Blond paintings Artist Bio:
Paintings is a process that allows us to more profoundly see and to know, in a way that our intellect could not, the physical world and ourselves within it. My work - oil on canvas – is mostly about silence and space. I am interested in the everyday objects or landscapes that surround us - a beauty that we take for granted as we are often too close to see it. What I paint is selected for their shapes, textures and colours, rather than for the symbolic meaning they may have. The subject matter is always secondary to the search for the compositional balance of tone and colour. When painting I try to convey the visual pleasure I experienced in looking at them. In term of technique, I often prime my canvases with a brownish pigment. I start by brushing in the darkest tones, then the mid-tones, and finally the highlights. When I reach the correct tonal balance, I start adding colour while trying to keep the overall harmony. I complete the work by adding thin and transparent layers of diluted colours mixed with oil to create the reflections and highlights that tune and unify the composition. “ In 2014, paintings of Blondiau were among the 20 short listed of the Open exhibition organised by the Dulwich Picture Gallery (London).
