Alexandre LENOIR

Born in 1992, he lives and works in Paris & Casablanca (Morocco).

Representing landscapes of vegetation, interiors and buildings, the works of Alexandre Lenoir often feature characters as ephemeral as memories. Like flashbacks or dreamlike landscapes, an ambiguous hedonism inhabits these visions, drawing on the multiple identities of the artist himself. His paintings consist of multiple layers of color washes combined with an elaborate stencil technique.
In this “tremor of time” that accompanies this complex procedure, the photographic snapshot that presided over it is erased and we search in vain for the exact image that escapes.

Alexandre Lenoir graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2016 then moved to Casablanca in 2018 to further develop his practice. Back in Paris, he exhibited in solo shows at the Caisse de Dépôts (2021) and the Sisley Foundation (2020), as well as in a group at the Thalie Foundation (2021) and the Lambert Collection in Avignon (2017). He won the Prix Marie-Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre (2020) and Thaddaeus Ropac (2016).
