Pierre Wemaëre

France Born in: 1913
Born in 1913 in Flanders and died in Versailles in January 2010, Pierre Wemaëre began to paint in 1933 in a figurative genre. From 1936, he was imbued with simplification and the geometrization of forms under the influence of Fernand Léger, of whom he became a student. In 1937, for the “boss”, he produced with Asger Jorn and Grekoff, “Le Transport des Forces”, commissioned for the International Exhibition in Paris. Seduced by Kandinsky's lyricism, he tackles the plastic transposition of concrete images and affirms his progress towards abstraction in 1938-39. It is with Jorn, known at Léger, that he will give his first private exhibition in Copenhagen in January 1938. Their fruitful friendship will last until Jorn's death in 1973. Lonely worker, Pierre Wemaëre is revealed as a painter of great personality, school and French temperament, without denying the themes of Nordic or ethnic inspiration discovered in Denmark. He conquers a way of his own and develops an exclusive palette. Its spurts, its impasto, its flashes have something of abstract expressionism. In his work, the bold structures, the fluid ranges, the transparencies, the sought-after whites, the subtleties of relationships and colors manifest a temperament that is both fiery and restrained, lyrical and sensitive. Galerie Guillaume regularly exhibits the work of Pierre Wemaëre: at Art Paris in 2005, then at the gallery in 2007 “Works on paper”, in 2008 “Confidences” and in 2016 “In the shadow of my dreams”.
