About the work :

Penelope, letter to Ulysses is an abstract oil on canvas by French contemporary artist Guy Oberson. 

This painting is part of the ‘Density of an absence’ series, inspired by the ancient author: Homer’s work: the Odyssey, in which Ulysses and Penelope are key figures. This abstract oil painting is a direct pictorial reference to Penelope’s letter to Ulysses; it was not written by Homer, but by Ovid in The Heroids, in a collection of imaginary love letters by mythological heroines. Often commented on, this missive vacillates between criticisms due to impatience and a woman's love letter to her husband. This ambivalence is found in the painter's pictorial choices: the red colour - surrounded by more sinister colours - can evoke a painful passion, while the abstract forms, distorted by drips of paint, add in the creation of a gloomy atmosphere.

The abstract or semi-abstract oil paintings are a very important part of Guy Oberson's work and can be compared with his figurative black chalk works. In creating his abstract works, he gains his inspiration from memory or his imagination, free from any iconic constraints.

“Art allows me to poetically restore my relationship with intimacy, otherness and the sacred. […] Being an artist is above all a daily attempt to contribute to the freedom of opinion, to independent thought and to the retransmissionof energy and beauty.” Guy Oberson, interview with Philippe Piguet (Art absolutely no. 78, July-August 2017).
