Painter to Nantes - France
Frédéric Mazère, born in 1965, lives and works in Nantes. Sponge of daily life, blotting paper of hazards, the artist first sought to express himself through words. With a blank page and a wooden pencil in hand, nothing comes out. Yes; lines, silhouettes, faces, other faces, and still other faces...
Initially in black and white, the drawing is constructed following a spontaneous path, connected to the author's feelings. "At the beginning, it is chaotic and then a story begins to take shape", the faces form complex and instinctive silhouettes. Then comes the colour, random explosions or controlled touches. Drawing, painting, volume, busts or even letterboxes... The artist's range of experimentation is widening, always with freedom as a guide.
