Peter Joseph, a British artist, is showing paintings which have not been presented in Paris for the past twenty years.
The show includes seven large-scale pieces as well as a series of smaller works on canvas, underlining the remarkable freshness and sense of vitality evident in these new paintings.
Famous for his two-tone works, the nuances of which were the product of much careful contemplation, Peter Joseph’s more recent pieces are characterized by a compositional improvisation and are the “result of experience”, his touch both dynamic and calm, leaving several sections unpainted which evoke a new space and new emotion.
“Painting is not just colour. I try to capture light and air on the canvas, darkness and light… I try to paint atmosphere, paint light itself.”
