Frederic Bouffandeau
Untitled 3


Born in France in 1966, emerging artist Frédéric Bouffandeau has been developing his personal direction, using an iconic form of the flower, since graduating from Beaux Arts in Paris, France. This basic form, imperatively shown through a variety of mediums, was determined based on its affinity with the basic vegetable, animal, and human cell. Bouffandeau’s choice of medium is vested in the possibilities offered by the unique properties of paper, canvas, neon, and aluminum and their ability to realize the fundamental message in his work: understanding the core of a color, the intricacies of a particular color and how it interacts with both other colors and the human perception. Colors relate and change each other, establishing a dynamic existence whose impression varies from person to person, explaining his need to consistently change mediums: sight becomes the essential and universal sense. Bouffandeau looks not only for the transparency of the color but for how it’s built up, for its essence, which exists without any applicable definition. Bouffandeau’s work also regards the use and relationship between the artist and the space: with his neon and installation work he specifically looks to apprehend a space. The spaces he creates, like Morellet, manipulate the original architecture and create an opening for something that did not previously exist. Though his neon works take on specific forms, by showing on the walls, floors, and ceilings, he becomes unhindered by the space. His fascination lies within the multiplication of a structure as seen through different media and how the structure consequently changes. Bouffandeau hopes to continue his work with neon and sees an opportunity to expand on his already brilliant foundations. He sees works using an increased sense of space and looks forward to working more directly with architecture projects and outdoor spaces.
