Focusing primarily on nature, and in particular on trees, Dainche's work exudes a feeling of serenity, calm and zen. The compositions are simple, the lines confident, the colours gentle and the pieces as a whole boast a very delicate beauty.

An homage to the artist’s grandfather

Dainche discovered drawing through his work as a landscape architect, where part of his job involved drawing gardens. Gradually, his sensitivity to the stories told by the forms of living things led him to take a more personal, intuitive and artistic approach to drawing.

Loyal to the nature which had nurtured him since he was a child, Dainche chose to work under the name of his great grandfather, who had died after being hit by lightning, under a tree...

Dainche’s works are linked by their homage to the "striking" truth of trees, frequently filled with trees that seem charged with humanity, sometimes rooted, sometimes weak, fragile or robust, sometimes naked, sometimes in bloom.... He is fascinated by their silence, grace, patience, strength and elegance.

Trees: an unending source of inspiration

With Dainche, nothing is premeditated, everything is intuitive. First, there is the background, painted in watercolours, in a single session. The brush is free. The colours - blues, greys and purples – swim together, diluting one another, creating the setting and its atmosphere - snowy, heavy, crepuscular, tranquil...

The trees are then etched onto the paper, directly in Indian ink using a Rotring. There is no rough draft, no finishing touches. For Dainche, it is not so much the result that matters, nor the response, but the intention of allowing one emotion to lead to another.

For this young artist, art in its purest form is a way to reveal the essence of a form, its authenticity. On the paper, there is enough ink to start a realist movement. The audience is left to imagine their own story…
