The deliberately difficult art of Pierre Dunoyer
Max Feldman | Apollo | 23rd February 2023
Dunoyer is influential in his native France, but little known elsewhere. Perhaps that’s not a surprise. His works may be Instagrammable but not easily explained. He intends his careful abstractions to be “pure objects”, objects that are capable of “turning seeing into thinking”. What Dunoyer means is to deny “above all, that painting has any storytelling capacities”. From there, you are on your own.
