Landscapes by André Brasilier

This week, we present two paintings by André Brasilier.

André Brasilier considers himself as a “transfigurative” artist. Claiming Gauguin as his spiritual father, the virtuoso of drawing reveals the invisible. This week, we present two of the painter’s landscapes.

 

Between japonism and expressionism 

André Brasilier has developed a singular and recognizable style among a thousand. His painting, at the crossroads of expressionism and Japanese prints, transcends all subjects. His delicate compositions with simple backgrounds and large areas of color accentuate his drawing. Very close to nature, André Brasilier is inspired by all that the latter gives off to reveal its essential beauty. Thus, the artist transports us into dreamlike landscapes where shapes and colors unite to form a true and poetic composition.

Reveal the invisible

Brasilier’s painting represents reality but the artist cannot be totally considered as a figurative painter. His way of painting talks about the invisible, as if he was trying to reveal to the spectators elements that are difficult to perceive. Landscapes and horses become recurring subjects in his work. André Brasilier is interested in the animal in what it gives off. Its form, its panache and its beauty represent for the painter an allegory of life.
