Yann Le Bec’s exhibition, Dog Days is a collection of new paintings that play out like the stills from a French thriller. Yann's monochromatic paintings depict seemingly innocuous scenes, many from the French countryside; a naked torso moist with perspiration, a lone walker on an isolated road, a swimmer and a man looking through trees.
Beneath the surface of this postcard-like scenery there is a slight feeling of unease, a sense of longing and in some scenes fear. Why is the swimmer reaching for a knife? What is the sad figure on the bed contemplating? Will the girl make it out of the way of the car coming round the bend?!
