The fugitive, the flaws, the defects - everything that can bring us closer to the mystery of the human being - feed Olivier Chaulieu’s vocabulary to remind us of the fragility and intensity of the passage. Beyond words, beyond those that cannot be said: painting the unspeakable. Beyond the flesh, to the bone: trying to reveal the inner fragility of man. Beyond the motif, through the subtle interplay of values and colours, through the rupture of coloured masses, the evanescence of a gradient or the escape offered by a shadow: evoking fears and fascinations. Since 2015 he has been reflecting on time with the exhibition suite: "It’s About Time", "Still[a]life" and "Faded Time". 2018 marks a return to the landscapes he tackled in 2015 (with "Comme se taisent les nuages" Dreamscape Landscapes) the theme of time and its passage remains at the heart of his work, the narrative gives way to suggestion, as a proposal to penetrate a landscape.
