About Jean-Baptiste Lyonnet
“Painters, surprising travelers” – Charles Baudelaire.
On the one hand nature, raw, in its original state, and on the other, a growing civilization with its increasingly disproportionate and omnipresent architecture.
This duality has nourished my inspiration and my work, making me question the relationship we have with space and the way we understand it.
The emotion felt when we face raw strength of natural elements, in coexistence with the vibrant complexity of cities reminds us of the fragile balance of our cohabitation.
I seek to restore in my canvases these sensations and emotions, trying to capture the fleeting light, to follow the flight of clouds, to enter the metropolis.
Without a sketch or a preconceived plan, I look for the right moment, the vision that will assert itself with certainty onto the canvas.
I paint the sky, the ocean, the rocks and its dust, the buildings and their reflections, coming from the nebulous world of memory and dreams, remaining faithful to the delicate passage from the inside to the outside that guides the gesture and this my inner reality.
