Jean Dubuffet: Delits Deportements Lieux De Haut Jeu - Max Loreau

***

Jean Dubuffet was the son of a wealthy French wine merchant but in spite of his bourgeois background he has chosen to spend his life in an ongoing process of reassessing the fundamentals values of art and culture and questioning his own originality as a painter, sculptor and artist. Throughout his career he reacted against conventional ideas of beauty and remained apart from any artistic movement.

ז'אן דובופה Jean Dubuffet צייר בסגנון שהוא כינה "אמנות לא מעובדת" או "אמנות גולמית" Art Brut. סגנון זה הוא ההיפך הגמור ממה שהיית מצפה מצייר מן האסכולה הצרפתית של מחצית המאה ה-20. ביצירותיו, טלטל דובופה בצורה רצינית את הנחות היסוד שעמדו בבסיס עקרונות האסתטיקה של זמנו ומחה כנגד ההגדרה המטעה של מושג היופי "שירשנו מן התרבות היוונית והאדרנו בתרבות שערי השבועונים". אני מסכים. וככה נראה היופי החדש:

Jean Dubuffet - 1947 - Dhotel Nuance d'abricot

Dubuffet adopted forms created outside the tradition of fine art, particularly urban graffiti, tribal art, and the creations of children and the insane: "In my paintings, I wish to recover the vision of an average and ordinary man without using techniques beyond the grasp of an ordinary man."

He created clotted surfaces by mixing oil paint with grit and urban detritus. By subverting the viewer's expectations of beauty and by elevating the mundane, Dubuffet called into question many of the assumptions on which art had traditionally been based.
