    Claude Tétot is a French abstract artist whose work expresses harmony in disharmony by exploring the enigmatic unity that can exist between seemingly disparate elements, such as graphic patterns and gestural markings.
    Tétot is inspired by the search for unexpected harmonies. He could be placed in an aesthetic lineage with Hans Hofmann and Shirley Jaffe.
    Like Hofmann, Tétot relishes the hand painted mark, and is masterful at expressing depth by allowing contrasts between hues and tints to speak for themselves.
    Like Jaffe, Tétot employs the white ground of his surfaces as if it is an expression of form, and he fearlessly embraces cacophony, revealing the strange harmonies that exist within apparent contradictions. Tétot then extends beyond the traditions of his Modernist influences. He simplifies his approach, creating compositions that speak abstractly, though directly, to universal themes, such as: chaos vs. order; the hand-drawn mark vs. the graphic pattern; and what is present vs. what is absent. At its most poetic, his work expresses unity between dissimilar elements; it finds beauty in discord.
    Claude Tétot employs different mediums and methods to achieve different types of attitudes in his compositions. Whether he is making a drawing or a painting, he may employ something like fluorescent acrylics to create a graphic pattern, a hard edged line or a geometric shape. Next, he may use oil paint and traditional brushes to create an expressive, gestural line, or a painterly field of color.
    The fluctuations between opacity and translucency, and flatness and luminosity, are important to the personality of the work. He has developed the technique of surface preparation so that nuanced differences can be expressed in his white backgrounds. The seemingly empty space on is in fact filled with subtle gradations that emphasizes relationships between colors, and adds depth to the spatial relationships between the various pictorial elements of the composition.
    Tétot has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums in France, Luxembourg, and Germany. In addition to private collections, his work is in the permanent collections of the National Foundation for Contemporary Art in Paris and the Regional Contemporary Art Fund, Auvergne.
