Early works, 2013-2018

In his first works, Victor Gounel uses painting as a means to dream, to experiment, and especially to release emotional tensions. Engaging in the activity of painting brings about the ancillary effect of an ever-increasing awareness of the complex, unsettling activity of his internal life. Painting becomes a soothing possibility to externalize his inner states, resulting in cold-colored, jagged land- and seascapes, as well as in several intimate portraits.
