Françoise Duprat
"Tell me, the Moon !", Sitting Child in Golden, Blank & White Acrylic Painting




This minimalist artwork created by artist Françoise Duprat, depicts a child dressed in golden-yellow who intends to dialogue with the moon in the night. The sitting child painted in a figurative & symbolist style, is placed in night-landscape environment painted in a minimalist-abstract style. In her early artist carrier Françoise painted mostly figurative-symbolist artworks , and in her recent period she paints mostly lyrical-abstract artworks. It happens that the versatile artist marries these two styles in certain artworks of hers, and this piece is a fruit exactly from such a marriage. Concerning the artistic approach of this abstract artwork, the artist has her own words : "Certain places speak to me and invade my thoughts… Their reality imposes itself on me in what it is imperishable and also moving. I try to keep only a tiny part of it. Few colors enter the scene. The values ​​are placed in a very structured way, then the colors are superimposed and play with their transparencies, the roughness of the material is created as you go. What then remains of these places ? What remains is what once existed and still exists. The timeless, with force, becomes for me a source of inspiration and suggests an imagination specific to each one of us." Françoise Duprat is a French artist. She learned art at the Atelier Met de Penninghen and Jacques d'Andon (now known as ESAG Penninghen), installed in the mythical Académie Julian, and she is a graduate of the prestigious Académie de la Grande Chaumière (where studied also Joan Miró, Alexander Calder, Louise Bourgeois, Jérôme Savary, Zao Wou-Ki, Amedeo Modigliani, Tamara de Lempicka, Alberto Giacometti, Balthus and many other great names of contemporary painting).
