Jean-Francois Debongnie, born 1968, a native of Brussels, has been living between Singapore and Belgium since 1989. A self-taught artist, Jean-Francois favours large canvasses on which he explores the themes that inspire him in series such as “Red flowers”, “Summer”, “Dancing in the wind”, “Landscape – China”.
In these series Debongnie brings to life flowers – both as iconographic floral signatures which capture the essential qualities of a flower rather than strict botanical representations, and as part of a landscape in fields growing wild amidst ripening grain. Their overall impression is one of movement: wind-blown fields beneath swirling skies of monestial blue. In these series Debongnie favours a palette of late summer hues: ochres and Naples yellow, raw umber and burnt sienna.
