Vanishing Landscape #58
In this landscape series, the artist excludes any human presence or construction in order to memorialize nature. This nearly abstract work is made from brushy pink, red and green bands that emulate the earth and sky.
Lou Ros frequently paints landscapes and close-ups of birds. The artist hopes his paintings can produce what is not immediately visible—the reality of our sensory relationships to time and space.
Lou Ros paints his favorite subjects, landscapes and close-ups of birds, using hybrid painting techniques (which employ a combination of acrylic, spray paint and pastel) to materialize his final images. Ros aims for his paintings to bring that which is not immediately visible—our sensory relationship to time and space—into existence. Dismissing more naturalistic projections, the artist reimagines natural imagery as a method of contemplation—examining what place humans have in this world.
Lou Ros was born in 1984 in Pithiviers, France, and currently resides in Paris, France.
He has mounted recent solo exhibitions that include: Vanishing Area at Galerie Romero Paprocki in Paris, France (2021); Somewhere² at Allouche Gallery, New York City, NY (2018); and Quelque Part at Galerie Flash in Munich, Germany (2018), among others.
The artist’s recent group exhibitions include: Blur Me Tender, Galerie Romero Paprocki, Paris, France (2022); uGLY, Yiri Arts, Taipei, Taiwan (2022); and I believe I can fly, Commissariat Julien Carbone, Le port des Createurs, France (2021).
