Jean-François OUDRY


J-F Oudry's landscapes are from nowhere. They fascinate us as if they were mirages. What one sees suddenly slips away. Forests, cliffs, rocks fade away and we remain in front of a pictorial texture. "... Traces and forms become as elements, composite fragments, sedimentation, texture. So there is a landscaped material " writes Jean-François Oudry. Thus, the landscape invents and structures itself to suit the intuition of the artist who, digging his imagination's folds and strata, invites us to an archaeological gaze.

 His works are in permanency at the gallery.
