This abstract work is inspired by the Salome Opera (Strauss’ work, based on a libretto by Oscar Wilde - itself taken from a biblical episode).

In this painting, we find the importance of the Moon (shown here under different phases: full and more or less decreasing). The full moon is also like a flower, symbolizing here the woman whose beauty will cause the loss of the protagonists. We will also find an evocation of the sword by which Salome claimed the head of the Baptist (whose shape is also mentioned at the bottom right of the painting). Blood drops (here yellow as gold and black as death) represent the crime and the cost it will have. Finally, the canvas is animated by golden forms, inspired by the famous Dance of the 7 Voiles, which is so characteristic of the musical work.

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.
