Philippe Decrauzat
LOOP (20 lines), 2015/17

Philippe Decrauzat’s paintings are based on image carriers that spatially translate the painted motives as shaped, two-dimensional object. The artist explores complex geometric bodies, which he translates into flat chromatically graduated image objects. The folds, undulating curves and overlaps of the painted geometries create the impression that the form moves in space—here the artist ties in with the effects of 1960s Op Art and combines them with the latest findings and techniques from film and architecture and digital graphic programs. As Decrauzat puts it, he is “interested in [the] direct relationship Op art provides to the viewers and the way it influences their minds. Unlike some artists from the 1980s, I am not trying to build up a new theory about ideological issues regarding the historical content of abstraction. I am strongly involved in investigating the status of the image, in other words, indebted to practices trying to outline the critical tools developed by Conceptual and Op Art.”
