FIRST ARTS & PRE-COLOMBIAN ARTS

The extra-Western duet

I think it’s neither possible nor realistic to attempt an objective portrait of Serges Reynes.  Thus, the following lines won’t take such a risk.

What is confounding from the outset is a contradiction. We can feel a man who had been around and everywhere to feel on his deep dermis the Cultures he specialized into, and yet his voice and vision staid like those of a student who had just bought his first ticket for the far side of the world.

Let’s be honnest, his spontaneity, his empathy and his purviews that go from Africa, Ocenia, the Himalaya and the Pre-Columbian universes, are a challenge for an extra-Western art market full of sanitized personalities and valuations.

Coming from Africa, Oceania or America, the art objects of the Primitive Arts department open the World’s doors through a wide range of items.

Rarity, aesthetics and the high quality of the materials reflect the infinite richness of far-off lands such as sub-Saharan Africa, Melanesia, Polynesia …

Fabrics, sculptures, jade or embossed metal mixed with stones (turquoise …) or adorned terracottas reunite in the Pre-Columbian productions, from the Olmecs to the Incas and Aztecs, through Mayas or Mochicas …

Pre-Columbian Arts

In this area, you shall not be addressing before you have proven to be legitimate.

It has to reassure so much to conceal. That’s how.

Another skill Serge has is, precisely, to uncover human talents. And it has to be recognized that choose Romain Béot to lead the Primitive Arts department, whose workforce come with a rare meticulousness, was a great inspiration.

The energies released by Romain, the gripping tension that inhabit every Druid, has been pacified.

Collections and collectors can now receive the fast and relevant valuations this extra-Western duet deliver.
