Wilde is pleased to present the first solo exhibition by Swiss artist Léopold Rabus from March 18 to May 1, 2021 in Geneva. The exhibition features hyper-realistic paintings that reflect on the way we qualify the living and aim to represent its essence in a way that language can’t.
Léopold Rabus’s practice specializes in oil paintings and installations, mainly inspired by his immediate surroundings in the rural context of his hometown. Growing up in a family of artists, he was immersed from an early age in a world of surrealism that now characterizes his oeuvre. Rabus’s figurative work depicts a reality with a spooky yet witty character. His paintings often portray individuals and animals in gloomy scenes where the boundaries of fantasy and reality are blurred.
