Matter as well as colour is a movement of particles. Alain Fromeaux first worked for about twenty years, to paint, to master his medium so that it would no longer be an obstacle to his spiritual evolution. Of course, he was not in conscience, he had to experiment in order to raise doubts!
In a second phase, which lasted for a good ten years, Alain Fromeaux became deeply interested in quantum physics, which is nowadays the only tangible way to understand the material world around us. It was by going into the infinitely small that he joined the infinitely large.
Far from being a dead end, it was the sine qua non condition for his awakening that allowed him not to be caught up in all forms of constructivism. The artist is now aware that he is only a receiver-transmitter. The paintings of today, which he invites you to discover, are the quintessence of this journey, which never ceases to give meaning to life.
1980: After having followed, during several years, courses in painting and art history in various academies in Paris and some courses at the Ecole Boulle, he met Bengt Lindstrom in Montparnasse.
1982: Departure from Paris, for the south of France, with the project to set up as an interior designer. At the same time he works on painting at the "Atelier des quatre" with Anton, Vanderspelden and Roustit. Under Anton’s influence, he decided to devote himself entirely to painting.
