About

Phillipé Ducasse is best known for using ink in his works to create fine lines and intricate details, infused with radically flowing backgrounds. His works have in common his intrigue of innovative technology and architecture and their relationship with the survivalist tendencies of flora and natural landscapes. As in the case of his series “Trees,” Phillipé seamlessly coheres plant and machine parts to convey the mutation of the natural into supernatural by means of modern advances. Phillipé magnifies diversity and interest in ordinary subject matter to “make people look a little closer,” a sentiment he uses to suggest the effects of a diminishing attention-span in the times of “fast” culture.

This energetic, colorful painting is 48 inches high by 36 inches wide. The sides are painted with an elegant, metallic gold and it does not require framing. It is wired and ready to hang. Free local Los Angeles area delivery. Affordable Continental U.S. and global shipping are available. A certificate of authenticity issued by the art gallery is included.

Born in Columbus, GA, and attending art school in Atlanta, I was never exposed to the true possibilities of a career as a fine artist. My family didn’t visit museums, art shows, art fairs, or galleries. My Mother’s main objective as a single parent, was to do everything she could to keep me from becoming another stereotype. Innately I was drawn to pencil, paper, and exploring my imagination to fuel the talent I’ve always had. I created a series of paintings with the following narrative in mind: “The beauty of Humanity can be more evident when studying our resourcefulness and ingenuity under various circumstances. I love the aesthetic of hillside African, Central, and South American living settlements, often referred to as "favelas" in Brazil. With these paintings I want to attack that subject matter with a sense of structure, adaptivity, and coexistence, rather than negative imagery such as crime, and poverty. This is a technique and a process that I created featuring acrylic and ink on canvas. These paintings give me the impression of Home. No matter what you look like, or where you might be from.” I entitled the series "beautifuL sLum" with emphasis on the "L" in both words because a recurring thought that I have while making these paintings is "Love of Life". It is important to me that I present something completely original and different than anything else that has been seen.

Phillipé Ducasse is best known for using ink in his works to create fine lines and intricate details, infused with radically flowing backgrounds. His works have in common his intrigue of innovative technology and architecture and their relationship with the survivalist tendencies of flora and natural landscapes, which are common subjects in his work.

As in the case of his series “Trees,” Phillipé seamlessly coheres plant and machine parts- reminiscent of historical didactic plant drawings- to convey the mutation of the natural into supernatural by means of modern advances. Phillipé magnifies diversity and interest in ordinary subject matter to “make people look a little closer,” a sentiment he uses to suggest the effects of a diminishing attention-span in the times of “fast” culture.
