Biography:
Born in 1962 in La Châtre, Richard Fauguet lives and works in Châteauroux. Since his debut at the School of Fine Arts in Bordeaux, the artist has proposed a protean work – drawings, collages, rubbings, sculptures – that often works in series or periods guided by the use of a specific material. We recall the contact paper silhouettes, burnt sheets, glass installations, or more recently a series of postcards diverted with the help of pouring spouts. Richard Fauguet combines a variety of universes and imaginings that may seem antagonistic at first sight. The great masters of art history, his so called “Buddies”, are often summoned (Picasso, Degas, Giacometti, etc.) and forced to get involved with some figures issued from popular culture and our collective imagination (Mr. Clean or Darth Vader for example). Using simple materials such as tape, clay, empty shells and found objects, Richard Fauguet revisits the so-called classical genres, portraiture and landscapes alike. He proposes an aesthetic renewal that blurs boundary-lines and goes beyond the traditional divide between high and low culture.

His work is represented in many collections, Regional Funds for Contemporary Art, and public institutions such as : the National Museum of Modern Art / Donation Collection Florence and Daniel Guerlain – Centre Pompidou, Paris, the National Contemporary Art Fund of Paris, the MAC/VAL, Vitry-sur-Seine and les Abattoirs, Toulouse.

Several exhibitions have recently been dedicated to him, including Argos, Collégiale Saint-Martin, Angers (2018), Bivalve & Monocouche, Art : Concept, Paris (2015), Vivement Demain, MAC/VAL, Vitry-sur- Seine (2012); Selon Arrivage, Art : Concept, Paris (2011); Ni vu ni Connu, Frac Limousin, Limoges (2011); Pas vu, pas pris, Frac Ile‑de-France, Paris (2009).
