Jean Claracq paints miniatures and icons in which he pays attention to even the slightest details. Although he finds his models on social media, his paintings resonate with a thousand learned references. He skilfully plays with a multitude of possible interpretations in urban compositions that portray with surgeon-like precision our relationship with screens and solitude. Where you would expect to find the painter, you see the reflection of a photographer: the artist takes a step back, finding in the process a way to portray the contemporary world. In his experimentations, Jean Claracq has gone beyond a simple presentation of things and created an experience that conveys life itself through his compositions and emotions in his technique. .

For this summer group show, Praz-Delavallade Paris has invited five young painters to take over the gallery walls and, in its generosity, summer offers us a new crop of intriguing discoveries and invites us to take a seat at the angels’ table. Total freedom of expression is the rule with just one condition: the resulting encounters must be explosive, unexpected, discordant and above all amazing. The exhibition "Les fleurs de l’été sont les rêves de l’hiver racontés le matin à la table des anges" is on view through 20 July. . With works by @jeanclaracq, @danielhorowitzstudio, @golnazpayani, @karine.rougier and @apolonia_painter . 📷 @rebeccafanuele #PrazDelavallade

Heather Cook talks with Nicole Swengley about her practice in this week’s Financial Times article ‘A looming Renaissance: textile art for the digital age’ - “Wanting to make my own canvas led me to weaving,” says Heather Cook, a Los Angeles artist. “I usually paint the yarns before weaving, so the paint lies within the structure of the artworks instead of sitting on the surface.” It is the “glitches”, she says, “where I’ve made a mistake in the loom set-up that interest me. They become markers of time and the hand.” - Detail view of: Heather Cook Shadow Weave Red (02) + Florescent Blue (Parakeet 84) 8/4 cotton 15 EPI, 2019 acrylic on 8/4 cotton yarn and canvas 24 x 20 in (60,96 x 50,8 cm) - #HeatherCook #PrazDelavallade @financialtimes @ft_houseandhome

Fabien Mérelle's brand new monograph published by Lannoo is now available on their online store! . Whether latched on to his pregnant wife’s stomach, carrying an elephant on his back, or holding his father in an intimate embrace, Fabien Mérelle always presents himself in his drawings as the protagonist of an absurd surrealistic play. The French artist is known for the anatomical precision with which he draws his figures, the sea of white he surrounds them with, and the dream-like sequences he depicts. This book, a compilation of the best of his work until now, contains around a hundred drawings and four sculptures. .

Don’t miss "Psyche and Politics" at Staatliche Kunsthalle, Baden-Baden to discover Jim Shaw’s works. The exhibition is on view through June 16. . The exhibition at Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden examines processes and poses the question of how these experiences, which are so different all across the globe, can be made visible through art. The exhibition presents the positions of ten international artists who deal with the perception of the self and its transformation into the external world. Against the backdrop of their life experiences in different regions of the world – from the US West Coast over China, Europe to North Africa – they attest to a global interest in the subject as well as heterogenous experiences. .

Guy Yanai’s exhibition "The Conformist" is currently on view at Praz-Delavallade Paris until May 25! . Guy Yanai's paintings are characterized by bold colors, simplified shapes, and a flattened depth of field. Yanai has cited numerous sources of inspiration—from old, modern, and contemporary masters to digital imagery, television and advertisements—and his simplified representations may serve as a way to condense and organize the multitude of data we receive in reference to any person, place, or thing into concise representations with tight compositions. .

Congratulations to Amanda Ross-Ho! She will be included in the 2019 edition of the Ljubljana Biennial. - The Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts, which will be held in the Slovenian capital from June 7 to September 29, has named the artists participating in its 33rd edition. The show, titled “Crack Up – Crack Down,” is curated by the Berlin-based collective Slavs and Tatars, who are part of the line-up for this year’s Venice Biennale. The biennial will focus on satire as a vehicle for political and social critique. Spanning nine venues in Ljubljana, the exhibition will include installations, new-media works, performances by stand-up comedians, and more. The curators said in a statement, “With the rise of populism across the globe (not to mention reductive and revanchist forms of identity politics), there has been vigorous debate over who constitutes ‘the people.’ For more than a millennium, satire has been a particularly contested genre to explore such questions, via varying degrees of serious invective or jocular teasing.” - #AmandaRossHo #SlavsAndTatars #PrazDelavallade 📸 by Sebastian Micke

