Description

The painting is part of a larger project entitled "Parallel Universe", consisting of five new works that, as often happens in the work of this artist, were painted simultaneously, in the same studio, so that during their realization they entered in dialogue with each other, becoming the result of the same creative process. De Balincourt has a highly intuitive approach to painting, which favors an organic development of the works, which thus specifically take shape both individually and as a whole. The paintings of "Parallel Universe" can therefore be read as a map of freely intertwined parts, aimed at exploring and recording the relationships between representation, abstraction and pictorial gesture. His are images that border on abstraction, are more symbolic than diagrammatic and can therefore be seen as a liberating need, not only in the sense of a progressive shift from figuration to abstraction, but also in terms of freeing from the way of thinking rational and objective. "Psychedelic Soldier" can be a sort of self-portrait for an artist who rarely represents himself openly in his works. The painting becomes the paradigm of an exploration of pictorial techniques of "camouflage", a concealment under everyone's eyes, an immersion in the surrounding environment. Camouflage, in giving the artist's work a complex transparency, can thus be considered a metaphor for the pictorial gesture in general and for the stratification of images in this exhibition The soldier's face and the world map surface, for example, can imply different ways of representing a landscape or a conflictual space. For de Balincourt, the camouflage uniform that soldiers wear in war zones makes them even more visible rather than merging them with the surrounding space and, absurdly, transforms them into potential targets. The painting thus becomes a protest against the absurdity of the war.
