Punches Telemachus – Knowledge of Arts

Signature <- - barre_outils_article> : Elizabeth Vedrenne – February 25, 2015

Herve Telemaque, The Hector Hippolyte Travel in Africa , 2000, acrylic on canvas, 162 x 243 cm (Paris, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris).

Narrative, his painting certainly is still abundant, sometimes light, sometimes bursting out at you as a punch. This retrospective sheds the jolting and varied course of this French artist of Haitian descent [sic] whose themes plunge the roots of his biography. Thus seen, after the 1950s pop pretty adopt acrylic paint, then create “ skinny sculptures ” then confront various techniques of collage, inventing a colorful and enigmatic language with images -rébus and sophisticated metaphors and adopting the dark charcoal or wood reliefs recovery covered coffee grounds. After 2000, Hervé Telemaque briskly up to the African roots and his blackness, still in an explosion of sophisticated colors. Principally subject here works bought by French institutions or those in which the artist has made their donation.
