Beautiful landscape paintings by French artist Benoit Trimborn. As a former architect, he sees the space of the countryside as a bridge to the space of the canvas. He evokes its inhabitants from the animals to the crops and vegetation that grows on the fields. Rather than speaking about the painting, he like to make the work speak for itself. Trimborn thinks of himself as a contemporary impressionist as he depicts common elements in the landscape such as fog, rain, reflection, light, and atmosphere that allows him to escape from the retinal point of view to something born of emotion.
The morphology of the landscapes, or more essentially, the space that the countryside paints, draws my attention and is like the spark of an idea. As an architect, I see there a breath, a light, a rhythm that can form on its own a principle of beauty. Thus, in painting, I am guided by these places of the countryside, they go through the seasons, but also through meteorological and agricultural variations. So, I imagine the passage from the space of the countryside to the space of the canvas. It is a passage to do without useless chatter, because everything is there.
