Le Temps des Cocus

Each piece depicts an iconic male character that viewers will recognize from history, literature and pop culture. The theme his subjects share in this series is having lived with a certain degree of passion, then suffered a related betrayal.

While his constantly evolving medium intertwines circuitous fibers and metallic filaments, Decluuz’ striking, large-scale tapestries are much less the product of loom mechanics than of the hand, mind and spirit.

The portraits each feature a fine-tuned oxidation process tailored to the subject that invites the viewer to retrieve their own memories of these tales, take note of their differences and similarities, as well as ponder their historical contexts, perhaps comparing them to characters in the world as we know it.
