Biography

Yvan Salomone was born in 1957 at Saint-Malo where he lives and works.

Salomone paints watercolors in his studio based on preliminary photographs taken from the four corners of the planet. He doesn't reproduce the photos in his works, but liberally interprets them; the photos are a visual starting point. Thus the representation of raw materials (containers, cement, steel, etc.) conflict with the lightness of the watercolors and undergo a metamorphosis to create the singular nature of his compositions. 

The massive lines of a container ship or the rusty cylinders of heavy barrels allow him the opportunity not only to free the energy inside these massive objects, but also to give them a voice, without relieving them of their functions. Yvan Salomone shows what speaks, but purifies it, synthesizes it, and transforms it – he leaves the meaning ambiguous, allusive, and open. 

Yvan Salomone's landscapes defend reality as well as a poetic dematerialization of it, and impose a perspective to the public as well as a space in suspension.
