About the Work

François Fressinier’s signature style superimposes his female subjects, allowing them to become one with the background. “You Are Making Me Dance” is an oil and mixed media on canvas. The image size is 35.25 x 35.25 - inches.

“You Are Making Me Dance” features a portrait of an alluring woman with black hair and makeup. Her eyeshadow is a luminescent blue, while her lipstick is a bold red. Her face is half-covered in splatters of yellow paint, and to the opposite of that are splashes of red color. Superimposed within the yellow splatters are lovely pink flowers, which add to the elegance of this image. The deep, black background gives the effect that this woman is a figure of a dream.

Fressinier credits music as one of his biggest influences in art. He prefers to listen to music while working in his studio. Fressinier has even created many masterpieces of his favorite musical icons, including Elvis, Rihanna and more. His work is mostly comprised of portraits of women as their features enamor him. These works include celebrities like Kate Moss and Grace Jones who are often associated as figures of beauty and feminine pride.

As a young man, Fressinier discovered the world of art and paintings, and he wanted to be a part of it. He was, as a child, surrounded by art in France because of his parents’ love of drawing, painting, and admiration for many artists. As he is primarily a figurative artist who incorporates abstract and graphic elements in his work, Fressinier feels his work aims to say that beauty is all around us, but especially within us. We are surrounded by beauty at every moment, and everywhere, it is right there as a gift, and you can receive it or reject it.

About the Artist

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. His father’s admiration for the works of the Old Masters and his exposure to some of the world’s most historic places, along with France’s Gallo-Roman ruins and Gothic churches inclined François to explore and create figurative, symbolic artwork. In addition, his education at the Ecole Brassart in Tours afforded him the opportunity to study the drawings and paintings of old and new masters. He cites inspiration from artists like Rembrandt for showing us the soul of his sitters, Van Dyke for his elegance, Bonnard’s palette, Fuchs for the fantastic world he invented; all of which influence his style today.
