ANTOINE AGUILAR

B. 1979
LIVES/WORKS IN PARIS

French artist Antoine Aguilar's practice is informed by light, colour, space and perception in a similar fashion to the Impressionists, in particular Monet and Seurat, however, in a more digital context.

Aguilar works with the 'micro-details' of the image, what makes an image he appropriates. By revealing these micro details, Aguilar aims to expose the natural phenomena of the digital age, the pixel and its support apparatus such as the plasma, TV, LED, LCD screens and video projector. Other material forms are also explored and exposed such as neon, paper confetti and powered pigments, to question an image with new forms of radiance, colour and metaphoric light.

Public collections include the Rosenblum Collection, Paris, Fond Municipal d'Art Contemporain (FMAC) Paris and Centre Pompidou, Paris along with numerous private collections in France, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, New Zealand and Australia.
