>'colours of life' by jean coulot
5 December - 22 December, 2013

formatting

Jean Coulot started to paint in the sixties. His paintings are primarily composed of vibrant and colourful parts. Colour is used in a structured composition and thus preserves an aesthetic pleasure for the viewer as each element maintains natural proportions; Mystery perhaps arises from an eye-catching central perspective. From this point, the subject appears to escape its limits; there is an interruption created in a cinematographical way.
His work is strongly linked to his time, but still of contemporary relevance. His style is reminiscent of Pop Art, and in particular of Wesselmann’s style. He could be considered as the French representative of Pop Art, at a time when Nouveau Réalisme was only emerging in France. From the seventies onwards, the use of acrylic paint gives his paintings stronger and more vibrant colours, which are reminiscent of Warhol: a monochrome background and a stylised figure in the foreground composed of a few coloured areas.

Jean Coulot has had many solo exhibitions in France, Switzerland and the United States and also participated in collective exhibitions in France, Switzerland, Japan, Italy and England. Many of his paintings can be seen in museums such as The Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris, the National Library of France, the Museums of Reykjavik, Lausanne and Rehovot.
