La Déchirure

A thin line.
A flatline.
An interruption.

Never expected, an interruption changes the flow and suddenly you’re swept away on an opposing surface.

La Déchirure or being ripped out from one universe to feel lost in a second, from a status quo into an unsettling state. Ghassan Zard’s La Déchirure focuses on the interruption we recently experienced. The works come from the in-between that follows the rupturing phenomenon.

It emphasizes the disruption.
It challenges gravity, inertia and surface tension.

The seven paintings that make La Déchirure reflect our actual: a fractured duality. Colors juxtapose on the canvas and don't intermingle; the worlds are inconsolable. The show is an openness to the precariousness, between reality and dreamlike of the possible.
