Hébert Franck

  • France
  • Painter
The oil-knife technique allows me to have a direct rendering and not to stray too far from the original idea.
Franck Hébert has adopted painting as his main means of expression since the beginning of the 90s, after playing and teaching guitar for many years. An avid learner, he attended the Fine Arts School of Caen and spent time with many painters in the region, which has offered great diversity to his work. From the beginning of the 2000s, he started to join many exhibitions and art fairs rewarded his work. Today he devotes himself entirely to painting in his atelier in Pleneuf Val André in Brittany and holds exhibitions in many galleries all over France. Franck loves to travel and makes many sketches in the moment, which enable him to transform his memories of Paris, Venice or Morocco into works using ochre and gold. If he does always remain in the figurative, he still does not hesitate to brush up against abstractions in order to destabilize his habits and bring new life into his paintings.
Over the years, his main subject has remained light, which he captures in its shattered form or breaks down into swift movements. He was first inspired by the Impressionists and then developed his own style under the influence of English painters such as Edward Seago. Using oil paint and thanks to his confident gestures with the knife, he is able to cut up the urban landscape into multiple mirroring surfaces onto which light is reflected in its infinity, shattering here and there into sprays of sparks. His multicolour seascapes perfectly capture the chaos of the mad swells and even his still life seem inhabited by inextinguishable energy.
