My specialism is lateral thinking, resolving the complexity encountered in the world with reductive poetic logic. I intertwine commercial and cultural practice: responding to the paradox of daily life and the complexities of project assignments. I seek focused solutions that feel inevitable. I get there by starting at the beginning, asking why, what if… then making sense of the things I find with radical acceptance and by embracing truth.
Please follow me on Instagram. I am reposting works, exploring the things I have made over the past twenty years in preparation for the next twenty years.
210mm x 297 A4 glass clip frame, acrylic paint
Edition of 60 signed and numbered copies, each unique
The clip frame backing board is marked in pencil, mapping geometric shapes and proportions relational to its dimensions and the four slot apertures. Colours are emotiomaticaly selected and combined, in rhythm to the mantra internalised, and applied at the intersection of lines. The final composition grows from the weight of the glass and the gentle squeeze exerted by the frames clips, spreading and connecting colours between the two surfaces. Made to be displayed in transitional spaces, to remind the viewer to be fully present.
Note on viewing: Each painting is its own universe, select one. Breathe slowly and deeply whilst observing the painting. Gradually let your gaze go out of focus. Meditate on the centre of the painting, allowing its geometry to bring your mind to a state of balance.

An invitation from Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié
For my next exhibition in Paris, I am asking 13 artists and graphic designers to contribute by designing announcements to the show in the form of a poster. The show takes place in two galleries, Atelier Cardenas Bellanger and Galerie de multiples so I'm asking each artist or graphic designer to design two poster/ invites (one for each venue). The posters/invites will be sent out as invitations and will also be the object of the exhibition: the posters/invites to the first gallery will be displayed in the second gallery and the posters/invites to the second gallery displayed in the first. I will not show anything else than the 13 posters/invites in each gallery.

Best Jérôme Saint-Loubert Bié
Hello Jérôme, for my poster designs I would like to propose two composite posters, made by overprinting the other twelfth designs forming the thirteenth design. This would mean that as the first poster was printed extra copies would be printed. As the second poster was printed, the extra copies would be overprinted with poster two. This would happen 12 times. I would not add any additional information, so the production budget would be used to extend the print run of the other posters. Please confirm that this will be possible. Best regards Dan
