"Paintings and drawings" from Julien Parsy in the Grand Théâtre

The Grand Théâtre d'Angers will host from march 9th till april 17th the works of an angevin artist, Julien Parsy. Graduated of the Angers Fine-Arts School where he studied with Jean-Pierre Pincemin, Julien Parsy will exhibit works gathered under the simple, even elementary, title "Paintings and drawings".

But that dry and quite unattractive title hides a very different material. The works of this young artist (he was born in 1972, lives and works in Angers) disclose a very classical touch which leads the viewers to think of the world of Impressionists even if the Parsy's universe (especially when he uses violet colors) is of course different of the one of these genius. The paintings and drawings of the artist are more a humble "invitation to seek what make the artistic creation appealing and moving". Oil paintings, pastels (where tones and forms are staggered) and charcoal drawings of landscapes "demand to the viewers they meditate" on the origins of their emotions.

The colourful Parsy's works (which size is sometimes monumental) have been exhibited one time per year since 2000 in different cities like Angers, Nantes, Le Mans or Saint Etienne and abroad.
