“Figuration Libre” paintings
“The traces of our short life we try to etch in the stone ; at least on the wall like graffiti”
These last paintings of Thierry Virton are the synthesis of many years of work and researches. After a very long time of experiments in all compartments of plastic art, he give us his vision of our society, which graffiti and narrative drawings are the symbols. He tell us about the passage of time and our obsession – her own – of the traces we want to engrave in the Human story ; like our ancestors did through the cave art. Each drawing, each graffiti is a cry of our short life, a futile attempt to say we are still alive ; we were here.
