Almine Rech now represents Inès Longevial

Almine Rech is pleased to announce the global representation of French artist Inès Longevial, with a co-representation by Ketabi Bourdet in France. 
The gallery will present her work at Paris+ par Art Basel and Art Basel Miami Beach 2024. The artist's second solo exhibition with the gallery will be opening in Shanghai on May 31, 2024.

Inès Longevial studied Paula Modersohn-Becker, Georgia O'Keeffe and Niki de Saint-Phalle, all of whom clearly influenced her work. The love of color, which she continues to explore in everyday life, quickly leads her to painting and it was at the age of 8 that she painted her very first pictures. Her love of painting quickly became a daily occupation but, above all, a true calling: as soon as she could, Inès Longevial dedicated herself to studying applied arts in Toulouse, from where she graduated in 2013 with an MFA.

Self-portraiture became her favorite genre and also her playground: her palette and drawing give her the freedom to follow an imaginary and poetic dream. Her landscape-like faces unfold a candid, dreamlike universe that echoes the colors and moods of the outside world.
