Gomes Françoise

"Painting the light, vibration of colors"
Born in the Lot-et-Garonne, Françoise Gomes lives and works in the Yvelines. She took academic drawing classes at the Villeneuve-sur-Lot art workshops and then attended the workshop of Yolande Coomans in Paris. The practice of painting followed naturally when it came to color. First of all in a figurative register, Françoise Gomes expresses a pronounced taste for the contrasts of colors. Then the color takes the step on the form to become the central subject of its painting. In her first abstractions she expresses the energy inherent in the interaction of colors. 
Today Françoise Gomes is particularly interested in the depth of colors and their variations. She paints very minimalist abstract landscapes, sometimes at the limit of figuration.

Françoise Gomes found her artistic language by discovering her favorite tool: the knife. She chose oil paint for the brightness of its colors and for its property to dry slowly, essential in her way of painting. Indeed, she develops a singular technique which consists in working the paint by small successive touches which are superimposed. The repetitive gestures participate in her apprehension of the light, the vibration and the transparency of colors.
Of a contemplative nature, Françoise Gomes is inspired by the emotions that the vision of colors in the world around her brings her. The perception of colors and its resonances are determining elements in the process of creation of her paintings.
