Born in 1986
After getting noticed for his realistic, poetic, and sensuous landscapes at the 63rd Salon de Montrouge in Paris in 2018, Yann Lacroix participated in many collective exhibitions in France and abroad.
His practice is exclusively about painting. His landscapes use utopian, dream-like iconography that he borrowed from recollections of his travels and the potential memory of these silent places. Their lushness recalls the most popular destinations, symptoms of a longing for a paradise lost that paradoxically triggers the creation of artificial locations. Like metaphors for the process of memory, the works of Yann Lacroix layer blurred spaces and very precise details whose intensity contrasts with the fogginess of the rest of the canvas.
