Popup Painting’s ‘artist of the Week’ is Paul Cézanne.
Paul Cézanne was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter. Cézanne used repetitive, exploratory brushstrokes and planes of colour to create his paintings.
The artist regarded color, line, and “form” as one and the same thing, or inseparable aspects for describing how the human eye actually experiences nature. Unsatisfied with the Impressionist idea that painting is primarily a reflection of visual perception, Cézanne sought to make of his artistic practice a new kind of analytical discipline. In his hands, the canvas itself takes on the role of a screen where an artist’s visual sensations are registered as he gazes intensely, and often repeatedly, at a given subject.
