Portrait_Dumas

Georges Dumas was born in Chartres in 1975; he now lives in Greater Paris.

His career as a photographer began in the early 1990s; however an important turning point in his artistic approach came about when he espoused the Digital revolution in the early 21st century. At that point, he decided to endorse the on-going technological leap forward, exploring and developing its potentialities to the best of his abilities. This led him to leave behind the world of “pure” photography to embrace the world of the image in the larger sense of the word.

Georges’ work is characterized by a complex relationship with notions generally associated with photography such as scarcity, instantaneity and eyewitness accounts; his work is, rather, based on a strict timeless sense of construction in which the pursuit of meaning, form, “staging” and substance create strong ties with painting and sculpture.

First on the camera screen, then on the computer screen, and finally on the screen of the canvas to which he applies acrylic, Georges Dumas composes his works pixel by pixel, layer by layer, transfiguring flesh into stone, transforming the ephemeral into the eternal.
