About Yoann Lossel

Large landscapes fascinate me. I have always admired the strength that emerges from these visions. Before locking myself up into the workshop to represent these worlds, I am primarily a contemplative searching for spaces and atmospheres. I think this is the "outside the frame" that I pay particular attention to, this tiny nuance that transforms a space into a story. Time that shapes the tree and forces it to adopt a posture, the erosion of the stone which distinguished this very one from all the others, the wind modifying the moor and forcing the hawthorn to grow horizontally. These shrubs you identify in the hilltops of Devon or the paintings of Hokusai. 

I have a special affection for ruins : this spaces where time becomes tangible, somewhere between civilization and wilderness. I try to to offer these places a population whom inhabits them, which integrates them with consistency. To feed the depth of these scenes, I opted for the use of gold leaf which generate background by their way of reflecting light. Thus are born twilights and dawns. 


The iconography which I love, develops several reading levels, such as those of Symbolist Movement, Pre-Raphaelites, Art Nouveau, Arts & Craft ... Some painters have impressed me at the highest point, they feed me through their eyes and their approaches. These masters of the past and present, invite me to follow this way. Their explorations of classic themes accompany me everyday. 

With this in mind, I made my workshop, my press that I used to emboss my prints and I work with this love of the material and exploration of topics.


My work has been shown in France, Belgium, England, Australia and United States. I regularly participate in various exhibitions in several galleries in the United States of America like the Century Guild and the Nucleus Gallery in Los Angeles as well as Krab Jab Studio in Seattle. Spectrum has done me the honor to publish my subject "The Golden Age" in the case front cover of the number 20.
