Discover Jean-Paul SCHMITT



verified icon


Jean-Paul Schmitt dominates the landscapes of the countryside around Saint-Martin-en-Haut, as he did for his melancholic attics and bucolic interiors. He dominates the oppositions of colours and forms are born to express the quietude of his home, the peace of an interior, a pond sublimated by the snow. He dares the format, the colour, the high pastes to install his subject at a summit, where he wishes our vigilant attention to be attached. He now expresses himself in a series on café interiors that New Yorkers familiar with the Café Society would not have repudiated. Painting reigns. It is powerful. It will delight us for a long time..." Alain VOLLERIN art critic, member of the International Association of Art Critics

There I create stories, encounters. There, through the murmurs, I imagine intimate and unmentionable secrets. There, I catch tender or indifferent glances, amused or sad, lively or lost in the vagueness of a suspended time. Strangely, the street enters the café with me. Its tags, its graffiti, the design of the buildings The street's tags, graffiti, and the design of the buildings are reflected in the café's posters, alcohol brands, and logos. As much as I flee from cafés where incontinent television sets spew out images and sounds in a continuous stream, I also flee from and sounds in a continuous stream, I like those where the muffled sounds of the outside enter lightly, mingling with those of the inside. which mingle with those of the inside... I began the bulk of this series of genre scenes in 2017. It now includes I started this series of genre scenes in 2017, and it now includes nearly fifty creations.
