PHILIPPE PASTOR Solo Show

November 23, 2017 – January 31, 2018 Private View: November 23, 6-9pm

Jerome Zodo Gallery is proud to announce a personal exhibition by highly acclaimed Monegasque artist Philippe Pastor. The exhibition begins with Pastor's large-sized works from the series 'Avec le Temps'. His organic lines, evoking natural disasters such as hurricanes and tsunamis, express the power of nature. The works from the series 'Bleu Monochrome', which have become emblematic of his work, are a tribute to the sea, an ecological reflection on pollution and the disappearance of the seabed. Using mostly blue, the artist works the surface with natural pigments, creating topographies peppered with subtle cracks. Evoking drought, in views from the sky, or the earth's crust, these paintings assume a geological aspect. His use of a powerfully intense, natural pigment also invites us to explore an emotional aspect. The artist's preferred colour, blue, is a 'hymn to emotion, to peace'. While blue dominates, Pastor balances his monochromes with other colours, as is the case in the 'North Pole' series. The cracked canvases, in various tones of white, are like polar maps of places that are disappearing as a result of climate change. "Philippe Pastor's multidisciplinary approach is associated with eternal themes - nature, man and society - with a rare consistency and unshakeable ardour. Not only is there an intensification in his force of expression, it is also permanently topical. Man and nature are the founding active ingredients of a vehement work, just like the artist, who bears witness to a visceral insubordination to all forms of compromise. A necessary violence considering the severity of the stakes. " - Alexandra Marini, extract from "PASTOR", 2017 (continues next page)
