AUTRES ÉCRITS SUR NICOLAS MALDAGUE

On a Notebook Sketch by Nicolas Maldague
The scribbled ridge of eyebrows, slatted nose,
the mouth a slab pressing the crumbling chin :
it is the face I thought long ago erased :
the child rocking alone, features screed
to music, or the school boy, thrashing free
from meshes of obedience : but here
on this small sheet of loose-leaf, torn
from a perforated note-book, pinned to cork
in my Andalusian studio, his frenzy
fresh – registered in pencil, charcoal. Pink
incarnadines one cheek as if a slap –
its shock, its devastation –
were tatooed ; the hands – no, hooves – rear up
in terror or rage just as they did –
not high enough. The head is eerie
as a mask – but comic – two zip-codes long
pivoting on the spinal helix, exposed.
Nicolas Maldague, I would believe
that though we never met before your eye
and art conspired to reveal
a confluence between the past and now
under this langorous sun of southern Spain.
It’s stillness that joined us – an afternoon –
me reading on the terrace, you sunbathing
but poised, alert inside, a hawk or snake
waiting for a landscape to cohere. I almost
believe time hesitates, some permanent truth’s
been glimpsed accidentally in this timeless place.
But reading these words, studying your sketch
I see the lie : this is your face, not mine,
the coupling is only fantasy and no one
passing by this page would find a trace
of youth. If we illuminate an ideal
visage from within, pulsing like sun
whatever guise we wear, if we are born
faced with a destiny or character,
then character is drawn not in the face
but in the gorge you’ve stuffed with two
liverish nodes, islands fused to strangle
the white air channel. It cannot feed
the speckled, gargling heart, wedged
in the jet collar between hump and bib.
And destiny – it floats, a blank, above
the brow’s shoal – it is the counter-
clockwise arch designating skull,
ebbing to new moon at the fontanel,
which you might have etched to nothingness
simply to contrast the seasonless
heat of Spain, a place I’d never been.
Philip Brady, american writer

« In a more prolix register, but assimilable, let’s point out the NM’s gigantic barrister’s speech, So that History isn’t a Sitting-Room Parrot anymore, a skilful compromise of two technics : marouflage and acrylic painting »
Jean-Claude Louvat, journalist, Eure Inter Press, (1994)

« NM is a precise and talented drawer, as eloquent than mysterious in his printmaking »
J.F. Bi, journalist, La voix du Nord, Galerie Godar (1996)

« Henceforth NM wears glasses inside his head, his fur gleams and his heart is a strategy-free percussion »
Rebekah Berger, peintre

« NM seems to be very interested in the Hindu civilizations, and in the ones of Asia and America too. As far as we pay attention to several pieces’ denomination and allusions to ancient presumed wisdoms or extraordinary capacities of perception. The One who really sees can refer to shamanism, Spirit of Smoke to the amerindian calumet – among others. NM questions human destiny, through historical, social and present-day’s perspectives. Intifada Red evocates contemporary conflicts, Us-Band and its echoe, Why-If, illustrate a couple principle. By the way, let’s call attention to the engraver’s propensity for anglophonic plays on words. The maliciousness of the words, together with the vigourous and compact graphism of his faces and silhouettes allows a two-triggers reading. »
F.B., journalist, Le pays roannais (1998)
