Painting

Biography and career

Philippe de Latour




My approach to painting is intuitive and free, it has no plan or special projects. Each painting is a new adventure, a new journey. It’s about living the painting as an experimental practice. I want to wake up the presence deep inside our being.


It’s about being surprised. Only the painting matters, the "good canvas" is the result of a thousand chances ... A question of circumstance, moment, meeting. It also depends on the temperature of the air, the mixture of water and pigments, the shape of brushes and brushes.


One goal: to apprehend the presence of ourselves in this world. The abstraction has this capacity to make glimpse in the moment "inner dances" far from our representation.
