"Cobalt Violet"
by sabine7 / January 14, 2006


French painter Paul Raguénès does not define his paintings as monochromes, despite all appearances. The surface may look to be a monochrome, but beneath this lies a polychromy. Raguénès applies bitumen first to his canvas, then layers oils and pigments, by brush and by hand. His colours are usually reds and blues and purples, often approaching black, and just as often seeming to be variations of one dark colour. Most effective are installations of Raguénès’ work, blocks of colour against white walls.
