Born in 1960, Jean-Philippe Duboscq lives and works in Brussels. Duboscq is a graduate of ENSAAV, LaCambre, in Brussels. His first pictorial research is done with gunny, pigments, pumice and sand. By the end of the 1990’s, he made a radical change in the architecture of his paintings and drawings, which began to appear torn, suspended and mobile.
He also developed a passion for music and became a composer, which allowed him to work in collaboration with Peter Dowsbrough, Bram Bogart and other artists.
For many years, the artist has made conceptual works. The search for an aesthetic through an idea rather than through a desire for control. The work appears to the artist in permanent mobility, putting into perspective what the artist paints.
Duboscq’s current work is lively and daring. His intuitive movements lead him to resistances, deviations. A kind of deformation of the form whose subject is the painting. He creates a world with a bebop tempo, blurred, made of saturated colours and shifted rhythms, whose space in perspective opens to an interior light.
In Duboscq’s current work, one senses a desire to bring the pictorial material as close as possible to physical constraints and to free himself from control and composition to leave room for the unexpected. This is reflected in his fluid and diaphanous backgrounds made of drips and absorptions of paint, as well as in his vivid and daring writing. His intuitive movements lead him to resistances, deviations. A kind of deformation of the form whose subject is the painting.
