Georges Rousse Art

GEORGES ROUSSE (FRANCE, B. 1947)

Georges Rousse is internationally renowned for his ephemeral, one-of-a-kind installations and resulting photographs. Working at the intersections of photography, painting and architecture, Rousse converts abandoned or soon-to-be-demolished buildings into surprising visions of color and shape through the single-perspective of his camera lens. Using space as his raw material, Rousse translates his intuitive, instinctual readings of space into masterful images of several realities. The artist imagines his mise-en-scène by drawing, painting and/or building constructions that enable him to realize his vision for space. This may involve one or more primary shapes, painted letters, chalk, newspapers, wooden lattices and more. The resulting optical illusion is not mere Trompe-l'œil, but rather an otherworldly visual ephemeral and, above all, unforgettable. In 2016, Georges Rousse unveiled his first permanent public art installation, commissioned by The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, where it will remain permanently accessible to the Las Vegas Strip’s millions of visitors each year. Since his first grant in 1983 from MoMA PS1 (NYC), his work has been shown in numerous biennials (Paris, Venice, Sydney); exhibited in the Grand Palais (Paris), Hirshhorn Museum (Washington, D.C.), Haggerty Museum of Art (WI), House of Culture (La Paz, Honduras), Sívori Museum (Buenos Aires) and National Art Museum of China, among hundreds of others; it can also be found in the collections of the J Paul Getty Museum (Los Angeles, CA), Louvre Museum (Paris), National Museum of Modern Art (Paris), Museum of Modern Art (Vienna), Guggenheim Museum (NY), Brooklyn Museum (NY), Museum of Contemporary Art (La Jolla, CA), Chase Manhattan Bank Collection, La Salle Bank Photography Collection (Chicago) and Deutsche Bank Collection, among several others.
