For Jean-François Lacalmontie, born in France in 1947, painting is a continuation of drawing since he builds his pictorial works from sketchbook drawings.

His “automatic” drawings, as the artist call them, are a collection of simple shapes traced with Indian ink on paper or burned with a blowtorch that constitute a sort of alphabet of shapes.


These signs are then directly painted on canvas and seem about to surreptitiously move around on the blank surface. Visitors are free to interpret the work according to their own imagination.


Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same name, this catalogue provides the opportunity to discover Jean-François Lacalmontie’s pictorial work and invites readers to explore his unique cryptic and poetic world.
