Born in 1992, graduate of the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Paris in 2016, the visual artist Alexandre Lenoir works between Paris and Casablanca from his own photos.
Equipped with an overhead projector, he projects them onto his canvas and paints over them with a singular approach. Each part of the image is thus masked by large strips of adhesive tape laid randomly, then painted and repainted, taped again. "As I work, the canvas becomes thicker, darker and heavier". It is then that Alexandre Lenoir decides to remove these superimpositions, leaving it to chance to operate and to the painting to decide: "The painting makes itself" he says.
I want Art Shortlist to help me acquire a work by Alexandre Lenoir
