Luca Curc
i talks with Jean-Marie Renault during FUTURE LANDSCAPES, the third appointment of BORDERS ART FAIR 2021, at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

Jean-Marie Renault’s paintings are the fruit of passion and spontaneity. Each painting is mesmerizing and invites you on a colorful and dynamic journey through our memories and feelings. The artist invites us to dream, in a moving universe where color acts as a muse. This user-friendly creativity encourages us to take a look at the smallest colorful detail and in this observation, we leave part of reality to enjoy the sensations and feelings that touch us.

LUCA CURCI – What is art for you?
JEAN MARIE RENAULT
– Art is an essential component of our life, we must think about it daily, it must accompany us throughout our lives. It is both futility, a distraction and also the very essence of our nature. This is what identifies the society as a civilization, which ultimately remains of humanity when time, destruction affects a society.

LC – Which subject are you working on?
JMR
– I’m working on space, time and urbanity.

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
JMR
– I find pleasure in the whole creation process, I have more trouble with the “commercial” part.

LC – What is your creative process like?
JMR
– In terms of form, anything that we encounter on a daily basis can become a graphic, pictorial contribution: a reflection, a light, a natural element like the trace of planes passing in the sky or on a starry night, sounds, vibrations of the city, a scrolling landscape, the music. I try to capture moments of life, after all this is transformed, and metamorphosed to give birth to a new composition. I work in a very free manner. I let my hand follow the rhythms and harmonies to the sound of music that I love. Then the shapes and colors draw spaces and depths. It is a painting based on emotions and feelings.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
JMR
– An artist absorbs all kinds of sensations he then transcribes them with his own sensitivity. Whatever medium he uses he brings a vision particular of an era, a situation, a societal or political opinion.

LC – What is the message linked to the artwork you have shown in this exhibition? How is it connected to the theme of the entire festival? JMR – My work emphasizes the growing abstraction of our universe, the dematerialization of being, in this century the individual is no more than a series of digital sequences. A statistics curve, a multidimensional graph where landscapes and sensations are lost. My work is related to the theme “FUTURE LANDSCAPES”: feeling painting and feeling emotions, graphic transcription, the metamorphosed vision of space and urban world.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the festival? JMR – Yes I really like the different themes addressed by the festival.

JMR
– The ITSLIQUID platform presents quality contemporary works and it is interesting to participate in presentations.

LC – Would you suggest a collaboration with us? What do you think about our services? Did you enjoy cooperating with us?
JMR
– Cooperation is interesting even though it’s hard to know what real impact have the exhibit. I am very happy to participate in the exhibition.
