Who is Jean-Michel Meurice?

July 1 2022|Categories: Artists news|Tags: |

From 1985, Meurice was involved in the establishment of the culture channel La Sept, which was renamed ARTE in 1991. The station's co-founders are Pierre Bourdieu, Michel Guy and Georges Duby. In his own art he initially (1960s and 70s) focused on colorful work that often consists of bands of contrasting colors and surface treatments with scratches, splashes, traces and stripes. In this context, he was also co-founder of the Supports/Surface movement. At that moment he also starts working with surfaces such as shower curtains that provide him with a ready-made pattern. From the eighties he focuses more on applying stencil-like patterns over landscapes. Those patterns sometimes represent organic shapes such as leaves and flowers. He also uses elements of artworks he photographs while traveling as a basis for patterns. In the creation of many of the patterns, he is sometimes strongly inspired by the motifs from Matisse's work.
