About the artist OTT Xavier

My paintings symbolize creative thinking patterns. I give visuals to listen to. "Who speaks, who hears, who listens?" I think that observing and giving these imaginary characters a regular voice will stimulate your creative thinking. It is your thoughts that these characters will express. That's why my characters are full of emotions. Often some even change their expressions according to the points of view from which they are viewed. They allow us to change our point of view and to make our reflections evolve. For a long time, I first painted the coming of information in an abstract way. An accident at the workshop cut me off from the use of my hand for two years. It was during my re-education that I decided to overcome the handicap and to arrived to paint my characters as I had always drawn them. Since then, I have been designing progressive installations-painting: compositions (see Instagram @ottxavier).

No education. Only self construction. Very curious. Inspired by life and culture. An atypical career path thirsty for freedom of expression has led Xavier OTT to be attentive to non-verbal expressions. In a dialogue with matter, he reveals perceptions of the hidden part of life. "Why do ideas suddenly spring up? Can we anticipate their coming? Which atmospheres are beneficial to the imagination? ». It was by asking himself these questions that Xavier Ott embarked on sculpture, then painting, seeking to symbolize the encounter with the germ of the idea. On the basis of cartoon-like drawings, Xavier Ott creates paintings symbolizing thought patterns, with characters animated with multiple expressions. The artist designs painting installations and compositions. The paintings can occupy several places in the space, they are connected to each other. The expression of the whole is changing. The objective is to invite the viewer to let himself be wandered through the many details of the paintings.
