Realistic Figuration painting – 2011 – 2022

These rare realistic artworks – some of which were started in 2011 – show a certain attachment to symbolic figuration. Thierry Virton shows here his environmental and humanist concerns by denouncing the tragedy of war, the threat of oil and shale gas exploitation and the pollution due in large part to the waste of our consumerist societies. This apocalyptic vision is unambiguous about the future we are preparing for ourselves if things continue.
