Alain Magallon BA - Born - Paris France 1962

My paintings are mainly influenced by pop art and religious paintings.The subjects are painted in oil and are inspired by religious paintings of the past whose anachronistic and metaphorical symbols contrast with the graphic backgrounds which are painted in acrylic. They are often represented in static and devoted or illuminated poses which tend to ask the question of faith ( is god outside or within us ? ) in the contemporary painting. The goal is to produce a duality or imbalance between the neoclassical frozen or theatrical pose of the models and the association of the matter and the colours.

Sometimes the subjects fascination with their own image tends to duplicate or multiply themselves like the proverbial Russian dolls. Once again I try to picture a society where the absence of mysticism is replaced by narcissistic tendencies.
