Painter/Sculptor

Fascinated by the basic sciences. A natural curiosity for technological innovations (creator of digital images). Influenced by many artistic currents or artists, classical and contemporary, such as the Italian renaissance, Bacon, Adami, cubism, Matisse, Rancillac, Giacometi, Rodin, Cragg but also by street art and comics. The main themes are oriented towards the concepts of movement, gesture, the written word as a code added to the image, evolution, balance, the instability of our universe, matter in the scientific and artistic sense of the term.

ÉCRITURES PICTURALES

This collection brings together a series of paintings created between 2006 and 2015 in medium to large formats whose main characteristic is to associate image and text in a close symbiosis. The written word is both an aesthetic and graphic element, enriching the image and a code linked to the deep meaning of the work. Often drawn in mirror image, the words or sentences written in several languages (French, English, Spanish, Latin) sound like a background noise, a subliminal communication to decode. Portraits or characters in a situation in an urban or imaginary universe, these oil paintings are also all turned towards the human figure, except for Isis, although if you look closely the central figure hides a body...

PORTRAITS ET CARACTÈRES

This collection is devoted to a series of human and animal portraits created between 2016 and 2022, which to date includes 24 small-format canvases and one larger diptych. These portraits are sometimes made from models or composed from the painter's imagination. Beyond resemblance or verisimilitude, the spirit of these portraits essentially illustrates characters, a personality, human or animal. The technique used is a nod to the ideas of cubism by adding the effects of movement and writing which are two very recognisable elements of Laurent Messager's work. The diptych, which presents two full-length portraits of a woman and a man, is a more committed work that clearly criticizes the overconsumption of mass distribution, its metal frame is itself made from the waste of this consumption.
