THE PAINTINGS SECTION FROM DAVIS MUSEUM


What/who inspired the work?
Formally, I was inspired by the Gerhard Richter's blurred photo paintings from the 60s, who works by selecting photographs from family photo albums or books, magazines and newspaper clippings. After that, Richter projected and traced the images onto a canvas. In the process of recreating the photos he blurred the images, leaving the subjects unidentifiable.

What do you hope viewers will think?
I hope that viewers will know that I started in 2011 to create "The Paintings Section From Davis Museum". This set of works of art is divided into three different genres: portraits, still lifes and historical paintings. The portraits are about three artists who "created their own museums": Marcel Duchamp, Robert Filliou and Marcel Broodthaers. The still lifes are about the "museums" created by these artists: "Boîte-en-valise", "Le galerie légitime" and "Musée d'Art Moderne, Département des Aigles" (including some generic themes related to this concept: briefcases, eagles, pianos, etc). The historical paintings are based on the Art History artistic events of these three artists (and their works) that have been recorded in the past through photographs or films.

Why did you choose the medium?
I chose oil painting because it is a very flexible, sophisticated, glossy and durable medium that allows for a greater range of optical effects. For my paintings, I only use the best material: linen fabrics, essence of turpentine and linseed oil Blockx and Old Holland oil paintings.

This is the only section of The Davis Museum in which the works are for sale. Support this project by buying now a painting in Saatchi Art.
