Cuturi Gallery is delighted to present Sneaky Treasures, a solo exhibition by French artist Idir Davaine (b. 1990, France). Adopting a seemingly playful and intuitive approach, Davaine returns with his polychromatic palette, coupled with his latest exploration of liberating forms in this series of nine paintings across canvas and paper.

Drawing inspiration from the environments we inhabit, Davaine wanders around with a camera in hand, spontaneously taking snapshots of everyday life. The artist has amassed a collection of visuals, of what could be said to be a constellation of different time and space continuums. As certain silhouettes start to emerge from this imagery, Davaine isolates and extracts various shapes and forms belonging to familiar elements, such as plants and trees, incorporating them into his paintings. This fragmented imagery goes through a process of manipulation, leading to the emergence of distorted forms taking on open and fluid qualities that play on a sense of unusual familiarity. Davaine’s painterly gestures of freeing such forms from their materialities, straddles between the real and the illusory, playing with our perceptions.
