Drawing made in charcoal, pencil and ink, on paper. Inspired by the Atlas statue, a bronze sculpture made by Lee Lawrie, installed in front of Rockefeller Center in New York. With his arms raised, Atlas supported the celestial vault on his shoulders. Its body is massive and its muscles very cut out are typical of the Art Deco period. Today, it is an emblematic monument of New York City. Jean-François Laurent's geometric style adapts very well to the already stylized subject. The black and white treatment, while gradient, reinforces the impressions of strength, movement and weight of the original work while giving it modernity. The drawing is proposed framed (frame type sober body with the drawing at the bottom to give it depth) (black wood and transparent glass).

Jean-François Laurent - JFL was born in Lille in 1975. He has been mainly been painting in his own with oil on canvas frames since 1997. His work is inspired by lights, colours and transparencies. It is influenced by the works of Lyonel Feininger, Robert Delaunay and Constantin Brancusi.

In his paintings, Jean-François Laurent seeks to transform perspectives and light to show the invisible, the interdependence of things, beings and objects. The lines intersect, cut, deform to give a very structured composition, yet perfectly free and detached from the rules. The subject, ranging from figurative to total abstraction, remains as perceptible to the observer who can project themselves into these familiar forms, while leaving the possibility to see what they wants to see, to feel what they like. Light and shadows are everywhere in the canvas. From every point of view, the interpretation of the work can be different.

His touch is precise, he works with little material and with a reduced range of colours. In this way, he seeks to make the canvas vibrate, to make it feel alive and sensitive to its environment. JFL seeks that each work is to be rediscovered at every moment, that the one who observes it is caught by the composition, by the colours, by the movement and that each time he lets himself be touched as if it were the first time.
