Galerie Documents 15 is pleased to announce its first exhibition of Mahi Binebine
A major painter of his generation, Mahi Binebine explores the issue of humanity and extreme conditions. His figures, reduced to silhouettes, intertwining and colliding bodies, are confined but undefeated. They inhabit a hostile and troubling world. Of great plastic beauty, rich in tension and confrontation, the work of Binebine evokes loneliness and despair, but also harmony and joy.
Internationally known for his monumental paintings, the artist presents here a series of recent works, collages in small square format. '' Exploring new techniques in a small format allowed me to focus on the essential'' said Binebine. Influenced by artists such as Goya, Picasso and Bacon, Mahi Binebine constantly explores the strength and dignity of the human face of horror and despair
