Samson Mercy

Samson Mercy is a painter and educator based in Paris, with a formation in contemporary art and classic painting, sculpture and drawing. Its art brings together traditional techniques and a contemporary vision. He works mainly in oil, acrylic, ink, charcoal and graphite. Samson has set up artistic programs including workshops, visits and art courses in order to make the world of Art more accessible to artists, painters and art lovers. Some of his workshops have been designed to resolve the French bureaucratic obstacles to which painters wish to learn art according to the traditional method of master's copy. "I see the world in visual terms: for me, to create is See. I see the beautiful world, but dangerously ruthless and violent. I like the challenge of creating something as real as I see. My work must consist of sensory and tactile values. The painting is, for me , the answer to the enigma of the gaze. I use painting as a tool to understand the world in which I live and as a kind of diary. Number of my paintings are made in a single session or first blow, In order to capture the essence of the pattern without superfluous information, in a short period of time, focusing on visual experience. For large format paintings that require several sessions, I use the techniques of old masters and modern, working among others with oil paint, acrylic, charcoal. . I use the techniques of "wet on wet" or "wet on dry". I studied under the direction of Israel Hershberg and many other great painters for four years. I have continued to work to improve my technique in the past five years, including two years as a copyist in the Louvre. I copied several masterpieces (Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, Nicolas Poussin, Raphaël and others), and continued to create my own personal and original paintings during this period. And in the United States has opened up new perspectives on light and landscapes, and made it possible to study the ancient masters in their museums. My meetings with Western art inspired me to the point that I try to incorporate these achievements into my works. "Sam Rachamin
