Force-fed on TV and an all-American mind-junk diet, Jules de Balincourtâ€™s paintings are crafted with democratic gusto. Painted on board, De Balincourtâ€™s faux-naif style paintings are underscored with grainy DIY texture. His folk-art cum genius approach to painting offers a free-for-all licence for his witty and apocalyptic social commentary. In Ambitious New Plans, Jules de Balincourt comically pictures a parliament of evil: starched shirts and pink faces, the order of world business is darkly portrayed as akin to a teetotallersâ€™ craps table. Caught somewhere between a 1960’s cold war film still and anti-Bush propaganda, Jules de Balincourt swaps the blazing crimson of Communism for down-home barn-door red.
