Artists, and Fresco Artists as well, may often be influenced by the ancient masters, but they also feel linked sometimes to contemporary, and in a way more iconoclastic artistic approaches.

Meditative Fresco Art has to do with the very specific mood which is generated by the ‘A Fresco’ painting rhythm. An absolutely quiet painting mood, but within the urgency of a very short ‘Fresco’ time ! (as described here and there in this site).

Meditative Fresco Art also means staying aware of what is unexpected. Of what may occur precisely while painting in this state of urgency where the unexpected, sometimes becomes the most important : Serendipity could be the word for it !

An identical respect here then for the great Renaissance Artist Giotto, and his unique way of depicting the sacred, or for many contemporary Painters.
Antoni Tàpies for instance, an Artist, but a Shaman too, who installed kabbalistic signs on the painted surface, like landing lights for the brave one to come back home, after an exploration flight above some very private inner landscape !



 

  •      Les influences des Artistes sont souvent si nombreuses, et complexes ! Toutefois, bien que le fil conducteur reste toujours ici l’admiration pour les grands maîtres de la Fresque, Giotto en tout premier lieu, il se rapporte aussi à des artistes contemporains, à des peintres plus iconoclastes comme Antoni Tàpies, ou Anselm Kiefer par exemple.

    Un respect identique pour tous les créateurs qui ont su donner à voir les mystères qui leur étaient apparus… les signes étranges qui ont balisé leurs chemins !
