The Festive Holiday Season Auction

Artist: Olivier PAYEUR I like to draw the body, paint the skin, work on color.

The body as subject, for what it expresses and what we feel when we see it. It is a moving architecture and the drawing of this form is a starting point in my painting. With color comes another emotion, that produced by a colored composition regardless of what it represents. After having worked a lot on representations of the skin in painting under very diverse influences (some impressionists, Schiele, Kupka and espe- cially Freud), I gradually free myself from the temptation of verisimilitude. I focus on the double emotion produced by the subject and the color, the resulting tension of this. I paint to produce that emotion. Materials & Techniques: Oil on Wood Panel
