Luxembourg, 20th – 21st century, male.

Born 1946, in Luxembourg.

Painter (mixed media), collage artist, illustrator.

Robert Brandy studied in Luxembourg and Aix-en-Provence. From the first, his style tended towards the Abstract, his technique being resolutely and analytically mixed. Subsequently these two tendencies grew even more pronounced. The mixed technique, which had its own characteristic fluidity, became more complex with collage and the enclosure of some paintings in casings. The abstract expression hardened into a fluent expertise, pictorial deftness employing smears and running paint, and light coloration. Some of his paintings acquire a sense of gravity thanks to sophisticated use of pigment as matter and denser colours....

Catherine M. Grant

(b Paris, after 1945).

French performance and installation artist, painter, bookmaker, furniture and interior furnishings designer. Chaimowicz moved to England as a child, studying at Ealing College of Art (1963–5), Camberwell College of Art (1965–8) and the Slade School of Art (1968–70). Whilst completing his MA at the Slade, Chaimowicz decided to abandon painting, and started to make performance work, such as Celebration? Real Life (1972; performed at the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham and Gallery House, London). For the duration of each show, Chaimowicz lived within the domestic space that he had created, serving coffee to visitors to the gallery. His work during the 1970s and early 1980s concentrated on performances in imaginary, idealised domestic spaces, with fragmented narratives and symbolic actions. Partial Eclipse (1980–82) consisted of Chaimowicz walking in a figure of eight in front of and behind a screen on which slides of his apartment/studio were projected, whilst a female voice recounted fragments of meetings, situations and relationships (see ...
