Polyphem: Charcoal abstract figurative drawing in black-red-white color on beige paper from Michel Batlle, signed 1987 Handworked frame, with white-gilded decoration, non-reflecting museums glass Biographiy Michel Batlle: Michel Batlle was born in Toulouse on April 3, 1946. His father had fled to France during the Spanish Civil War. Batlle begins making a name for himself in 1966 with “Psychophysiographie” – a term that describes the graphic representation of interrelations between the human mind and body (creating imaginary anatomies in which minds and bodies merge). From 1966 to 1969 the artist focuses on radiographic art and specially conceptualized photography. In 1970 he abandons abstraction in favor of a new Expressionist form of figural art. From 1971 to 1975 Batlle specializes in performance painting and land art, creating critical parodies on the eccentricities of the modern international art market. In 1980 he first issues the magazine “Axe Sud,” which centers on new figural art and English sculpture. During this period, Batlle’s work is closely related to the art of the “transavantgarde” movement. Up until the end of the 20th century, Batlle dedicates himself to humanist themes (e.g. in a series of works called “guerres culturelles”). He returns to strictly physical subjects in 2000. In keeping with his global spirit and intercultural attitude, the artist has studios in Toulouse and Niger (Agadez). The following institutions have purchased works by the artist: Fonds international d’art contemporain – Paris Kiev Museum – Ukraine Philbrook Museum – Tulsa, Oklahoma (USA) Museo de Olot – Girona (Spain) Museum of Modern Art – Belgrade (Serbia) Pinacoteca di Capo d’Orlando – Italy Institut français du Kyushu – Fukuoka (Japan).
