Irène Laub Gallery is delighted to present an immersive selection of Belgian painter Gauthier Hubert’s most recent works.
Through a selection of portraits, we present an overview of the artist’s impressive range of subjects, while highlighting his ability to consistently deliver a bold yet sensible appreciation of human nature. At first glance, his work is charachterized by an unsettling strangeness and a steady fascination with ugliness. On a deeper level, the artist takes part in a satirical dialogue with art and history and offers a meaningful examination of the pictorial discipline.
Born in 1967 in Brussels, Gauthier Hubert won the « Prix de la jeune peinture belge » in 1999 and has since shown his work in international group and solo shows, including several exhibitions at the Musée d’Ixelles and La Maison Particulière in Brussels (BE), shows at the National Portrait Gallery of London and of Edinburgh (UK), and a solo show at the National Gallery of Iceland in Reykjavík (IS). In September 2020, the Botanique museum (BE) presented a large-scale retrospective exhibition of his work and he published a retrospective monograph entitled « Viral – Portraits ».
