Born in 1970 - France
Renaud Philippot was born in 1970 and, if he should try to place him in an artistic lineage, he could be connected to the CoBrA) group, a artistic movement founded in 1948 that brought together painters from Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam (hence the name CoBrA). Alechinsky, Dotremont, Appel, Jorn, Constant were some of them.
Painting is his lifelong passion and his only job, even if he also works sometimes with ceramic art that he learned from his mother. Extremely modern (particularly appreciated by design magazines), his painting imposed itself in today?s art world. But his canvases must are mostly about the images, and not at all about the words, because, as the artist states: ?The simplest things are sometimes the more complicated, but words don?t matter when it comes to painting".
Renaud Philippot seems to want both to disappear and to exist at the same time. Going towards disembodiment rather than towards incarnation, as if he wanted to leave a trace that is more emotional than material, a mark that is more durable than that of a life. And from this ?disembodied? man emerges the trace of a being who inhabits the paintings in which the self-portraits, sometimes isolated, sometimes multiplied, cloned, impose a silent presence that tends sometimes towards the abstract. Abstaining, not extracting himself. Including, not excluding. Bringing himself to the margins of the world in order to live in the canvas, wrapped in a fabric of vibrant, lively, warm and reassuring colors, taken from the South and his hometown, Montpellier? migrant to the north, in Brittany, he brought with him a piece of the southern sky, of the sun, of the rhythm and the heat that we transposes in his paintings.
