“Time, because it is so ﬂeeting, time, because it is beyond recall, is the most precious of human goods.” — William Somerset Maugham
JPS Gallery is thrilled to present Life’s Currents, the ﬁrst exhibition of Paris-based French artist Julieth Mars Toussaint, featuring new works inspired by the artist’s exploration around our everyday contemporary life. In an era of profound change and in the face of an uncertain future for all human beings, Julieth invites the viewers to pay attention to our feelings and life experiences through his use of light, colours, lines, textures and movements in his work by being completely present in the current moment without any distractions.
For the artist’s ﬁrst collaboration with a gallery in Hong Kong, he proposes his body of work with a focus on humankind’s relationship with the current society, and interior scenes of our everyday life. Julieth strives to reﬁne and reinterpret his techniques and palettes by continuing to develop his concept of psychological paintings with expressive brushstrokes and clashing and vibrant colours, unfolding his inner self and emotional states in front of the audience, rather than depicting true to life paintings.
Life’s Currents is a part of associated projects of the French May Arts Festival 2022.
