A visit is a must!
Amaury Dubois, an artist from Lille, has entered, thanks to his talent, into the artistic milieu of painters. He is preparing his first solo exhibition in 2011 under the auspices of the Wable Gallery (Lille Old Town), with its exhibition HQ at the Lille Métropole. An ideal setting in which to show to the general public, but also to connoisseurs and his collectors, his latest pictorial works, over a period of one month. On this occasion, Amaury Dubois will present one of his works "Lighthouse": a re-interpretation of the famous Picasso painting, "Pêche de nuit à Antibes". A unique pictorial reinterpretation which is definitely worth a visit.
The kick-off of this exhibition will be marked by a vernissage on Thursday, February 10th, 2011. An opportunity to enjoy and share a special moment with guests and media professionals. At 7.00 p.m.: reception and cocktails accompanied by jazz music and an ambience made bright by the colours of the artist. (Press access from 6.00 p.m.)
DEVELOPMENT AND PHILOSOPHY
In a workshop full of graffiti and completed fluid and colourful canvases, Amaury Dubois - the story of a native of northern France who depicts life in motion. An uncompromising painter born in 1980, who became the originator of a new genre: "Courbisme", the beginning of a lifelong passion on which he has worked full time for 10 years now.
Due to his permanent presence in several art galleries, his works now adorn many collections in Europe and abroad. (France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Portugal, Brazil...). He created especially for "Mercedes-Benz" the painted bodywork of a "Smart" (a single car, signed in 2008).
You will doubtless see the influence of Surrealism tinged with Cubism but Amaury Dubois speaks of "Courbisme." Because there's nothing straight in reality. Because he took it upon himself to destroy straight lines. Because rebellion has nothing to do with straightness. Because his style is fuelled by a passion for all that is fluid, liquid, watery. A pictorial summary of the way he sees the world. A concentration of references...
Tuesday 2.30 to 7.00 p.m. - From Wednesday to Saturday 11.30/2.30 - 3.45/7.30 Wable Gallery - 4 Rue Thiers 59000 Lille (at the intersection of Esquermoise/rue Royal)
"In the Wable gallery, Amaury Dubois paints the invisible around us. He loves large formats. You will be swept up by his paintings of undulating plant shapes in the Wable gallery, Amaury Dubois paints the invisible around us. Flamboyant colours that reach toward the light.
Some seem to be struggling to get there. "It's a metaphor for life, from birth to death, the artist explains. Man is like a plant. In each of us, a spark of life materializes an instinct that drives us to seek the path to happiness. "Curious about everything, the creator of "Courbisme" draws his inspiration from fields as diverse as architecture, botany, astronomy, history and music. "In reality, nothing is straight. "His passion for all that is fluid, liquid, watery, nourishes his style and enriches his palette.
"This exhibition presents other aspects of my work, more advanced. The light is more intense, the shadows stronger: I love it! ", says the painter looking at Pêche de nuit à Antibes, a reinterpreted Picasso of which he is very proud. "Some sketches in India ink, some pastels and charcoals which have never been shown! "C. D.-C. (CLP)"
Painting the invisible. This is what Amaury Dubois is trying to do. An artist from Lille who is currently exhibiting at the Annie Wable gallery.
"Courbisme" at the Annie Wable gallery
He is showing his oil paintings in which are the forces which guide each of us are embedded.
"We are all guided by something which cannot be described. I try to physically represent this force", says Amaury Dubois. The Lille painter has been exhibiting, since February 10th, twenty of his paintings in the Annie Wable gallery. The artist speaks of "Courbisme" to describe his style. Shapes in bright colours try to "catch the light, to grow, to expand." Multiple curves are spread over the canvas.
The artist tries to represent life in motion, as if time had frozen. With his works, he tries to convey a message: "Nothing is fixed, you must provide yourself the means to have the life you dream of. There is nothing worse than wasting your life". Different forms intertwine and show this sometimes tortuous road, which can lead us to our dreams. "We are trying to move forward, sometimes we turn away from the right path, but we always take it again".
At the age of 30, the artist has exhibited in many galleries in France and abroad: Belgium, Luxembourg, Portugal etc. "It's like a game of chess, each move is anticipated. I start painting when I am sure to succeed." He mixes his colours very carefully. An "exhausting" job which gives him no respite. Each brush stroke is carefully thought out. "When I start a painting, it is already finished. "For the first time, he is showing in the Vieux-Lille gallery, sketches in ink, pastel or charcoal, different stages of his work.
