					Pascal Lièvre

Born in 1963 in Lisieux, France

Since his first video “Lacan – Dalida” which received a lot of awards, Pascal Lièvre continues to
create short movies (Abba Mao, The Axis of Evil,...) and to paint large canvas. His paintings are
becoming bigger and bigger and he uses now very bright colors. His main theme is still working
on silhouettes from famous paintings which weighted in the History of Art. His video are usually
inspired by well known pop songs, slowed down or corrupted.

In his work about History of Art, Pascal Lièvre is playing with the original painters’ lines but also
with the established historic discourse. For example, In Ucello’s “Battle of San Romano” he
transfers the original scene into a pink background with the battle’s characters becoming black
silhouettes. All the mathematic construction (the perspective) from the painter to be the most
realistic possible are destroyed and translated into another language. The result is quite
outstanding (pop monochrome with shadows) and can be seen in most of his paintings even
though the inspiration and thoughts about the original piece may differ due to their historic
meaning, construction and date of creation.
