Born in Hungary in 1933, Alexandre Hollan moved to Paris in 1956. For more than fifty years he has developed a very profound body of work which he calls his “Research”. A search for the invisible vibration of trees and things: going to the limits of the “visible” to reach the true nature of what he is looking at. This major work is constructed through two motifs tirelessly repeated: that of the “tree” and that of still lifes, which he calls “Silent lives”.
Alexandre Hollan’s dialogue with many poets such as Yves Bonnefoy, Jacques Ancet, Philippe Jacottet and Claude Louis-Combet has given rise to more than 40 publications of art books and artists. Many European museums (Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest, Fabre Museum in Montpellier, Morandini Museum) exhibited his work and acquired his works for their collections.
