About Laurent Allory :
Born in 1973, Laurent Allory studied at the Charpentier Academy of Plastic Arts in Paris (1992). He then turned towards visual communications and applied his talent with great success to the job of artistic director in an advertising firm.
A visit to an exhibition in 1995 prompted him to renew with his initial passion for painting. Since then, he has explored various paths, drawing his inspiration from any theme such as African art, particularly African masks, to European modern art with a tendency towards graphics. He has researched the effects of using a diversity of materials by sometimes integrating forms in plaster, or collages made with findings gathered here and there such as pieces of wood, old newspapers or somewhat outdated advertising artwork, with his compositions of acrylic on canvas.
After taking up photography in around 2000, through his research in urbanism, wasteland and building sites, and other desolate sites abandoned or due to be redeveloped, Allory has also used photography as a subject for his painting since 2005. Finding the use of black and white photography compatible with this choice of direction, he has succeeded in giving a special emphasis to the uncertain future of these desolate landscapes, and with his artists’ palette, he has revisited each photo with colour, giving them a new life.
Black and white meets with colour... The smooth surface of the photographic print plays with the contours of acrylics; the stillness of the atmosphere and the inertia of these décors meet with the energies and the movements of the painter’s brush.
