Yves Bélorgey

Since the 1990s, Yves Belorgey focuses on architectural modernism by representing the urban landscape. His paintings and drawings incorporate a rich and polymorphic visual, which surpasses mere objective documentation of modernist residential architecture. Through his paintings and drawings, the artist confronts collective architecture, according to its many potentialities for particular expression: he paints these landscapes both as places in which the “social body” undergoes training, and as an inventory of forms in which the “corpulent” presence of the surface of his canvases infallibly recalls the historical gauntlet of Modern painting.
