Greenwich, Connecticut, UNITED STATES

La Jolla, California, Oct. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  

There is beauty, complexity, mystery, joy…there is simply everything.”-Francois Fressinier

Francois Fressinier is an ardent admirer of the female face.  To this French born artist, it uniquely embodies and graciously expresses serenity, beauty and the entire spectrum of human emotion. He has long shared his vision of its varied grace, and his latest works present that face as a reflection of his childhood influences. Fressinier grew up with parents who collected posters of the artist Christine Rosamond. Her work has influenced his view of femininity, and is reflected in the use of a subtle watercolor palette in his most recent oil painting Giving Thanks.  Another of Fressinier’s new paintings, Kate Moss II, combines collage, impasto, and abstraction, and hints at the artist’s admiration for Andy Warhol’s celebrity portraits.

“Every painting is a discovery, and makes me want to explore or experiment further. Every painting is a new beginning, a clean slate so to speak, yet I always strive to convey in it what I discovered from my last painting."-François Fressinier

Fressinier was born in Cognac, France to scholarly portrait photographers who instilled in him an affinity for aesthetics.  His artworks combine collage, impasto, abstraction and figurative painting to create a unique textural style that unites both classic and contemporary elements. He studied fine art at the École Brassart in Tours where he was exposed to the sketches and paintings of Rembrandt, Renoir, Courbet, Rubens and Delaunay. Drawing inspiration from these masters, Fressinier has incorporated their classic sensibilities into his unique contemporary expression of femininity, forging his own creative ground in the process.

For me the act of creating is like a conversation I have with my painting, and I have learned over the years to listen carefully to what it has to tell me."-François Fressinier

The delicate hand of Fressinier is distinctly present in his beautiful and sensitive renderings of the female face, which provides the ongoing narrative for his work. The women of Fressinier’s world are imbued with his singular interpretation, and have attracted the attention of collectors worldwide. 

Martin Lawrence Galleries is the exclusive publisher of Fressinier’s works, and is extremely proud to be hosting the artist and exhibiting his latest works at their La Jolla by the Sea location on Saturday, November 4, 2017, at 6PM
