Supernova black paintings | 2001 - 2015

Black supernova paintings by Amaury Dubois

The "Supernova" black paintings are part of a collection of conceptual and semi-figurative art works. Behind this astronomical dialect is hidden all the phenomena resulting from the explosion of a star. The abstract artwork reflects this blast of energy coming from the light and its reflections. Seen from Earth, a supernova often appears as a new star when it is actually the disappearance of the latter. Life, ever present and yet so fragile, suffering the risk of extinction, takes over the darkness. A fragile and ambiguous border between life and death... A work in colours and contours on a black and white background, where the shapes reveal the abstract power of the message, these black oil on canvas paintings are delicately suspended awaiting their fate.
