Press release

Almine Rech Shanghai is pleased to present Alexandre Lenoir's fifth solo exhibition with the gallery, also his first solo show in China. The show will be on view from September 23 to October 29, 2022.

Most vivid is the smell, the volatile emanation of the moist tropical air, ascending amidst webs of exuberant vegetation. Confronting Alexandre Lenoir’s paintings is almost a ‘molecular affair’.[1] However, the activation of the olfactory through the visual, a quasi-synesthetic experience does not always occur in every ‘good’ picture depicting a tropical landscape. What’s at play here is not merely the imagery but also the materiality, embodied in the rugged terrain of the pictorial surface, through an impressively laborious and lengthy process in the artist’s studio.
