Guillaume de Ubéda is a young French artist living and working in Bristol. Closely linked to his graphic design formation, his approach of art is mostly based on experiments on both matter and form.
This research is expressed through different mediums such as painting, printing, digital manipulations, sculpture, video & audio production. In experimenting on matter, either tangible or numerical, he explores different themes such as repetition, scale and gesture, often finding inspiration and meaning in nature and mythologies from around the globe. Acting as a critic of the post-modern idea of a de-spiritualised world, his work also focuses on the notions of transcendance and of the sacred.
Constently oscillating between shapeless chaos, harmonious cosmos, abstraction and figuration, de Ubéda’s contemplative and poetical evocations aim to refer, with both old and modern elements, to an apparently now out of reach vision of the world.
