Biography

“I imagine my paintings and sculptures as the moments of a story and it’s up to you to create the whole story. There are several different scenarios, and that’s what I appreciate: the diversity of your looks. You are an actor of this exhibition: Look! Imagine! Speak! Exchange your opinions! A work exists only by the spectator’s gaze, my paintings exist only thanks to your imagination.”

Antoine Josse’s paintings are known for their atmosphere, evocative colour and tumultuous skies. His artwork expresses an irrepressible desire for lightness, escapism and the ability to dream the impossible. The presence of human beings immersed in these dream-like landscapes convey a unique charm to the artist’s work. These minuscule beings exist in a desolate and dangerous world where humour is balanced precariously with threat.
