Ambiguous lyric abstract paintings

Semi-abstract paitings – 2005 – 2007


Is it possible to abstract oneself from all reality? How can one create an abstract canvas while concealing any organisation – an organisation that induces, through its human dimension, a form of reality? Thierry Virton walks this line like a tightrope walker and oscillates between a more or less formal gestural lyrical abstraction and a figurative landscape composition. A perilous balance is nevertheless achieved, which delivers imaginary worlds in which one can easily travel. The future approach to figurative landscape is already in gestation.
