About the Artist
Antoine Puisais (b. 1975, France) approaches his practice through the translation of his inner perspective. Although Antoine does not consider himself strictly as a painter, he also looks to himself as more of an archaeologist whose paintings are first discovered then repaired. Antoine has developed a unique process of transferring paint onto canvas close to printing with a stamp. This process, which is very shaky, leaves a huge field for errors, accidents and alterations. He then finds this moment where the work truly begins in order to make links and find bridge, giving back a unity to all these fragments of paintings. For Antoine, the act of painting is a sweet war between the hidden and in plain sight It is a reflection of an interiority in a binary act of adding and eliminating. Antoine lives and works in Cannes, France.
