« The truth is never in what it is said but in what it is perceived. To this end, when I decide to make art, I avoid saying things by using words for not wanting to violate the freedom to wander, ramble and constantly reconsider. »
Olivier Dubois-Cherrier is an experienced French visual artist based in the US, who has exhibited his work internationally. Olivier expresses himself through Land art, painting, sculpture, , video, photography and poetry. His Caribbean family background deeply influenced his path to art as well as the content he portrays in it, and he has lived a nomadic life for many years now. Typically painting with thick impastos and using additional materials such as sand, soil, grass and found objects, he composes works that contemplate natural environments and pose philosophical questions. His themes include time, ego and death.
