Andrew Huston

Born in 1968. Works and Live in New-York, USA

Andrew Huston began introducing paintings from his iPad into his studio practice in response to the transitory nature of new media devices within our culture. The ipad has become another studio tool like the brush and canvas; in fact it can be considered a traveling studio.

In this new series developed for a solo exhibition in St. Restitut, France, Huston has combined the iPad paintings onto illuminated tablets with stones and rocks while developing sculptures and painting into a new multi-media format. Huston is interested in the beauty, silence and inert quality of the stones which contrast with the speed and luminosity of new techno-graphic paintings.

Lionel Scoccimaro

Born in 1973, Lives and works in Marseille, France.

The artist plays at combining the highest cultural traditions with the stereotypical manifestations of American counter-culture. If the semantic richness of his works raises many interpretations, in the end, death is never really far away. It is understood that the varnish of their playfulness masks every time a dark side.
