David Lefebvre

Born in 1980, David Lefebvre works with painting and volume. Canvases, ceramics, and also drawings, on clay boards, scratched, and sometimes partially painted. These are mostly landscapes – no doubt inspired by the mountains that surround Grenoble, where David Lefebvre has his studio. But we could just as easily be on the surface of an unknown planet: strange black holes appear suddenly, when they are not multicolored stones… Are we looking at a real landscape ? Or rather at a dreamed or mental one ? Diving in a space of representation, close to a psychoanalytic universe. However, this world of the spirit is inscribed in a very tangible, very elaborate material, which alternates thicknesses and resistances in a mixture of familiarity and mystery specific to Lefebvre’s work.
