Nicolas Dhervillers’ (b. 1981) photographic works span from small still lifes to monumental landscapes. In many of his images, theater, cinema, painting and photography coalesce.
Dhervillers’ scenes often pay homage to the great artists of the past, including Nicolas Poussin and Gustave Courbet. Other works use photographic processing to take the viewer into a fictional space outside of time.
In “Road Movie”, the artist changes actors. He introduces iconic cars and places them in wide, open spaces. Dhervillers creates fictional collages, narrative assemblages and he causes “temporal accidents”.
“Oculi” marks yet another milestone in the artist’s career. In this series Dhervillers chooses a spherical format. It resembles the “perfect form”, which refers to the divine and embodies the eye, lens and cosmos.
