Introduction

Born in France 1967. Lives and works in Paris.

Fragile and monumental, original and usurper, exuberant and minimalist, Ivan Fayard’s painting work is fragmented like a kaleidoscope, a broken mirror that he would have stuck back together too quickly.
The creation of his various cycles, kinds of juxtaposition of temporalities and multiple identities, is haunted by the history of art and visited by incessant contemporary intrusions. Because it is porous, permeable, his painting cannot content itself with a specific artistic signature. These “shards of identity”, these incomplete disguises drawn from the rubbish bins of abstraction and figuration are aspirations, questionings and reflections engaged upon, rather than affirmations, be they peremptory or guided by an ideological je ne sais quoi. He prefers to play, to circulate between different artistic moments so as to dislodge the issues at stake among them. The bulk of his work questions what his share of personal involvement is and what are those, invented, able to be part of a work that he wishes to be polymorphous.
By asking himself questions about assimilation, memory and specific experience, one anticipates in his artistic practice a disturbing questionning consisting of masks behind which he may hide himself, kinds of invented artistic identities.
