In this exhibition, Yamou has chosen to showcase unpublished works that demonstrate the artist’s maturity in the practice of painting.
As Marie Moignard explains in the catalog of the exhibition: « Yamou always advances on this fine frontier between abstraction and figuration ». The artist cultivates plants in the material of his paintings as if to turn his piece alive. His works offer alternative zooms that direct our gaze to unsuspected details.
Yamou was born in 1959 in Casablanca. After obtaining a DEA in sociology at the Sorbonne Paris IV, he exhibited in 1990 at the Etienne Dinet gallery in Paris. The works of Yamou have integrated several prestigious collections in Morocco and abroad.
