Overview
Born in 1990, Inès Longevial lives and works in Paris. 
 
The painter grew up in the South-West of France. Eldest of her siblings, she would always rush for her canvas rather than through the fields. A cherished timeless moment for this dreamer, who would otherwise challenge her professors' authority.
After a degree in Applied Arts, she moved to Paris aged 23. Across massive oil self-portraits, the warm colors of her childhood are reborn. Under the influence of the masters of the early 20th century, she draws her inspiration from the light and nature. There is much more than meet the eye to her seemingly mute characters, which reveal themselves to be multiple and mystic, through a kaleidoscope of sensual shadows.
 
After exhibitions in Los Angeles, Berlin, San Francisco, Paris and New York, she presents her new works with gallery Ketabi Bourdet since 2020. After exhibiting her work at Christie's Paris, the Journal Gallery and the Alliance Française in New York, the painter had her first institutional exhibition at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Agen in the summer of 2022. Next November, the Van de Weghe Gallery in New York will devote a solo exhibition to her. In April 2023, Inès Longevial will take part in a group exhibition at the Almine Rech Gallery in Brussels. At the end of 2023, she will present a solo exhibition at Almine Rech in London.
 

 

Née en 1990, Inès Longevial a grandi dans le Sud-Ouest de la France. Après un diplôme d'arts appliqués, elle s'installe à Paris à 23 ans.

A travers de grands autoportraits à l'huile, les couleurs chaudes de son enfance renaissent. Sous l'influence des maîtres du début du XXe siècle, elle puise son inspiration dans la lumière et la nature. Ses personnages apparemment muets se révèlent multiples et mystiques, à travers un kaléidoscope d'ombres sensuelles.

 

Depuis 2020, l’artiste est représentée par la galerie parisienne Ketabi Bourdet. Après avoir exposé ses œuvres chez Christie’s Paris, à la Journal Gallery ou encore à l’Alliance Française à New York, la peintre a eu sa première exposition institutionnelle au Musée des Beaux-Arts d’Agen pendant l’été 2022. En novembre prochain, la galerie Van de Weghe à New York lui consacrera une exposition personnelle. En avril 2023, Inès Longevial prendra part à une exposition collective à la galerie Almine Rech, à Bruxelles. En fin d’année 2023, elle présentera une exposition personnelle chez Almine Rech, à Londres.
