Pierre Filliez: Oil paintings and mixed techniques on wood and canevas

_____

« I paint imaginary universes, oil paintings and mixed techniques on wood and canevas, inspired by reality and also landscapes and with a theatre background, I aim to tell stories through images. Nature inspires my landscapes, needing no more fantasy as it already holds such a deep beauty within. Some of the other painting styles that I do are drawn from society, human nature, and fantasy. They tell a story and require an audience. »

Paysages 2016-currently

_____

I am interested in reproducing landscapes that are close to my heart. It is a very meditative exercise that brings me a lot. I feel less need to paint imaginary or fantasy worlds. Perhaps this need for extravagance is satisfied in my highly colourful daily life. Since 2016 I have been very active as a puppeteer and mask maker, I have married my wonderful « mate » who is Australian. So she makes me travel. And our daughter was born. Her name is Rose, in memory of my beloved grandmother.


Perspectives 2010-2016

Paintings made during my few years in Paris. I stayed there for a new training at the Jacques Lecoq International Theatre School.
