"My paintings let me live out fantasies through characters I create. These stories often involve my desire to feel a connection to something bigger than myself-- to nature, to my ancestors, or to a sense of spirituality. I’ve created an alter ego who appears as a recurring protagonist in my paintings. This imaginary version of me is who I wish I could be-- a strong, fearless hero engaged in exploration and adventures." —Alison Blickle

A long-awaited event to start the new season: the third solo exhibition of works by Jules de Balincourt. His show, in our gallery in the Marais, has the beguiling title Blue Hours and includes fifteen new paintings. This ‘Michel Houellebecq’ of painting, as Jean-Marc Bustamante calls him, explores private themes that evoke architecture, travel, human migrations and artificial places, in a floating, idealised and escapist atmosphere with hints of a pervading vulnerability.
