Teddy Ros is a French artist based in Switzerland, independent, whose initial practice which still nourishes all his work is drawing, but who practices painting, digital palette, video, modeling and sculpture indiscriminately. His plastic experiments, which have been carried out obsessively since he was old enough to hold a pencil, can be summed up in three major cycles which are as many stages of life and consciousness: “Dark” period, with a practice teeming with drawings expressing the dystopia of the world and inner unhappiness; period of “visionary art”, resulting from several long and intense interior experiences in the Amazonian forest and from a certain metaphysics; finally the return to more recent works which constitute a balance between all these experiments. In each of these periods, he produced a large corpus of works which testify to the tireless, necessary and indispensable quest for an identity based on facts that are certainly invisible, but real in his eyes, beyond illusions, and whose density Teddy Ros tries to share with us.
Today, after having practiced different types of meditation and introspection for a long time, he finds himself at a crossroads. A maniac for details as we can see both in the drawings and in his modeling, he nevertheless seeks to go beyond precision, in his opinion an illusionistic smokescreen, to reach the essence. It is from this fertile paradox that the most accomplished works are born. At first glance, his work, full of references to comics, illustration, the world of manga and fanzines, could seem anecdotal or even adolescent. But it would be a shame not to delve further into the incredible richness of the signs used, including their second degree and their humor in reference to popular cultures. Here a deep sadness calls upon us. Here it is rather a question of “drawings – worlds”, a sort of mandalas freed from their shackles which express a tautology. And here again an incredible deployment of attention to detail to precisely go beyond form to devote oneself to the spirit…
