Martin Lawrence Galleries La Jolla by the Sea Gallery Invites Art Lovers to Meet Francois Fressinier Admire and Acquire his New Collection of Breathtaking Works. Nation’s Premier Network of Fine Art Galleries Exclusively Offers the Latest Works “There is beauty, complexity, mystery, joy…there is simply everything.”- François Fressinier Francois Fressinier is an ardent admirer of the female face. To this French-born artist, it uniquely embodies and graciously expresses serenity, beauty and the entire spectrum of human emotion. He has long shared his vision of its varied grace, and his latest works on display at Martin Lawrence Galleries La Jolla by the Sea location, starting June 8th - Fressinier grew up in with parents who collected posters of the artist Christine Rosamond. Her work influenced his view of femininity, subtlety, and use of the watercolor palette as in the artist's "Giving Thanks." Another of Fressinier’s new paintings, “Kate Moss II," combines collage, impasto, and abstraction, and reflects the artist’s admiration of the celebrity portraits Andy Warhol did decades ago. “Every painting is a discovery and makes me want to explore or experiment further. Every painting is a new beginning, a clean slate so to speak, yet I always strive to convey in it what I discovered from my last painting.”-François Fressinier Fressinier-born in Cognac, France to scholarly portrait photographers imbued with an affinity for aesthetics-combines collage, impasto, abstraction, and figurative painting to create a unique textural style uniting both classic and contemporary elements. He studied fine art at the Ecole Brassartin Tours where he was exposed to the images, sketches, and paintings of Rembrandt, Renoir, Courbet, Rubens, and Delaunay. He drew inspiration from these masters, and- from the very beginning of his career-incorporated those sensibilities into a unique expression of his creativity “For me, the act of creating is like a conversation I have with my painting, and I have learned over the years to listen carefully to what it has to tell me.”-François Fressinier The delicate hand of Fressinier is distinctly present in his beautiful, sensitive renderings of the female face, which is the frequent narrative of his work. The women of Fressinier’s world are imbued with his unique interpretation and have attracted the attention of collectors worldwide. Martin Lawrence Galleries is the exclusive publisher of Fressinier’s works and is incredibly proud to be hosting the artist and exhibiting his latest works at their La Jolla by the Sea location on Saturday, June 8th from 6-8PM Martin Lawrence Galleries 1111 Prospect Street La Jolla by the Sea (858) 551-1122 www.martinlawrence.com [email protected]
