The artist was born in 1958; he lives and works in Paris.
Guy Limone’s work is deeply enshrined in the universe of painting, without being a tangible part of it. His work revolves around figurines, images from everyday life, and fluorescent tubes. He organises and ranks a multitude of elements according to a minimalistic and abstract mode, in an attempt to put some order in our chaotic world. The exhibition presents a retrospective of Guy Limone’s “Statistics”, that he has been developing for twenty-five years.
He assembles crowds of small figurines that “embody” abstract statistical data to which he gives a humanistic form. This work evolves with time, and confers great importance to colour, one of the main preoccupations of the artist.
