Philippe MAZAUD (born in New York City, American and French) is an artist currently based in Portland OR. For well over a decade, his work revolved primarily around large-format, primarily B&W photography, mostly using 8 x 10" negatives: gelatin-silver prints, and subsequently, pigment ink prints and light boxes.
Over the past three years, the scope of his work has shifted and expanded significantly. It increasingly focuses on pictorial work that is distinct from, yet related to the photographic realm – at times directly, but in rather more abstract and "conceptual" ways as well.
He is the recipient of several awards and grants, in particular a grant from the Ministère de la Culture (France, 2004), an Artist Fellowship from the Nevada Arts Council (2005), and an Artist Fellowship from Artist Trust in Seattle (2008/2009). His work and photographic prints are included in the permanent collections of the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Nevada Museum of Art, and in many private collections in the United States and Europe. He has shown at Foley Gallery in New York, galerie Anne Barrault and galerie Hautefeuille in Paris, among others.
