Gérard Garouste - On the way
"In their present form, from the moment they were numbered, my notebooks became optimistic, that is to say, linked to projects: exhibition, sculpture, series, installation, theatre production. A notebook can last two or three years. It follows me everywhere."
This monograph was published on the occasion of the exhibition "Gérard Garouste. En chemin" in 20215 and presented at the Marguerite and Aimé Maeght Foundation in Saint-Paul de Vence. In addition to the paintings and sculptures that retrace his career and his influences, drawn from his biography as well as from the great sacred and secular texts, this monograph presents numerous unpublished notebooks by the artist. These reveal in pencil Gérard Garouste's laboratory, his questioning, his research, his learning of Hebrew and his understanding of the Talmud and the Midrash.
