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.
