Jules de Balincourt

Nov 26, 2012

New York City

Known for his abstract and figurative paintings of utopian, dystopian and marginalized communities as well as American politics, Jules de Balincourt breaks new ground in an exploration of collective global anxieties. Without a unified linear narrative, de Balincourt sets his lens to both macro and micro, zooming in and out of physical and psychic realities that comprise individual and collective experiences. The resulting works are a collision of the chaotic harmonies between disparate human experiences.

In his studio, de Balincourt simultaneously paints up to 10 works. Without preparatory drawings, he intuitively moves from painting to painting, allowing one to influence the next. His new body of work is currently on view in Ecstatic Contact at Salon 94. The 6 6 new large-scale paintings address the uncertainties of contemporary human life.
