A question of size
The ancient tragic playwright Euripides, whose texts have descended through the centuries, wrote: "Once you have exceeded the measure, there is no limit". If excess can be reprehensible in terms of morality, art is where excess has its place! Particularly regarding artwork size. Think especially of the disproportionate fresco dimensions that today cover the walls of religious buildings and whose authoritative example is: ‘The Last Judgment’, that Michelangelo painted inside the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican.
Contemporary art is a moment in the history of art committed to the special importance of the idea of space in art. Starting from a pessimistic observation, sure that artists had nothing more to contribute to painting, some contemporary painters created large paintings who redefined a type of relationship with space. Street art artists also create monumental works in urban settings that transform the face of a city.

Our large painting artists
In painting, large format, far from being a folly, can serve an artist's intention.
The French artist, Ferle often has large-scaled canvases, always vertical. In a non-figurative way, she manages, with great economy of effort, to create the impression of depth. The large size further enhances an immersive effect by drawing the viewer into the canvas. The art historian Emmanuel Dayde has also written about Ferle's large abstract paintings, saying that: “they open a door into another space, a fourth dimension".
The Spaniard, Ramon Enrich creates large figurative paintings in which he represents enigmatic spaces. The dimensions of his paintings are just as interesting as his pieces as they are the playgrounds for geometric shapes and bright colors, depicting buildings with minimalist architecture.
