Balleux Stephan (Guest Artist)

1974

Stephan Balleux
For twenty years, Belgian artist Stephan Balleux, born
in 1974 and active in Brussels, develops an artistic practice
multidisciplinary based on deconstruction and reconstruction
of the pictorial act.
Signs of his analytical gaze on the media environment
through which it is traversed (a visual flow that we experience
all on a daily basis), the different artistic proposals
by Stephan Balleux are based on an invariable act, that of a
collection of heterogeneous images from films, clippings
press, magazines, personal photographs etc.
By a game of assembly and combinations of the different images
collected, he builds an artistic corpus where the construction of a
image-painting becomes a metaphor for an existential questioning
on the human condition.
The work of Stephan Balleux is often highlighted in the eye
of the virtuosity of execution shown by the painter, developing
de facto a constant problem of questioning about the
visible and more precisely on appearance.
Imbued with trans-historical references borrowed from science
humanities such as anthropology, mythology, the history of
art, literature and philosophy, Stephan Balleux develops a
complex and ambiguous work which, in addition to questioning the place of
the artist and the function of painting today, reveals the obsession
of the artist to grasp the mechanisms of the powers of the image
