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.
