BIOGRAPHY

Gil Blache was born in Paris in 1953. At present, he lives either near Lyon or in Saigon. During his childhood and teenage years, he took his first art photographs and he shot his first short films which prefigured his later work. Whilst remaining close to the artistic world, he decided to resume his creation in 1999 after a break of nearly 15 years. Since then, as an observer of his time, he has shared his thoughts and feelings mainly through photography, through different series taken in both urban landscapes and in nature. Whatever the aesthetic approach, even though the themes treated may seem very different, the interpretation of the latter quickly shows they all translate the constant questioning of the artist, concerning the human being in his environment, appearances, confinement, dreams and escape… faced by the indifference of passing time.

 

Gil Blache est né à Paris en 1953; il vit entre Saigon et la région Des lors, observateur ancré dans son époque, il livrera ses réflexions et sensations principalement par l’intermédiaire de la photographie, au travers de différentes séries réalisées aussi bien en paysage urbain que dans la nature. Au delà d’une approche esthétique à partir de sujets apparemment très différents, les thèmes abordés se répondent et renferment les interrogations de l’artiste sur l’humain et son environnement: l’apparence, l’enfermement, le rêve et l’évasion… face à l’indifférence du temps.
