«A survey says that most people visiting museums and galleries spend an average of 7 seconds in front of each artwork... a bit short to remember all the details of a piece of art! So I thought: “Since there is no difference, let’s take the details away!”

The choice of the “pixel” as the principal compound of this work comes from the images we deal with today: computers screens, cameras, iPods and phones, all of them are made of pixels... and the more they are, the better the quality.

The way we visit museums is similar to the way we live our lives: running! So my work says: “let’s try to slow down and spend more time with our friends and family!”»

Swiss artist Stéphane Ducret was born in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1970. In his continuous search for inspiration and new experiences, Stephane seeks profound connections with people from various backgrounds and cultures. In order to fulfill his constant strive for a mixed and passionate life, he has spent significant time in Geneva, New York (USA), Porto (Portugal) and recently settled down in Buenos Aires.

Since the late 1990’s his work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows. In the early 2000’s his Rebirth of the Cool series earn him a wider recognition followed by the prestigious Leenaards Foundation award in 2003.

But his international recognition comes with the exhibition at Synopsism Gallery: The Origin of the World (2007). Stéphane Ducret based his work on great masterpieces of art history.

His works are incorporated in many institutional and private collections.
