or how to let the imagination build the image I can have of reality.
When I look at these paintings, I think of the deep colours that relax me there, in front of me, in these small-format paintings, but also of the tests that have used all these abstract or even cubic forms.
I tell myself that I can see what I want in these tests as in any painting, according to my history, my mood and how I feel when I think about it.
As a mirror of art history where I can believe that there is no history, no before and no continuity, I can also tell myself that I can interpret everything because everything seems interpretable.
Is that true?
Not so sure.
There is my feeling and the history of the artist, his teaching and our time.
What I like about #sebastianblack is to simply put on a plastic form the questioning I see and which, of course, only involves my point of view 😉
Is everything really relative today? Or are things linked and connected in this way between them and between us do they make sense? A meaning that gives me perspective on my time, on my life choices and especially on my possible certainties in this world.
When I walk around here, like nothing, from one painting to another, among a few drawings and these canvases rounded in their lines, almost feminine and therefore terribly sensitive, that’s what I think of…
I hope you like Sebastian’s work too?
