Vincent Bioulès. Chemins de traverse
On the occasion of the first great retrospective exhibition of this artist born in Montpellier in 1938, this catalogue of over-400 pages will present the work of a main witness and actor of the great upheavals of contemporary painting in the 60s.
Based on research and experiment, his pictorial practice holds a singular and prominent place in contemporary history.
Founder of the Supports/Surfaces movement in 1970 along with Claude Viallat and Daniel Dezeuze, Vincent Bioulès actively contributed to the development of this key art movement. Starting in the 80s, Vincent Bioulès strongly rejected abstraction and dedicated himself to figurative painting. It was for him the occasion to come up with a more intimate and personal painting that revealed his rare sensitivity and the poetical dimension of his work.
He also kept painting landscapes, whether land or seascapes, drawing his strength and inspiration from the natural environment of the South of France were he was born.
This comprehensive retrospective exhibition will feature an exceptional collection of 350 illustrations: canvas paintings, sketchbooks, doodles, pastel and charcoal drawings…
Vincent Bioulès currently lives and works in Montpellier.
