“The Easter”, is a contemporary painting on paper mounted on canvas.by Philipe Croq.
Philipe Croq’s drawing and painting invite us to dream and dialogue with our childhood: dreamlike forms, the world of the circus, animal, human and plant figures, sometimes evanescent, sketched, imperfect, images that leave us free to tell ourselves stories.
For more spontaneity, Philippe Croq first works on paper, and only once his painting is finished does he put it on canvas.
A painting with a message, as Croq’s paintings often are. “The Easter” incorporates an enigmatic figure but also perfectly identifiable objects linked to childhood, a drum and a horse with wheels. The shapes seem to float in the blue: a childhood memory linked to a family or religious event?
As is often the case, the author invites the spectator to look deep inside himself, in search of meaning.Discover the artist
