Yannick Fournié - PAINTING
Born in 1972.
Ambiguity is surely the word that best characterizes both Yannick and his painting. Between power and sensitivity, anima and animus, social identity and deep self.
After a life path as atypical as it is rich and strong (including a career as a parachutist in the French army), far from the field and artistic sensitivity, it is only in 2010, at 38 years old, that Yannick grabbed a canvas and brushes. Like a culmination, a personal maturation leading him to an imperious desire to use this artistic and sensitive medium to express the intensity that bubbles in him and... his quest for meaning.
His subject? Identity and all its duality between what we are internally and the codes of our society with which we clothe ourselves externally. Yannick plays with this ambiguity, sharpens it to sublimate it and, in the end, to touch us. Each of Yannick's paintings, without exception, whatever the theme of the series he develops, contrasts the human characteristics of contemporary identity. Through what the painted subject is or through what we perceive of it and/or what the work awakens in us, his works shake us up.
