Thierry Virton - Enter the gallery

The passion of the painting lives in me since the age of 16 years. I always thought of painting, dreamed about painting, eaten painting. Of an independent nature, I began, more or less in self-taught, pictorial researches in the 80s. Besides the teaching of drauwing alive models which I followed in Paris and in Lyon, I essentially came true by an important personal work. I, also, worked in collective studio in Grenoble and in Lyon. I was so able to share my experiment with the other professional plastic painters and to expose in particular in Lyon and in the  Rhône-Alpes region.

 The photography was nevertheless my first profession and the landscape in color was in the center of my activity. I keep the fascination for the light and the contrasts; in spite of the interest of this work, the painting naturally imposed upon me as my unique vector of expression and I made my profession in the 90s. 

Light and color channel, since this time, all my pictorial energy. Lyric abstraction replace The representation in the 2000s. Then, the bend is taken without transition,  the abstraction offering me a total creative freedom finally.
