François Fressinier - Meet The Artist

SCHAUMBURG—Martin Lawrence Galleries, Schaumburg is honored to announce an exclusive exhibition of stunning new paintings by François Fressinier. Combining collage, impasto, abstraction and figurative painting, the artist develops a distinctive tactile quality merging traditional and contemporary elements.

Born in Cognac, France in 1968 to scholarly portrait photographer parents with an affinity for aesthetics, it was fitting that modern figurative artist, François Fressinier, would develop a unique, enchanting style.

The artist’s education at the École Brassart in Tours afforded Fressinier the opportunity to study the drawings and paintings of old and new masters. He has stated, “Art is something you cultivate; it is alive! My joy of painting is to listen to the piece and to have a discussion with it. Each one has its own personality”. Fressinier’s process involves letting the painting speak to him and watching it appear progressively and without force. He continues to be moved by the work of other artists, frequently visiting museums, galleries and art libraries to inspire his imagination.

We hope you will join us in Schaumburg on June 1st to meet François Fressinier.
