Philippe Farcy, a Finalist of the "Show Your World" International Art Competition.
Philippe Farcy, painter: "Art is inconceivable without drawing in which there is an essence of art."
Philippe Farcy works in ink and borrows great energy from contemporary and classical arts such as sculpture, dance, chronophotography, rock music and comics.
He insists on representing living in insatiable exploration of the body in perpetual motion.
The artist's fascination with anatomy helps him define life in one gesture. In his artwork, the dualistic dynamics of a couple, the faces, often in profile, are a symbolic power and balance of power. They oppose themselves while being the one at the same time. They argue, play, cry, laugh, dance, fight... leading the artist in a fierce battle against his work, reflection of himself, making him blow while guiding him.
Envy and disgust, obsession and freedom, frustration and enjoyment are all opposite feelings and deep emotions behind the creation process portrayed by a systematic, almost mechanical breakdown of bodies.
Centered in the composition, strength of the contrast increases this permanent torture where white space gives the meaning of the work and the black space highlights the void. In this graphic universe mixing and operated unification of body, blurring is created and creates an ambiguity, as an invitation to a meditation on the perception of the other... Understanding or refusal? Balance or domination? Transparency or connivance? You decide.