TWISTED REFRAIN: THE WORK OF MARNIE WEBER - opens today March 8th from 6-9pm on view through April 12 - The Boone Family Art Gallery, Pasadena City College 1570 E Colorado Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91106 - "Marnie Weber’s centralizing embrace of the societal fringe mimics our globalized reassessment of the dominant point of view, debunking the old norm for a new model where the previously peripheral moves to center stage. Her world of freaky side-show circus characters, runaway waifs and mobile home denizens are counter-culture oddities recast as empowered models of defiantly capable heroes, or at least battered survivors. Unabashedly narrative in nature, these works maneuver like familiar storybook legends and fairy tale lore, insinuating themselves into our subconscious soup of primal fears and childhood nightmares. At first seeming to be eccentric cast-offs, these damaged personages soon reveal themselves to be stand-ins for us, fragile yet resilient, emotionally vulnerable human beings of merit and worth in search of acceptance and security. Through these surrogate misfits, we find compassion for ourselves." - Mahara Sinclaire -

Nathan Mabry talks about the references behind his work and practice @imodara. - I am exploring the many layers of historical aesthetic and stylistic appropriation. Ideas of authorship are important here. Through my combinations, I explore highly authorised objects by anonymous artists and anonymous objects by authorised artists. This vortex of the aesthetic and the ceremonial echoes the way it folds into itself and exposes humanity's need to understand the world. A type of visual storytelling or the re-telling of myth and metaphor.” - #PrazDelavallade #NathanMabry

Thomas Fougeirol’s exhibition "Collapsing Fields" is currently on view at Praz-Delavallade Paris until March 23! . Thomas Fougeirol creates dramatic peaks, craters, ridges, ripples, and waves of paint with energetic wipes, splatters, peels, blasts, pours, slaps, and sprays. But despite his paintings’ decidedly geological characteristics, Fougeirol is not a landscape painter in the traditional sense. His works, to the contrary, are very much about their own materiality—one might call them landscaped paint. . 📷 @rebeccafanuele #ThomasFougeirol #PrazDelavallade #Paris

Always a pleasure to visit Jim Shaw in his studio! Discover the interview between Jim and Stanya Kahn "The Rinse Cycle" in Spike Art Magazine #58. . Jim Shaw’s dreams and waking visions tap into the deep reservoir of the American unconscious, which runs through his oeuvre and inspires his neo-surreal sculptural objects and installations. His most ambitious project is the ongoing development of a religion that revolves around a goddess known only as “O”. It was allegedly founded around the same time as Mormonism, but time runs backwards in it. In conversation with the artist Stanya Kahn, Shaw talks about the high priests of evil, his band Dred Dwarf, the end of the world, and, of course, the true meaning of O-ism. . #JimShaw #PrazDelavallade #SpikeArtMagazine @spike_art_magazine

Congratulation to Thomas Fougeirol and Jo-ey Tang for the recent acquisition of their project “The plates of the present” (2013 - 2018) by Musée National d’Art Moderne - Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. . “The plates of the present” is a project based on the photographic process of photogram. In February 2013, artist Thomas Fougeirol and artist/curator Jo-ey Tang set up a photographic darkroom (nicknamed DUST) in Ivry-sur-Seine, bordering Paris. Since then, 130 participants have come through The plates of the present. The project is named after the beginning of a sentence in William Henry Fox Talbot’s The Pencil of Nature (published in six installments between 1844 and 1846), the first photographically illustrated book. From an afternoon to several months, the darkroom and the simple photogram technique provide many who have never worked in traditional photography to recalibrate their relationships to time and space. A respite from our other commitments in life, it is also a gauntlet of sort. Each participant is provided paper and asked to create eight prints. Individual kinks are welcomed. Defiantly not a curatorial project, it is an invitation based on mutual curiosity and trust. . #ThomasFougeirol #JoeyTang #Theplatesofthepresent #CentrePompidou #Paris
