Artist: David Peacock

Title: ‘Untitled’

Does the artist’s unusual surname of “Peacock” explain his taste for colour?

A collection of shades that work together and yet are also diverse, symbolizing the blending of air and water, fire and earth. It is a dream of plenitude.

This “unnameable” and very free work reveals happy colours layered in multiple horizons, which combine jazzy and oriental tones based on a rainbow pattern.

The work conveys the diversity of a universe that is open to the sensibilities of all individuals, who are seeking out harmony in their thoughts.

Yves Charnay  was born in 1942 in Saint-Chamond, Loire. He is Professor at l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (ENSAD) in Paris since 1969, and teaches light and colour in scenography and architectural design. He founded a teaching programme based on the theatricality of sites, called “Spectacular events”.

He is involved in architecture, theatre, cinema, publishing, and industrial design. His art work is exhibited extensively internationally and is displayed in many public, private and corporate international collections.
