Olivier de Kerten is a contemporary French artist. In this site you will discover some of his recent artworks. In each of them, you will discover a common language defined by an expressionism abstract art. The artist creates a timeless genre of colours to express the depth of human emotion. He defines himself as an artist of emotional abstraction. He adopts a very particular style which consists in breaking with the classics of abstract painting. He associates colours through a process of gestural painting or gestural abstraction. He embarked on action painting by propelling painting in a spontaneous and non-figurative way, layering colours to arrive at a new constant.
The modern artist is working with space and time, and he is expressing his feelings rather than illustrating.
There are no rules. That is how art is born, how breakthroughs happen. Go against the rules or ignore the rules. That is what invention is about.” – Helen Frankenthaler
I'm not looking for perfection, but my creative work brings me peace of mind. They are the essence of my artwork because I believe in the supremacy of pure feeling in my creative art.
