Oil and acrylic on canvas

Xavier Drong is a painter based in Paris. Drong portrays the multidimensional character of abstract forms that suggest the dynamic, angular and biomorphic. He is a former student of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Paris. Within the limits posed by two-dimensional surfaces, Drong expands on the architectonic, suggesting mechanical movement that also exposes the material saturation of paint as the medium traces and settles into the painted surface. Narrative, moreover, is entirely absent as the titles of each piece are different combinations of letters, highlighting the necessity of form over and above the literal.
