Painting

Biography and career

François-Xavier Alexandre

“My painting lies between lyricism and rationality. It displays both subjective and objective elements and draws inspiration from the frontier between science and poetry. It introduces a confrontation or possibly a consensus, between different visions of the world. 


Every canvas is independent while being a starting element in an installation.


It is obviously possible to consider this artwork as showing the relation between the whole and its parts.


The artistic phenomenon arises as much from the empty spaces between the paintings as from the traditional pictorial surface.


I also wish to create  harmony between the plastic and the very shape of the support and I am  interested in the relation between the artwork and its environment  and among other things in the infinitely large and the infinitely small.”
