Jérôme Robbe’s painting recalls the plurality of pictorial practices and non-literal references to art history and contemporary art. For Jérôme Robbe, painting remains a cosa mentale ; a comprehensive technique that serves the pursuit of the unexpected and the search for transcendence. Techniques, accidents, created attitudes give form, time and again, to a practice where excess is a requirement for beauty. The artist’s gesture is a defining trait in his rich and eclectic practice that focuses on material experimentation and conceptual proposals reminiscent of Richter.
