pouke halpern Artist Bio:
Born and raised in Paris, France. Resides in the San Francisco area. attracted by the quiet eye of Morandi on certain days and the frenzied anguish of Francis Bacon on others. My paintings represent a transformative process. I start with drips of color and large swatches of bold tones scrawled over with statements that reflect my current emotional and intellectual state. Often it’s an angry me, disturbed by injustice, violence and fear. But eventually, as I continue working on the canvas, I find a way to integrate that angry me with the rest of me…the more balanced me that seeks harmony in domestic objects - like vases, glasses or floral distractions - that remind us of the essential beauty of the world around us. Like the objects I draw, my paintings are “pretty” vessels that still contain, both literally and figuratively, the raw emotions present at the start of my creative journey.
