Stephane Joannes

Born in 1975 in Besançon.

Rusty freighters are tied up forever. Air and water have the same dirty, slightly oily and transparent fluidity. The freighters are slowly dying. Their invisible passages, innumerable and noisy, still appear in regular lines over water and air, air and water. The metal will soon be gone, but not yet. A last trip is impossible, (...) Death has made a beauty. A silent, permanent flight watches with infinite patience the emptied carcasses of these supertankers and Joannes' taste for matter appears in all its exigency.

Stéphane Joannes admits to you bluntly that when you have no genius, you have to work and still work. He works when others calculate, enchants us when others overwhelm us with boredom. He is a painter, a real one, a craftsman of silence and light.

Nicolas brizault


Stéphane JOANNES

Stéphane Joannes easily confesses that when you are not a genius, you have to work and work again. He works when others calculate, makes us happy when others bother us. He is a painter, a real one, a craftsman of silence and light.
