Thierry’s painting reflects the constant search of expression and movement. The forms sometimes sharp borned under his knives pique curiosity of the viewer who stops and plunges into a three-dimensional world in which he can give free rein to his imagination.
Thierry Vobmann is a professional painter since 2006.
More than one hundred of his creations are in private collections in Europe, Australia, China, Hong Kong, Usa.
Since 2006, I left the real image to achieve total freedom: the abstract.
No more reassuring but reducing frame of the model. Place to the representation of the impalpable!
There is no limit, except those I have set myself, to apply to the abstract painting some classical rules of perspective, shadow and light, as much as possible. It's not allowed in abstract, but, I'm an artist and I do not accept imposed limits in my art. It's against freedom and creativity.
Impressionist painters who are now our favorite, did they not break the academic rules that their time imposed ?
They were banished, they had no place to exhibit but, they have resisted for our greatest happiness.
Fortunately for me, times have changed and today, many people appreciate the novelty and daring. The testimony is my selection in prestigious exhibitions and art books, and the support of some art critics.
I use the acrylic paint which, by its rapid drying, makes it possible to finalize a canvas while preserving the state of mind of the moment.
Like a dancer who leaves the trace of his gestures in the space that surrounds him, the use of the palette knife marks the imprint of all the movements that led to the completion of the work . This gestural testimony gives an incomparable expressiveness compared to the use of the brush alone, the difficulty being to master the gesture, to dose the momentum to its right measure. The canvas then becomes the starting point where the forms, the colors, which radiate and express themselves throughout the room are concentrated like a sound, a ripple in the water. The gesture initiated on the canvas is projected into space far beyond its physical support. This is my quest.
I offer you the starting point from which you can let the artistic enthusiasm burst deep within you. It is up to you to open up your eyes and your heart in order to let your soul elaborate its own vision of the canvas. This is the magic of the abstract, each spectator receives the material he will use to finalize his personal perception of the work. Drop to freedom, it's sublime!
I wish you a good visit and hope to make you dream a little.
