Born in Bordeaux (France) in 1954 it’s obvious that Jean-Charles Millepied has a unique position in the much frequented world that we call abstract expressionism. His approach is one that renounces the three-dimensional form to elaborate a very personal universe where painting is deliberately subordinated to the spontaneous expression of the subconscious, and yet it is still tempered by reason.
His particularly refined palette reveals shades that seem to come together in what looks like effortless harmony. He participates in numerous artist residencies around the world. His work has been widely exhibited internationally and is part of private collections in five continents.
« The way I conceive art, especially painting, confronts me with a feeling of vulnerability, even weakness. I claim my incertitude in front of the canvas. For me, as for many other artists, it is the action of painting that creates the intention, and not the opposite.The destruction-reconstruction process will lead, not to a preconceived outcome, but rather to a desired emotion revealed at last. My work of art finished, I can’t help but think it is the result of fate »
