  • About the artwork

    "Voodoo Rituals" is a series that brings together about fifteen canvases all of the same format (70 × 50 cm), performed at night during the year 2016. Work with a knife and brush, incisions with the handle of the brush in the charge of a thick black and white, without repentance.

    Patrice Palacio brings out from his painting an effervescent and tumultuous production of images, certainly fantasized, coming from his readings on the rites of this animist cult ...

    A strong sensuality transpires from these paintings ("Pou Pikan Pa Pike Yo", "Jean Dantor", "Hogou scrap" ...).
    Multiple details emerge as the eye wanders on their surface suggesting, by the presence of "vèvè", spirits of the world of the invisible ("Bloroum", "Kouloume", "Mete Hounssi O Dehor" ... )

    Naturally, the titles refer to the deities and spirits of Voodoo ("Hogou scrap", "Jean Dantor", "Loa"), to particular rites ("Bloroum") and refer to their priests and priestesses ("Mambo") ...

    The presence of certain signs arouse curiosity and perhaps return to other myths ... Thus, the crown in "Bloroum" evokes a bit of the three-pointed crown of Jean-Michel Basquiat, a Haitian hero from New York, who would have inherited voodoo knowledge and would have been familiar with his minds, the "loas" ...

Patrice Palacio

Born in: 1977 France
Patrice Palacio is a French self-taught painter born in Montpellier in 1977.

His work is a bridge between painting, photography and screens. It is a reconciliation, not an opposition between tradition and modernity, between archaic painting and technology. It is always the same thing that drives him to paint: the desire to show the brilliance of life and talk about all the tricks, all the interfaces and the lies we need to catch a glimpse of the suspended time of a flash, of what reality is.

Patrice Palacio held exhibitions in Paris, London, New York, Chicago, Dubaï, Toronto, Miami, Basel, Barcelona, Berlin, Frankfort… He created in 2013 the Fragmental Art movement and wrote its manifesto. He considers the canvas as a screen and tries to make visible the way we see reality with minimal ways (no color, disturbed surface, pixel etc…) or experimental paintings (chemical and optical).
