Reproduced on a very elaborate monochrome background, the documents have an informative value as well as an aesthetic value.

Diao gives painting an effective conceptual dimension: focused on information and content. And while he gives a central role to information, he also affirms the irreducible presence of painting, which makes the role of documents more complex to define, as the essays in this book show.

This book is taken from the conferences of the international colloquium "Painting and document: David Diao" which was held in 2014 in Strasbourg. With texts by Hélène Chouteau-Matikian, Michael Corris, Felix Gmelin, Catherine Grout, James Harithas, Jean-Marc Huitorel, Marjolaine Lévy, Joseph Masheck, Stéphane Mroczkowski & Alexandra Pignol, Marshall N. Price, Ramon Tio-Bellido, Hiram To , Marjorie Welish
