Frank le Pair (1965) - artist
Working as a visualiser of illuminated signs I have a graphic background.
In 2004 I started painting. It was longer on my program but it was there
never got, in one way or another.
At the end of 2003, one discovered with me a rare form of cancer, making
my life expectancy very uncertain.
It were the weeks before the birth of our oldest daughter Evi. Painting was
a cherished dream but became suddenly priority because I thus was able
to create something that could bridge the time to my daughter.
Time was a fragile understanding for me, by painting I felt a kind of
freedom that gave me energy.
Now many years later, I realize that my paintings have unconsciously have to
do with my illness period and you can see the patterns as a kind of positive
From the first moment the line patterns have been typical in my work.
It symbolizes a series of encounters, feelings, thoughts and experiences
expressed in line, form and color.
With the "Walking by lines' paintings I would like to give everybody a positive
feeling of confidence and energy.
