Guy Oberson Art

Swiss, b. 1960
Guy Oberson’s paintings, produced in black chalk or in oil, plunge the observer into an ambiguous and timeless universe. Figurative and abstract themes confront and complement each other in his work. The artist shades the black chalk with a multitude of vertical streaks which alters the perception of the subject. This last is thus taken apart, loosing body, but gains in expressive intensity. For around 15 years the artist has exhibited his works in European museums, contemporary art spaces, foundations, fairs and galleries. In 2014 he was awarded the Bédikian Foundation Award (Paris) and in 2016 he received the State of Friborg Cultural Award (Switzerland). “Being an artist is above all a daily attempt to contribute to the freedom of the gaze, autonomy of thought, and the retransmission of energy and beauty.”
