Gustave CAMUS (Châtelet, 1914 - Mons, 1984)
Oil on fabric, 120 X 50 cm
At the beginning of his work, the artist takes as a starting point the realism intimist of Nervia. In 1950, it remains in Bretagne where he discovers Gauguin. His art is purified, stylized with the use of colors sharp. It wonders about the human nature by in particular using the horizontal ones and verticals. The artist reaches maturity in the years 50-60 . In 1961, the architect Jacques Dupuis builds his house in Mons. At that time, with the manner of Fernand Leger, it uses flat tints of colors and a frontal linear structure. These topics are then the beach, the ports, mechanics, robotics where bathe a certain anguish with a modern vision of the man. He falls under the expressionnism in Walloon decorative matter which is characterized by a rejection of the not-figurative tendencies
