Whether you’re an expert in the field or simply an amateur, the exhibition of Jonathan Ouisse will touch you, whether you like it or not, this particular collection of art is far from ordinary and in fact doesn’t just follow an artistic trend or aesthetic tendency to please. He can portray the universe in a disturbing light. Protagonists and animals gravitate in a world where they are mistreated. Often grotesque, exhibiting mockery and derision, it is full of symbols inspired by political matters, the media and childhood without ever becoming a mere cliché. Influenced by the pictorial gesture of the Italian Renaissance, the claroscuro, the style is precise and the lighting is dramatic. Firmly rooted in the nineties his work is influenced by an urban culture- and the traits associated with this culture will undoubtedly make an impression on those who see it.
The burlesque, a subversive process which ironizes a dramatic story tinted with misanthropy is often employed by directors such as Emir Kusturica, Federico Fellini and even Monty Python, all of whom have used or still use the Burlesque at its paroxysm. Jonathan created images in the same manner. In “Underground” “Roma” or “Le sens de la vie” the comical becomes the central idea and Jonathan Ouisse develops the process by mishandling the human race, both ridiculing it and laughing at its oversized vanity.
