David Lynch – Circle of Dreams: prints and short-films (February 23 – May 19 2013)

David Lynch – Circle of Dreams
prints and short-films
From February 23 to May 19 2013

 
During spring 2013, Le Centre de la Gravure will feature David Lynch’s lithographs for the first time in Belgium. His first experimental short films, at the edge of fine arts and animation, will come along with the prints.

David Lynch is particularly known for his cinema.  It was this obsessive desire to see his paintings moving, which led him to make films. His first short films are conceived as moving paintings and launch his transition to cinema. David Lynch has maintained his interest in the fine arts and has produced, in particular, drawings, photographs and paintings. For him, the important thing was to find the appropriate mood and medium each time to convey the ideas that came to his mind.

In 2007, David Lynch discovered lithography in a Parisian atelier, Idem.  His first lithographs were made from abstract drawings on post-it and became the Paris Suite. Since then he goes back every year to produce lithographs or woodcuts, in this atelier where Picasso, Matisse or Giacometti used to work.
