Jean-François Laurent (JFL)


Jean-François Laurent-JFL was born in Lille in 1975. He painted with his own style since 1997 mainly with oil painting on canvas frame. It is inspired by lights, colors and transparencies. His work is influenced by the works of Lyonel Feininger, Robert Delaunay or Constantin Brancusi. In his paintings, Jean-François Laurent seeks to transform perspectives and light to show the invisible, the interdependence of things, beings and objects. The lines intersect, cut themselves off, deform to give a very structured composition and yet perfectly free and detached from the rules. The subject, ranging from figurative to total abstraction, remains as perceptible by the observer who can project himself in these familiar forms, while leaving him the possibility of seeing what he wants to see there, and to feel this that he wants. Light and shadows are everywhere in the web, so that from each point of view, understanding the work is different. Its touch is precise, it works with little material and with a range of reduced colors. He thus seeks to vibrate the canvas, to make it as alive and sensitive to his environment. JFL seeks that each work is to be rediscovered at every moment, that the one who observes it lets itself be caught by the composition, by the colors, by movement and that each time it lets itself be touched as if it was first time.
