Gil Pellaton's inaugural publication, combining his most recent works in a small but mighty volume (13 oils on canvas).
Table bombs, ice cream and balls of lights in nebulous doom and gloom: artist Gil Pellaton (born 1982, lives and works in Bienne, Switzerland) places his grotesquely twisted figures in imaginary scenes that hover between scenery-like reality and bizarre exaggeration. The large-scale oil paintings are dynamic and as specific as dreamlike worlds can be.
Pellaton's work was honored with the Anderfuhren Recognition Price in 2009 and the Swiss Art Awards 2010 - Kiefer Hablitzel Price. He exhibited at the Journal Gallery in New York and the Grand Palais in Bern.
