Alexandre Hollan

Born in 1933 in Hungary, lives and works in Paris

Arrived in Paris in 1956, Hollan developed in France his search for a painter and draftsman around two motifs tirelessly taken up: that of “the tree” and “Silent Lives”.  An obstinate quest for the invisible vibration of trees and things: to go to the limits of the “visible” to see.

His dialogue with numerous poets such as Yves Bonnefoy, Jacques Ancet, Philippe Jacottet and Claude Louis-Combet drawn up to more than 40 publications of art books and artists.
