    The landscape takes a decisive place in the work of the artist, where he forges his own pictorial language through the history of art marked by the Fauves, Matisse, Derain, Bonnard, Dufy. Vincent Bioulès is at the crossroads between modernity and the contemporary era, for whom painting is inseparable from a certain art of living.

    Bioulès explores the symbiosis of the elements – water, air, earth, fire – which generates artistic emotions in the artist, where he fully shares the sensuality and enjoyment of nature. His work is governed by his constant quest for pleasure and emotion felt on the spot. In the 1990s, he made several stays in Marseille in a studio at Villa Bianco. Here will be created a series of monumental paintings on the Catalans district, the entrance to the Vieudx-Port and the island of Maïre.

    Bioulès has made his Marseille compositions of a colorful voluptuousness, an ambitious mix between the elements, the constructions, the colors, the picturesque, the banal, the perfumes, the smells, the rumors of a teeming, disorderly and fragmented city. The deep imprint of the years of abstraction is still felt in the rigor of the compositions and the virtuoso arrangement of colors. He seeks subversion within tradition by revisiting the great pictorial subjects: the landscape, the portrait, the nude... with an extraordinary freedom tinged with abstract poetry. Certain canvases, such as 'Un soir l'étang', with the superimposed strips of color, are a nod to the abstract period now largely outdated and overcome.
