Abstract Portrait Artists

Free Secession

Painters

Draughtsmen Artists

French artists

Self-taught, Laurent Anastay-Ponsolle has always maintained an emotional relationship with his artistic practice: the feeling is his favorite exploration territory. From the very beginning, he goes where his instinct guides him. He prefers to photograph his model from different angles in order to choose what interests him in a pose, rather than retranscribing the primary truth. 

An obsession, the hands. Possessive, fragile or powerful, sensual or anonymous, they emerge as spectres to capture the attention and to give the essential emotional charge of the composition.

Through his erratic line, Laurent Anastay-Ponsolle tracks down emotions to expose them. He explores the sensitive, the ephemeral, the fragile. By accumulation or deletion, the eye is lost and the individuals disappear: infinite embraces, perpetual, by self forgetfulness or other forgetfulness, the features and the personalities fade away.

To express this research, an obvious medium, drawing. Then painting. However even through this one, the drawing emerges faces like an indelible mark. Saturation, breathing, its repentances are apparent: it scratches erases, erases and underlines its subject. Forbidding himself the use of an eraser, his technique is in the image of his subject: embodied, raw and spontaneous.
