Artist Statement of Thierry Faure

In 1998, Thierry Faure began to draw and to paint (oil and palette-knife) on the theme of music, strings: cello and violin. Then he came to abstract painting, abstract-figurative (painting inspires the theme) and then a quest of light and transparency on the theme of the stained-glass.

These themes are not exclusive, sometimes the animal painter goes for a walk in the farm yard: Poultry, calves and cows, even pigs. A short visit to the court, the bench and barking barristers. Happy or sad crowds walking in the roads, drinking in pubs etc…. The theme is always and only a pretext, it must imperatively give way to the painting: quest of harmony, structure and rhythm. All is allowed except nonsense
