MATHIEU LÉVESQUE | LES ISOLÉS
12 November 2020 to 12 December 2020
If some painter's actions are underlying their aesthetic and conceptual intentions, they are also determined by practical and material factors. Particular and recurring gestures, generators of styles, palettes and subsequently of the corpus of works, are often the result of a succession of habits, tics even errors. It's in this perspective that the most recent Mathieu Lévesque's research is oriented around this ambiguity between the painter's know-how and laissez-faire. While it's common in the pictorial practice to repaint and reject paintings, Mathieu Lévesque dwells on this precis action radicality which for him underlines the framework's limits and accentuates materiality.
