Lives & Works in Paris, France
Josué Comoe migrated to France at the age of seven. He studied photography and video at the ENSA in Paris, however soon after he realised that painting and drawing were his preferred mediums of expression. Comoe's work destabilises binaries by developing techniques that produce a black light from which reliefs and reflections emerge, calling into question the historical oppositions between light and darkness, materiality and spirituality, and body and spirit.
He stages representations of the body that turn metaphysical questions into the political questions of the incarnate. Comoe's work is nourished by the sacred, and punctuated by references and codes that belong to spiritual cultures, mysticism, and esotericism. Through a combination of economy of means and sophistication, Comoe produces works of great graphic power through which the black ink of the pen creates an endless abyss.
