Loup Sarion was born in Toulouse in 1987 and lives and works in New York. He studied at the école nationale supérieure des Beaux Arts in Paris from 2010 to 2015 and attened the Cooper Union School of Art of new York in 2013. Loup Sarion’s practice lies between painting and sculpture, where color is subsumed by material. The works’ overlapping textures relate to the slippery nature of language, specifically to the tongue—the organ of language. Sarion pays particular consideration to color, surface and texture, often echoing the phenomena of condensation, skin perspiration, and bodily fluids in his work.
