Painting outside any conceptual reference close to an American post abstract-expressionism, the artwork of Étienne Zucker work is inspired by 20th centuries primitivism, Munch symbolism or German postwar expressionism.

Fascinated by spaces where the relation of man to nature is constantly at risk, Étienne Zucker often painted wild and undefined, abandoned places, human figure crosses between the layers of images and transparency. Étienne Zucker composes his paintings using various photographic sources: movies, newspapers, postcards, tourist brochures, advertisement.

In his video, Étienne Zucker continues his work as a painter. He combines drawings, photographs, Based on a work video overlay material - game textures, pure images and mixed effects of solarization, halo, developed roaming.

His works fall outside an unambiguous reading. They always suggest a distance with a subject.

Etienne zucker graduated from École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts in Paris, and work in Montreuil
