Tiwani Contemporary now represents Manuel Mathieu and is pleased to present Truth to Power his first solo exhibition at the gallery. Mathieu is known for his large paintings, which oscillate between abstraction and figuration. With a distinctive style, at once gestural and expressionist, he depicts the figure in mutation: testing its physical boundaries and merging with the adjoining environment. Departing from purely formal considerations and his work’s filiation from post-war abstract expressionism, Mathieu’s interest in deconstructing the human figure addresses the history of Haiti, in relation to ideas of dehumanisation and resistance.
