LIFE IN MOVEMENT

Nothing in reality is straight. Through his moving works, recognizable by their significant curves, Amaury Dubois brings the instinct of life into his paintings. To the conformism that sometimes threatens us, the artist prefers the audacity of a pictorial style of his own, which has become his signature. For each of his paintings, the artist proposes a pictorial adventure traced with method and weight. The movement is undulating, the lines are curves, our spirit is fluid. We are all intertwined in the tentacular entity that is the real world. Marriage of shades, depth of gradations, Amaury Dubois takes us on a path of colors and lights always in motion finely laid on the canvas.

Achievements that must be read until the last punctuation of color and light. Air, water, light, the artist reveals all these energies that cross us and in which we evolve permanently. Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is mixed. We are not frozen but in constant mutation.

The artist's paintings reveal this symbiosis where man and the world are one.
