Maxime Ansiau

Born in: 1972



French visual artist, he lives and works in Rotterdam, in the Netherlands

Maxime Ansiau's approach reveals a double quest, the desire to represent the hidden beauty of the objects which surround us and the search for meaning. His creations suggest a delicate evocation, a subtle logic, which is the connivance between the subject and the material.

Guided by his aspirations and discoveries, Maxime never stops working the material, of any kind. The Kant’s quotation "Give me the material only, and I shall build you a world" applies perfectly to his artistic approach of which the exploratory appetite has already led him to deal with glass, ceramic, linoleum, plastic, cardboard and paper. Using as a palette the range of effects and colors of the raw material chosen, Maxime creates pictorial solutions with optical diversions which lead the raw material back to its origin. Thus, he establishes a logic pattern between form and content. Through analogy, he questions our relationship to our environment.

This audacious creator is hungry for new experiences since his expatriation from the age of 17 and gets involved from the beginning of his professional practice in the transmission of techniques and knowledges as a professor of art and design.
