Stuart Semple and The Pop-Art.

Stuart Semple ( né en 1980 ) est un artiste et conservateur britannique contemporain, basé à Londres. Connu pour ses grandes toiles, incorporant texte et images. Semple nous immerge dans la culture populaire en combinant la peinture figurative contemporaine avec le pop art. Le travail de Semple a des liens étroits avec le Pop Art de Richard Hamilton, mais en accentuant la peur latente et les menaces de notre société contemporaine plutôt que la culture et le glamour des consommateurs de Hamilton.

Personnellement, dans le même registre mais plus abouti, j’affectionne énormément le travail réalisé par Cédric Bouteiller qui utilise plusieurs techniques: vue photographique moderne, peinture contemporaine, graffiti, retouche numérique ou collage. Ces derniers travaux sont de véritables œuvres d’art.

From Stuart Semple:“My last series of work explored the idea that my generation and subsequent ones are the ‘Anxiety Generation’. It talked about the way that the horrors of history had been buried over time and how the media serves as a numbing and stimulating antidote to that hidden fear. In the new series of works for ‘My Sonic Youth’ I am charting the course to that state through the rise and fall of the teenager as a social category. The work draws comparisons between the inversion of public and private space and the rise of the Internet and ‘anti-social’ media. The work also draws on a wide remit of inspiration from the prophetic song lyrics of the music of my youth, found photography including imagery from recently released Seattle Police Department photos of Kurt Cobain’s death scene, archive images of Warhol’s scars and images from internet-trash culture.

Two things happened in the first half of 1994. Kurt Donald Cobain was found dead on the floor of his greenhouse and the Fraunhofer Society released the first software MP3 encoder. In that moment physical music became digital and the teenage dream became a nightmare with its physical spaces starting their journey to becoming virtual.”
