JULES DE BALINCOURT
In the French tradition one can always tell a great painter by his use of color. In this sense, French artist Jules de Balincourt is a great painter. The unearthly radioactive neon colors he uses bring life to the political angst and paranoia culture we have come to inhabit since 9/11. In his third solo New York show, de Balincourt presents new paintings that move away from his previous apocalyptic fantasies to examine the inherent banality that lies beneath.
