Philippe Attie’s work is defined by the relationship between the realistic figure and the ground of gestural abstraction. Working primarily with acrylic and oil on canvas, his subjects are meticulously depicted in states of contemplation and repose, and enveloped by a psychological atmosphere built up by transparent layers of soft color and hints of expressionist forms. It is an intuitive portrayal of the emotions, sensuality, or wisdom of the figure, striving to capture facets of the human soul. The work is infused with lightness, both in the technical luminosity of the pieces and what it evokes in both subject and viewer. These intimate scenes create a meditative sense of calm, revealing not just who these people are, but who Attie may be as his keen sense of observation hints at the human behind the hand.
