Christoff DEBUSSCHERE : May 20 - 25, 2007
Drawing : figure and landscape


The paintings of Debusschere are characterized by the quality of their brushstrokes that are at once dense, precise and direct. Inspired and poetic, his paintings leave us facinated. The artist seizes his subject with enthusiasm, determination and a clear perception. He places lights accurately and with great assurance creating a mystery that arouses our emotions and captivates us.

While true that we can enjoy painting without knowing how to draw, mastering drawing facilitates considerably the process of painting. Not only is the knowledge of drawing absolutely necessary when establishing the general composition of a painting but it also gives a more precise expression of gesture, an accurate placement of every brushstroke. In this training we will learn how to "see" the subject which is essential for expressing it accurately. We will discover the immense range of possibilities allowed with limited materials, notably the way of obtaining gradations by exercising a different pressure on the pencil or the charcoal. Short poses of the model will allow you to improve your ability and your visual memory. Delacroix, a great draftsman, said in his diary "It is necessary to be able to make the portrait of a worker falling off of a scaffolding". I also want you to understand that, instead of drawing an eye, a tree or an apple you must learn to think in terms of geometrical shapes, shadow and light. You will see that, putting into practice these principles, the likeness and the character of a person or landscape will be expressed beautifully.

Born in Paris in 1962, he started painting with his mother, the artist Nicole Lacombe. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Orléans and entered into to the School ot Visual Art of Philippe Lejeune at Étampes. He was named Official Painter of the Air Force and Space in 1992, of the Navy in 1996 and of the Army in 1998. He has shown his work in many exhibitions and has received innumerable awards including the Gold and Silver Medals as well as the Taylor Prize award of the Salon des Artistes Français, the Prize of La Jeune Peinture of the Salon d'Automne and the Grand Prix of the Contemporary Art Show of Monaco, the Prize of the Ministry of Defense and the Air France Prize at the Salon des Peintres de l'Air et de l'Espace, in Bourget, 2003. In Paris he exhibits regularly at the Frégnac gallery.
