Alexandre Guillaume keeps very passionate memories
of his childhood in a village in the north of France.

His travels, his background, his migrations constitute the
basis of so many events of his life. These scenes removed
with vivacity are some notes that will serve as basis in the
calm of his studio to compose and build his art.

Alexandre Guillaume creates a linear effect with a
powerful tension between its black and gray background
colors helping him to fossilize his creative act.

His paintings are generally large and medium sizes. The
expansion of his paintings is now clear and increasing
over time. The large format emphasizes speed of
movement and sharpens echoes the canvas on the
existence of the person viewing it.
Taking the speed and impatience that we experience in
everyday life Alexandre uses these feelings and
cultivates it into his work.

He gives a constructed image of his painting, with a shift,
a covering, a control which prevails in its wake some
visual asperity, details or linear black elements, creating
an abstraction with its texture of medium and its
ambiguous forms that are the ones of an intense painter.

The colors are not garish spectrum, its nuances are not
scientific mixtures, richness is not the colorfulness or
multiplicity.

The fewer forms there are in his plane compositions, the
more it will be beautiful, right and direct. Rigor, clarity and
strength does not exclude the sensitivity.
Alexandre doesn't use the variety of palette of
naturalists, he does not use
half-tones, the closer tones, are an extreme
precariousness in time, only the maxima
contrasts interests him.

The gray behave to him as fragments of
neutralizing space.

His painting is more a relationship between the
viewer and the work, sensory fusion between the
work and the receiver.
Far from any verbal definition, the experience of
everyone is very intimate.
The right way to look at his painting is a genuine
marriage of senses. And in marriage as in
painting, not to consume is a cause of nullity.

The viewer knows better than anyone to
translate the deep beats of their inner world.
