A fervent observer of nature, Philippe Perennou begins his paintings by working on the motif and gradually extracts himself from it. A multitude of themes then unfold such as urban landscapes, urban and port impressions, seascapes, Venice ...
Behind the use of various techniques, his touch is gradually revealed and is particularly expressive, even tending towards abstraction.
For an outdoor painting
Born in Quiberon in 1958, Philippe Perennou is a great observer of nature. He was particularly attracted to painting and in particular to the watercolor painted on the motif.
Enriched by the teaching that this technique brought him, in 1986, he decided to devote himself entirely to what had become for him a passion and to join the Artist-Authors regime.
An energetic touch bordering on abstraction
Philippe Perennou uses mediums such as oil, acrylic, watercolor or pastel, for their own characteristics and specificities. Combined with different techniques, the themes of these canvases allow infinite possibilities of creation, thus avoiding the ease present in all repetitions.
"My style is figurative, with however a constant desire for abstraction, by juxtaposing the precision of a line with the blurring of a touch. Thus dematerialized in places, the subject, although always present, gives way to the interpretation. My paintings are testimonies of impressions and feelings, capturing in our daily life the furtive moments that inexorably link us to our environment. "
