Galerie Koo proudly presents joint exhibition of French – Belgian artist Jean Philippe Duboscq & American artist Jon Poblador

The exhibition is an associated project with the French May Arts Festival 2023.

In a world preoccupied with technology, there is something remarkable about painting. It connects us to the oldest and most basic forms of human self-expression.

Jean Philippe Duboscq’s textured works and Jon Poblador’s minimalistic paintings compose an exhibition where experimentation, the bold mastery of know-how and the power of the medium converge. Each with their own specificity and identity pays particular attention to composition.

Depending on the period, Duboscq expresses art through materiality, volumetry, abstraction, lyrical abstraction, and today, through a more conceptual approach to painting. Throughout Poblador’s career, as he matured and more clearly defined his message, specific patterns or motifs often repeated in his art: compositions, techniques, processes, titles, etc.

In the artists’ eyes, creating was a fundamentally abstract pursuit. By immersing the viewer in pure colour and form, they hoped to generate a raw, emotional drama capable of reflecting the full spectrum of the human experience.
