Julien Saudubray (1985, Paris) lives and works in  Brussels, Belgium. 

Julien Saudubray

After having experimented with what he calls the mobility of painting and its multiple applications, Julien Saudubray now synthesizes his experiments in a practice he defines as mechanistic. By reducing subjectivity to a minimum through the methodical application of layers of colour on the wall or paper, he evacuates the subject from the painting to reveal its internal structure. From the reduction of the latter to an arbitrary and repetitive action, sweeping, sanding, erasing, adding, paintings emerge as catches between two times, almost resembling bad digital prints, and which perpetually replay their possibility of success. With each brushstroke I oscillate between ecstasy and boredom, observing myself painting like an absurd machine programmed on a Beckettian formula: "To miss more, to miss better."


Julien Saudubray graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2012, the artist had since many exhibitions in Europe, and his first solo exhibition in the USA is scheduled for late 2022.
