Works of François Murez inspired by Nature (mountains, rivers, lakes, woods, gardens ...) and translated to different media and materials.

Nature, by its beauty and fragility, inspired Francois Murez. His expressions are multiple:
° Landscape painting transcribes in colored materials the glance that runs through the mountains, follows rivers, reaches lakes, by gardens,
° Sculpture makes life floated, abandoned woods, or becomes wood-reliefs,
° Drawings capture the moment of emotion,
° Colloquiums go deeper into the landscape painting,
° Articles explicit techniques and compositions of old masters.

Arbres musicaux

Dans le silence d'un sous-bois, les arbres profilent leurs silhouettes. Au mouvement de l'œil, au chatoiement de la lumière, les silhouettes s'irisent, s'éveillent, s'animent, mues par un rythme intérieur. Et sur cette partition boisée, les arbres dessinent leurs notes et colorent le sous-bois de leur musique silencieuse. In the silence of a forest, the trees show their silhouettes. On the movement of the eye, of the light, silhouettes awaken, come alive, driven by an inner rhythm. And on this sheet music, trees draw their notes and color underbrush from their silent music.

The course of a painter in the representation of the landscape: Georges Braque

April 6th, 2012

The modern civilization allowed the man a control of the outside world... In doing so, he works to destroy it in the exhausting or in the pollutant. It results (…) a negligence of the internal life reduced to the utilitarian practice of the rational faculties. We must now wait with hope, a return to requirements of the internal reality. The man has to reconquer his control and rediscover the meaning of its development. (René Huyghe)
