Annonciation au Couvent de la Tourette
Egg and gold on wood
If religious images are omnipresent in Malo Chapuy’s work, they are first and foremost the manifestation of an aesthetic fascination since the painter seeks above all to adopt the eye and technique of a 14th century painter. Thus, it is in a very subtle way that Malo Chapuy treats the architectural buildings in his painting so that, in spite of their modern appearance, the pictorial treatment and the perspective of the composition engage the spectator to imagine from the first approach a scene historically anchored in these ancient centuries before realizing his error.
