Georges Tony Stoll


Georges Tony Stoll was born in 1955 in Marseille, he lives and works in Paris

Graduated from the Fine Arts Academy in Marseille, he became well known for his photographs even if his work is deployed on different media such as painting, video or installations, for exploring what he names the "domains of abstraction". Reattached to an "aesthetics of intimacy" by several art critics such as Elizabeth Lebovici and Dominique Baqué, 
his work is nevertheless distinguished by a rather marked plastic and pictorial approach, and by his taste for staging bodies and objects. Although, the symbolism arising from this fusional elements escapes any analytical discourse; rather it reaches a certain contemporary form of contemplation, simply inscribing itself in the present, telling nothing, letting beauty to emerge (Éric de Chassey).

He has participated to several exhibitions at the Collection Lambert in Avignon (2022), at the Musée de l'Armée, Hôtel national des Invalides, Paris (2021), at BAL, Paris (2018), at Haus der Kunst in Munich (2016), at the Centre Pompidou, Paris (2016, 2015, 2012, 2005), at the Abattoirs, Toulouse (2013), at the Musée Granet in Aix-en-Provence (2013), at Galerie Poggi (2012), at the Centre d'art contemporain La Galerie à Noisy-le-Sec (2011), at the FRAC Alsace (2009), at the Grand Palais (La force de l'art 02, 2009), at the Rencontres de la Photographie, Arles (2017, 2016, 2008), at the Grand Palais, Paris (La force de l’art 02 en 2009), at the Centre Georges Pompidou (2003, 2014-2015), at the Villa Médicis in Rome (2010), at White Cube in New York (2000), at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris (2004), at Glassbox (1999).
