Since the 70’, Jean Le Gac – one of the most recognised French painter, and born in 1936 – creates, in a polyphonic and imaginary autobiography, a fictional and key-role character – by copying the images of children’s books from the 30′, and making montage of photos-texts, and artifacts. Those works have been shown at Biennale of Venise, Documenta V. Kassel, Guggenheim MuseumNew York, Museum Art Oxford, Centre Georges Pompidou, FIAC, Paris… L’effraction douce an exhibition shown in Aix-en-Provence in 2009 – in which Jean Le Gac pays an original and iconoclastic homage to Pablo Picasso – reveals how that introspective and multifaceted narrative painting offers a critical portrait of the contemporary artist – seen as adventure heros –; the portrait of the Father – Picasso ; and the portrait of the Painting – that is evolving during the 20th century between media and hybridization of visual languages.
