"I recently started a series of drawings with small objects that I called "detached parts" because they are images that I had already used several times in my paintings or my drawings but which, for the first time, become the main subject of the work. It could very well be a screw, a spring, a weapon or a capsule...
Some are objects that I have used for a very long time, as is the case for the skull, probably because it is one of the most important themes in the history of art and I am attached to the classical side of the painting. Others fascinate me simply because even drawing the same object again and again in different facets, my vision, and therefore the result, will each time be very variable and will never cease to amaze me. »
Philippe Huart was born in 1953 in Clamart. After studying at the Ecole Supérieure des Arts Modernes in Paris, he became an illustrator and graphic designer for literary and phonographic editions. In 1991 he decided to devote himself definitively to painting and then participated in numerous exhibitions, individual or collective in France and abroad. His thoughts focus on the effects advertising, marketing and consumption have on our unconscious. His painting is thus based on the concept of “objective reality”. Pictorial perception is above all “visual”. It is above all linked to forms and rhythms. The works of Philippe Huart do not represent everyday objects, but their “signs”. These signs, trivialized by their accumulation and their frequency within our environment, of which only the juxtaposition and superimposition of their enlarged fragments would allow us to perceive them from a new angle, both surprising and familiar.
