YVES TESSIER

Yves Tessier creates narrative images through his use of casein paint applied to aluminum and wood. For every scene, he draws from both his imagination and real-world observation, including what he sees on television and the internet. Tessier’s compositions are sometimes sensual and humorously erotic, while others are meditative and serene.
