Dehais studied at the National School of Fine Arts in Paris and the School of Modern Art. He then went on to teach at the Camondo School, and most of his research deals with colour.
Panorama explores the limits between sculpture and painting, between decorative coloured panels and conceptual art. After painting wooden boxes, the artist brings them together in a random fashion, resisting the temptation to create an aesthetic affect. The result is an unplanned construction of colours that invites the viewer to go beyond their initial perception of the work.
