Published on occasion of the exhibitions Jean-Charles Eustache: From Dusk to Dark at FRAC Auvergne and Jean-Charles Eustache: From Dark to Dusk at Galerie Claire Gastaud. Publisher's description: Jean-Charles Eustache is a graduate of the Ecole Superieure d'Art de Clermont-Communaute and he worked, during his studies, to build a pictorial work whose first orientations served as a base for all that followed in the following years. The first works were already landscapes laden with mysterious atmospheres, expanses of abandoned buildings, architectures without quality, atmospheres which vacillated between a romantic perception of the world and a dark charge which was not without evoking the painting by Edward Hopper or the films of David Lynch. Jean-Charles Eustache's paintings have always maintained a very particular relationship to the gaze, to the way in which an image is inscribed, vibrates, partially disappears, affirms itself simultaneously as a truth and as a lie, allows itself to be circumscribed while escaping. Jean-Charles Eustache is, like other painters he is fond of (Luc Tuymans, Raoul de Keyser in particular), very interested in the supposed obsolescence of painting as a medium capable of accounting for the world, also very interested in the way in which the images persist or not when they are seen and, possibly, carried over to painting.
