Gallery Artist
Stéphane Joannes

Born 1975 in Besançon, lives and works in Saint-Martin, Ile de Ré, France

Rusty cargo boats are in the rope, for ever. The air and the water have the same dirty, slightly fat and transparent fluidity. Cargo boats die, slowly. Their invisible, uncountable and noisy passages, are marked with regular lines and layers on the water and the air, the air and the water. The metal soon will disappear, but not still. A last journey is impossible, (...) The death was made a beauty. A silent, permanent flight, watches with an infinite patience for carcasses emptied of these supertankers and for the taste of Joannes for the material appears in all its requirement.

Stéphane Joannes admits you frankly that when we have no genius, it is necessary to work and to work again. He works when the others calculate, enchants us when the others bring down us of boredom. It is a painter, the truth, the craftsman of the silence and the light.
