Description

Seascapes
by Paul Rousteau

French artist Paul Rousteau is known for his alchemic light and colour-bending approach to photography. Seascapes is a series made by Rousteau while artist-in-residence on a boat off the Coral Sea, in Australia. Inspired by the unending horizons around him, Rousteau retreated to the darkroom to invent mental topographies of his own, reducing the landscape down to the barest constituent elements – water, air and light. Often saturated, interrupted or out of focus, his photographs are series of playful experiments navigating between figuration and abstraction, painting and digital art.

These constructed landscapes invite us to consider the point where human imagination interacts with the landscape - how fantasies of distance, displacement and faraway places are projected onto the horizon. Existing somewhere between vision, imagination and a surreal, submerged reality, Rousteau extends this fiction through globetrotting captions and an innovative design that invites readers to rip away and reappropriate the seascapes as their own.

Paul Rousteau (b.1985) graduated from the Vevey photography school in Switzerland in 2010. By pushing the camera to its limits, he creates new forms of perception. The result made of vivid colours and enigmatic figures has something of a daydream with a touch of kaleidoscopic hallucinations. Mixing fine arts and fashion, his photographs have been published in the New York Times, M Le Monde, Dazed & Confused and The New Yorker. Paul Rousteau has also worked for companies such as Hermès, BMW or Louis Vuitton. In 2017, he was part of the final selection of the Hyères festival of fashion and photography and was nominated in 2019 for the HSBC prize. He is represented by Galerie du Jour Agnès b. in France and by the Forma Art Contemporain in Switzerland.
