François Patoue , born in France 1992, works and live in bruxelles.
Represented by Sebastien Ricou.
The act of painting, the romantic relation i have with painting history, and the fact that there is no separation between my work and me, are to me « ways » to apprehend.
Some traces or gestual brush strokes are like sensitive memories, others come clearly from the painting itself. We can talk about epiphany.
The sensible point is that we can not know when and where the painting or the act of it, start or finish.
Finally it’s about frontality resulting from a balance between expressionism and a deep work on color, harmony and composition.
