STEPHEN FELTON – Teeth in the Grass

Exposition / Exhibition Stephen Felton Teeth In The Grass

Exhibition / Contemporary Art

From June 17 to October 25, 2020

 

The painter

First of all, this internationally renowned American painter, Stephen Felton (born in 1975 in Buffalo) produced a whole new series of monumental canvases for his exhibition. Therefore, his monographic exhibition Teeth in the Grass will be held at FRAC.

 

The exhibition

Furthermore, Stephen Felton’s paintings are made of very simple geometric shapes. They question the medium and the foundations of mimetic representation in art.

He then developed an alphabet of signs similar to pictograms, a universal and playful language reminiscent of children’s imagery. In addition, it recalls parietal art and its rare representations of the human figure.

Thus the search for a balance between the foreground and the background, between the subject and the landscape, between color and white is at the heart of the artist’s work. The spontaneous, rapid, almost performative gesture of Stephen Felton seems to be that of an amateur, contradicting the classic notion of know-how and technique as much as the romantic representation of the artist endowed with an extraordinary talent working tirelessly. to the perfection of his work.

This is why, for his exhibition at the FRAC, Stephen Felton deploys on the two floors of the old Jesuit college. It is then the narration of a love story in two acts. This love story evokes both great literary works and their multiple contemporary adaptations.
