Incorporating both sculpture and painting into his work, Christophe Leroux navigates seemingly contrasting visual terrains. Starting with flat, unused sheets of aluminum, he crumples and bends, which serves as a surface for his mixed-media pieces, Leroux alludes to the industrial and urban. His imagery consists of an original combination of undulating, expressionistic lines, sumptuously rippling metal, and stenciled text, numerals, and graphics that evoke urban and industrial references. By juxtaposing a more painterly style with rote street-art insignias, the work creates an unexpected dialogue between divergent aesthetic approaches.
