About the artwork

Oscillating between romanticism and onirism, Damien Dufresne captures the intimacy of his subjects in order to paint on and work with their bodies. Due to the fact that, unlike canvas, skin perspires, breathes and resists, the resulting beauty is fascinating and the sentiment of fragility that shines through from his models is disquieting in its humanity. Yet, although the image is perfectly mastered, the rendering is not the fruit of a clearly laid down project. On the contrary, it is the outcome of a lengthy process where the image evolves through the coating of makeup, layers of matter, one colour leading to another, one stroke inducing another. It is at the same time a work of strength and delicacy, might and gentleness, simplicity and sophistication, but above all it is extremely poetic. Covered in black paint, Lin Jun Han, the elegant Asian model in the image Tumultes, produced on 17 September 2013 in Paris, expresses deep-rooted feelings, a lost innocence and the instability of things.

The artist

Damien Dufresne is an unconventional photographer: after building a reputation in the fields of cosmetics and advertising, working as an art photographer enables him to forget the rules of the fashion world. … 'Art photography provides me with real freedom; my imagination has free reign. I do not wish to be controversial but I stop at nothing. I follow my instinct. I create images that are meaningful and speak to me…’ … 'Drawing, painting and photography are a means of expression for me, to tell stories without the use of words, a form of language, a different way of communicating’… … ‘The technique is not an end in itself but a means of supporting creativity…emotion is the most important thing to me’ …. His strength: creativity. His uniqueness : texture and colour. His motivation: passion. Damien Dufresne has worked in Paris, Seoul, Milan, New York and Tokyo. He currently lives in Shanghai.
