Stéphane Ducret Biography
The multifaceted themes in Stéphane Ducret’s art works have in common the artist’s fascination with the Beat Generation culture, the hipster & hippie life and psychedelic rock.
Time and Space Transcendence features a series of brand new paintings which all continue Stéphane Ducret’s extensive experiments with abstraction and space. Through oil painting on canvas, he seeks to explore the possibility of overcoming the perceived challenges of physical and natural space, translating this into his work while stretching the boundaries beyond the immediate and conventional way one looks at things.
The oil paint is wiped with pieces of cloth that he uses as brushes and is applied in sweeping gestures from one side to the other of the canvasses, forming large expressionists and vivid directional lines.
Stéphane Ducret was born in Lausanne in 1970 and was Silvie Defraoui’s, Gilles Porret’s and Christian Marclay’s pupil at the Ecole Supérieure d’Art Visuel of Geneva (ex HEAD). In 2016, he created ART CLASSE, a place for anybody to have fun while creating artworks based on preeminent contemporary artists. He now lives and works in Geneva after having lived in New York, Porto and Buenos Aires.
