Jean-Baptiste Boyer is a young french painter. He lives and works in Paris. «When I paint,» he says, «I feel like a director. I animate the painting. I manipulate the characters without one ever being able to know who they are, where they are. I thus preserve the mystery. As for the landscapes, they serve as a backdrop, they create the fantasy. In fact everything must remain vague. The truth is there ». « Jean-Baptiste Boyer then traces in his paintings a labyrinth of desires, invisible, mysterious. Beauty leads to hell, passion to abandon. These figures are not the shadow of a daily reality. No ! But the reality of a dream that has its source in the emotion provoked by a face, a body. An attitude. «There is in me,» he says, «a deep relation to the flesh. It’s up to the person looking at the painting to tell the story. Only the excess of feelings guides me. My painting is a confession and the soul of my characters hides itself in my landscapes. «The painting of JeanBaptiste Boyer is like a dream that clings to the eye to better divert it to love. » Jean-Louis Pinte, 2018
Laure Roynette opened her gallery in 2011 in the Marais district. She represents the young artistic guard and supports the work outside the walls of its artists. A stone’s throw from the Picasso Museum, the gallery currently represents some fifteen performers, painters, videographers, photographers, «with more women than men» as some observers have noticed... Laure Roynette likes to surprise his collectors and, endorsing Robert Storr’s expression «Aura Machines», likes «works that stimulate, help to reflect on the vision of the world and perhaps even sometimes to change it».
