François Réau is a 35 year old French artist born in Niort who now lives and works in Paris. His work is all about humanity as it was when it was just born, when it had just come out of a chaotic and primordial universe; and it lets the spectators’ look infiltrate what are almost geological layers of the paint. Frontiers, borders, demarcations, nothing is ever completely clear-cut, for a minimal desire for figuration always remains with the artist.
