Jérôme delepine

(Born in 1977)


Jérôme Delépine plays with light, manipulating chiaroscuro in canvases with velvety, mysterious glazes. Dark, misty landscapes, where you can barely make out a tree, a few silhouettes or a frail boat tossed by the waves, give way to immense, dazzling skies. His portraits, too, emerge from the black, slightly erased to mark the passing of time, but fascinating and distressing at the same time, with their unique eyes, piercing the canvas with their mocking, frightened or introspective look, like mirrors of the soul.
