Hérété Franck

  • France
  • Painter
I often paint outdoors, if possible on the banks of the Saône, they offer me the largest and most beautiful of workshops.
Frank Hérété received training at the prestigious school of illustration, Emile Cohl, and worked for eighteen years as artistic director for a communications firm. In 2013, he decided to devote himself entirely to painting and his extensive experience with oil paintings pointed him towards figuration. He then discovered watercolours and became one of the most prolific painters in the region of Lyon. His work as a portraiture has won him many awards. He mainly paints outside, often on the banks of the Saône. In his on-going search for new subjects, he fills many research notebooks, notes many details in the moment, and tirelessly sublimates his city in works that are overflowing with life.
Franck is a rigorous painter and strives to represent the world by looking for the right lines and right colours, seeking inspiration from artists from the 19th century such as John Singer Sargent. In the most humble way, he is simply looking to capture those fleeting moments in which the beauty of the world reveals itself, without placing any symbolic or personal weight on his paintings. For him, the magic of watercolours is in the creation of scenes that seize the viewer, giving him or her a moment of serenity in which time is suspended. Today, Franck leans towards techniques that mix water colour and oil paint, and his work has become more and more free over the years in order to one day arrive in the "land of abstraction".
