Planets - Special Edition

Combining geometrical purity and gestural grandeur, Thierry W. Despontcombines architectural skills and painter's virtuosity in this spectacular COLLECTION of majestic, daunting and singularly attracting orbs, turning his struggle with corrosive materials and richly textured pigments into a spiritual achievement. A compoundof restless collage and swirling pigments, each orb is animated by a life of its own: colorful magma breaking through the scorched surface of the canvas, white streaks flickering against the encroaching and abysmal darkness of a stark black background that seems about to engulf it. Mysterious and luminous, intimate and remote, they conjure up the awe of man in front of a cosmic world he both reveres and dreads. Beyond the eruptive, cataclysmic forces animating them, the orbs are inwardly radiant, animated by a life that seems to emerge from their depths.
