Jules de Balincourt "Blue Hours" @ Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac. Paris

Juxtapoz // Monday, September 15, 2014
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.

Jules de Balincourt "Itinerant Ones" @ Victoria Miro, London

Juxtapoz // Thursday, November 21, 2013
Victoria Miro is delighted to present Jules de Balincourt's Itinerant Ones, the first solo exhibition in the UK for the Paris-born, New York- based painter. Known for his carefully constructed paintings that move effortlessly between abstraction and figuration, the imagined and the real, this new body of work sees De Balincourt moving away from direct references to current social, political or popular culture, and instead depicting a world in which indications of specific place or time are absent.

The show itself is loaded with great talent from both America and Europe, curated as a "Transatlantic survey of figurative painting in Europe and America, named after the ubiquitous question posed on transatlantic flights."
