Guillaume BressonGuillaume Bresson
Counter to television reports, Guillaume Bresson portrays a scene from contemporary history that is representative of an urban violence scene.
Text by Stéphanie Katz
In contrast to the painful realism of televised reports, the painter Guillaume Bresson portrays.
In his paintings, he mobilizes the great classical tradition and puts his artistic culture at the service of expression. He does not hesitate to divert the paintings of the great masters like Caravaggio or Nicolas Poussin, nor to play with the codes of the sacred.
Like the best, he is first and foremost an artist of composition, arrangement, and space. This space, often bare, adds to the dramaturgy, as well as his remarkable work on the light. In his scenes of settlement at the bike chain or beating in a city car park, Bresson shows violence first because it is body movement, epic choreography.
As a painter of his time, he represents a time devoid of heroes.
This monographic catalog reproduces the most recent works by Guillaume Bresson, exhibited for the first time at the Galerie Nathalie Obadia.
A critical essay by Stephanie Katz, semiologist and teacher accompanies this book.
