A painter who defies sharpened curiosity, Mathieu Rousseau develops a technique over time that gives a singular character to all his work. Bright juxtaposed colours, textures and powerful gestures emerge from his paintings like a whiplash.
With DISTORSION, the artist expresses his vision of the identity of man living in a society punctuated by information technology. Hybrid images that illustrate the distortion between reality and virtuality, evoking the complexity of human relationships. Sometimes human, sometimes animal, a being occupies the central place of all his work, putting forward the intrinsic power in each of us. Through a set of codes and symbols of his own, Mathieu Rousseau takes up the challenge of transmitting his message to the observer at the heart of an increasingly complex communication system.
