MAURICE RENOMA “Modographe”
January 3rd – March 31st 2015
[Opening reception January 3rd, 7 – 10 pm]
Spontaneous, intuitive, sensual, provocative… Maurice Renoma’s photographs are a subtle mix that the artist manipulates with grace and boldness. World-renowned stylist, stage designer, and photographer, he is an accomplish artist. From his childhood in the post World War Two Paris to his immensely famous high fashion store, Renoma represents the blessed years of the Ye-Ye movement in France: full of airiness, joy, glamour. Maurice Renoma revived France’s drowning fashion scene, turning Paris into the style landmark it is today.
Besides his undeniable role in fashion that allowed him to cater to icons such as Salvador Dali, Serge Gainsbourg, Picasso, Brigitte Bardot, Andy Warhol, Karl Lagerfed, and many more, Maurice Renoma is the creator of his own artistic movement: “Modographe” (fashiongrapher).
For him, everything is an art form. The artist merges fashion, the human body, and photography to create a hybrid body of work.
Maurice Renoma cherishes the use of white and black 400 Asa photographic films that give unique textures to his prints and accentuates his cinematic style.
The exhibition “Modographe” at Alberto Linero Gallery will present several photographs, mostly from the 90’s, but also some avant-garde designed furniture. Capturing his spontaneity and sense of freedom, the gallery will display some of his most brilliant work through the 2,000 square space.
Maurice Renoma’s work is not only aesthetically pleasing; it is also conceptually brilliant and incredibly well executed.
“Modographe” will be, without any doubts, the event not to miss in Miami in early 2015.
Please join us for this interesting retrospective of Maurice Renoma. The exhibition will highlight the work of an artist who sees fashion as an art form and who knows how to capture the charm of a distracted eye glanced.
Alberto Linero Gallery is located in the heart of Miami’s Wynwood Arts District, and shows work by established and emerging artists from all over the world.
