Vincent Michéa : De Punta a Punta

Continuity of stippling: a kaleidoscope of faces.

This is Vincent Michéa’s second solo exhibition at Galerie Cécile Fakhoury.  The visual artist and painter, Vincent Michéa, depicts stories that he has appropriated on paper and canvas. The picture is always at the heart of his creative process.

He has thoroughly mastered the formal aspects, and questions whether the work is reproducible. The mechanisation in processing the representation refers to industrialisation, with a reflection on time. A relationship and a discussion arise from encountering a photograph, sometimes closer to an internal dialogue. The finality of the systematic process gives substance to the unique work.

De Punta a Punta invites us to look at what is continuously evolving from point to point, the creativity, the relationship between the artist and his material within the subjects that he considers.

His painting becomes music, bears witness to society and to our era. Painting from a record sleeve stems from historical and social collections, and restitution work.

Vincent Michéa’s paintings demonstrate how faithful he remains towards his iconographic source. They reveal a hidden meaning, an intrigue, to guess how the picture has been created.
