Gallery Baronian is pleased to host a new exhibition of the French artist Yvan Salomone. Since 1991, Salomone devoted himself to the practice of watercolor paintings based on photographs. These photographs, taken from different places in the world, are interpreted liberally. In these watercolor paintings, he explores the problematics of what we experience as modernity. He paints subjects that speak to us, but at the same time, he purifies and transforms it, resulting in ambiguity and leaving the meaning of the works open for discussion. His subjects show the reality but contain a poetic dematerialization. These subjects often clash with the lightness of the material. Salomone works according to a system. First, he makes one watercolor a week. Secondly, the watercolors are, as mentioned above, based on photographs. Thirdly, all watercolor paintings have the same size: 105 x 145 cm. And lastly, there is no human presence in his works.
