I like the idea of staging landscapes that seem commonplace to us but which, when we take the time to observe them, reveal themselves to us in a deeper way.
We often tend to associate beauty with rarity and ephemerality. On the contrary, Adrien Faveau constructs his aesthetic and pictorial world from what surrounds us, our daily environment, the objects with which we live, the landscapes that pass before our eyes every day, the urban furniture that we touch and on which we sit, the queues of cars at a stand still in a traffic jam, the buildings that are chained together, the hurried passers-by, the traffic lights, the information signs, the street lighting, everything that becomes tame to us in the end and that we no longer take the time to see. All of these forms symbolise the movement and the displacement of light for Adrien. Associated with a sunset, a shower or grey weather, these elements that side by side constitute the pictorial composition, are changed in their tones, their brightness and their reflection.
The large metropolises of San Francisco, New York and the forms that compose it, which are fundamental observation objects for Adrien, become the sources of inspiration for an abundant painting, which uses material itself as a marker of time. Scratching, scraping and sometimes applying certain solvents to the oil painting to give it the appearance of natural wear, the artist thus produces with his actions rain that falls and washes out and sun that blinds. The wood support allows him to have a smooth surface suitable for a multitude of effects and change the piece in order to give the urban landscape a new face, one of time and nostalgia.
