Viewers of DeCluuz’ works are deprived of their preconceptions and encouraged to assimilate the past with the future with regard to artistic methods, the feminine, and our time on this earth itself.
DeCluuz will unveil seven large portraits collectively titled Le Temps des Cocus. Each piece depicts an iconic male character that viewers will recognize from history, literature and pop culture. The theme his subjects share in this series is having lived with a certain degree of passion, then suffered a related betrayal.
The portraits each feature a fine-tuned oxidation process tailored to the subject that invites the viewer to retrieve their own memories of these tales, take note of their differences and similarities, as well as ponder their historical contexts, perhaps comparing them to characters in the world as we know it.
