Until August 15
Parisian painter Alexandre d’Huy depicts the protagonists of war as we rarely see them—on the ground. In this series, began in 2014 and premiering on Collectionair, the artist uses the portrait format with a tight framing, resulting in the aestheticization of these destructive masses—masses that seem autonomous as no human figure is detected. Certain paintings are almost pixelated, aerial views from the eye of technology, a perspective impossible for man to experience—blending rural landscapes into a form of camouflage. The paintings of the artist reach to the core of the issue of war, cold but possessing a rich texture in an abstract language. Alexandre d’Huy paints ghostly landscapes that highlight reality and goes beyond it, venturing into the realm of the unreal.
