Exhibition / Gilles de Beauchêne, Saint Germain en Laye, France

Gilles de Beauchêne is an artist of great talent with a unique vision and immense technical skills, combining traditional and digital photography. Gilles has a personal body of work that comes together to create masterful images that capture the imagination. He offers a unique and futuristic vision of the changing world. His aesthetic and surreal-looking images are haunting and elegant. They challenge our sense of reality and are infused with a dreamlike quality. Drawing inspiration and subject matter from video games and comic books, from Tolkien, Burton or Bilal’s fantasy worlds, Gilles has us travel beyond the realm of dreams, from the infinitely great to the infinitely small, into his characters’ lives where desire and fantasy have full expression. His work is an intrusive and voyeuristic peek into modern men and women’s fragile relationship with society and with each other. Gilles has a virgin love of photography itself. He continually reinvents himself. And it shows. ‘‘Gilles de Beauchêne uses fantasy worlds to comment on the realities of Western society. His manipulation of perspective and size are both startling and engaging while his compositions are thoroughly considered, planned and executed with a strong idea and message.’’ – EYEMAZING
