Biography

Vincent Lemaitre is a French abstract painter. He is a promising artist with great potential.

Vincent Lemaitre’s paintings are life-like and live for themselves. They are raw and impressive as they get right to the point. Between modernity and tradition, they call out to the spectator who is immersed in an abstract and a blurry universe.

Vincent Lemaitre has been developing his practice for 15 years, his works are original and innovative. They are composed of glued, torn or lacerated paper on canvas.

Through this combination of collage with abstract painting, Lemaitre is able to display unique work, created with repeated patterns and the same background.

“I seek a primitive painting, incantatory, before or after civilization, a face to face with a human stripped of everything, something raw and direct that liberates other worlds and refers to its own essence.

It is a long-term approach. Over the past fifteen years I have been experimenting with the plastic effects of glued paper and then ripped, scraped, washed out, more generally, altered paper.

With the support of painting, I developed this unique technique of painting / collage proper to my approach, in which I experience simple concepts related to sign, rhythm, repetition and color.”
