is a pioneer in this technique: drawing and cutting layer by layer.

    In a former life he was a professor of plastic arts and painter.
    In his artworks the characters were already connected by thread or bands of colors.
    He painted complex figures on canvas and paper mounted, expressionistic, trapped in the tracery, ropes, rings, ribbons, little by little, on the canvas, began to cross.
    At these tortured artworks have succeeded in the second half of the 1970s, the first braids.
    Following an accident in his life he became in 1997 to are ODON: anagram of "nodo" knot tracery in Italian. I was looking for to simplify Houdoin. In 1997, a Norman friend tells me of the Odon river running through Caen and I feel very Norman! It also happens that I also greatly admire Odon of Cluny, the second Abbot of Cluny. Moreover, Odon is already in Houdouin and this new name is formed with round letters. Now I only creates circles... "
    His art is moving at the same time to weave the paper: paper for its availability, and for its plastics and tactile qualities.
    Kraft paper is painted and folded, twisted, flattened, pasted, and at the end braided.
    Weaving represents well the complexity of our world and life.
    The flexibility and plasticity of the paper related to the infinite possibilities of the types of weaves.
    ODON offer a way to produce artworks of the most surprising and diverse mode.
    He chose this way as the first braiding art by essence.
