I am pleased to organize my first exhibition of the works of the artist Thierry Lefort. His paintings will be presented in an ephemeral space in the Marais, for five days only.
"Si j’aime tant courir c’est que ma vie est à l’arrivée" oil on canvas, 146 x 89 cm
Due to the numerous requests, I propose to discover the works in preview during the month of August, in Paris:
I wish you a great summer.

The force and the characteristic of Thierry Lefort reside not only in his technique, but also and especially in the rereading that he proposes us of the world which surrounds him, in particular of the industrial and urban world. For his works, he privileges to paint "on the ground", seeking to seize the world in its globality, in the intensity and the accuracy of its lights, its forms and its colors. Thierry Lefort offers an enthusiastic and optimistic glance on places as diverse as stations, factories, bridges to banal parking lots. However, in the representations which he makes of these places, the human being is absent, but one suspects him craftsman of these contemporary landscapes. Far from wanting to "reproduce" the landscapes, he uses them, breaks them up, to sublimate the shadows, the colors, the masses, the shapes.
