Show Hype - imaginary narrative illustrationism / impressionistic comics




I just wrote this about my upcoming show:

These paintings are mostly about stories, the kinds of stories we use to understand our place
in the universe, the ones we use to understand each other, the ones that show us how we
each got to 'here', this particular point in our lives. More specifically, the paintings are scenes
where these kinds of stories could happen.

In that sense, they could be seen as illustrations of imaginary novels, so you could say
they're a kind of imaginary narrative illustrationism. Or you could just say they're big
impressionistic comics.

That'll probably get edited again, but I think it describes things pretty well.

Cheers,
Marcel
