"The isthmus is a piece of land that separates two seas, which refuses to be swallowed up. It is a cordon and a place of passage by definition, a link between two territories. It is also the place of articulation between two organs in the body. Finally, in geometry, it is what connects two similar figures to each other.

The Isthmus is my dream of territory that I build for each painting, a space of contemplation, a space of relentless struggle to become both a mental and physical space, to work with the mind by deploying the emotional charge of colour. The isthmus represents the constancy of painting and what remains to be conquered as a sign of what is called landscape.

This series is a variation on the pattern as a musician would do on a few notes depending on his inspiration. These are three colours placed on a flat, monochrome surface ranging from blue to grey. Their refined assemblage also seeks to go beyond this simple notion of landscape to reveal another domain, a materiality of feelings." - François Lemaire

François Lemaire is from Nampcelles-la-Cour, in Thiérache, in the North of France. He comes from a family of farmers. He spent his entire childhood in his father’s fields. After studying literature, cinema and plastic arts in Paris, he taught for a while in the Parisian region, in a priority education zone, then co-wrote documentary and fiction films while working as an assistant director and producer. since 1998, he has devoted himself entirely to painting, which he had been practising since his adolescence. With his landscapes, he explores the question of territory and space: nature is a painter, he says, she reacts to light by colour and composes random paintings that pass by every day before our eyes. With my painting, I do like her, I compose blocks of colours that come together or collide to release an emotion more than a representation, for him, painting is inventing reality, he now leads painting workshops for the Works Council of Gustave Roussy (Villejuif), the Cultural AssociationForanim and the town hall of Kremlin-Bicêtre. He has been exhibiting regularly for twenty-five years.
