Jean-Baptiste Besançon121. Painting 195/130 (2023)
framed: 197h × 120.5w cm
Acrylic on canvas


To be in contact with the canvas can be “a fight” for Besançon, evoking strong emotions and “strange sensations”. His practice is not a direct response to personal events, and he avoids offering a rigid framework in which the art should be understood, preferring to contextualise painting as its own language.
