Christian SAINT MARC Painter
Self-taught painter born in 1963 in Langon (33) France, lives and works in the French Basque country.
I've been painting for the last twenty years or so, the journeys notably in Africa forged my vocation. Since, I haven't ceased to express myself by using colours on convas, haw I feel about our living conditions as a humain being.
My creative process is generally un unawaited discovery where I start from "zero", without any preconceived ideas, I simply start a basecoat by mixing colours, determined by my moods of the moment.
Then intervenes the time of reflexion and meditation, from these first coats of paint I imagine a subject which emerges, which I them expoit, even if sometimes it changes direction, the painting changes to whatever or wherever it leads me ?
The colours dictate from certain paintings, my work is expressionist, for others it means free representation, to see the singular art. For me it has no importance, I cultivate my own style and to get there, I draw from many influences and different artistic movements.
I exhibit in various exhiitions and certain paintings can be seen inprivate collections.
Please leave me your comments and your appreciations.
