Emile Bellet

In a career of over 20 years, the fruit of a slow maturation and rich pictorial personality, Emile BelletŐs artistic expression has gradually glided into his elegant manner of poetically stylized classical representation.

An absentminded glimpse would make us believe in an abstraction, but the theme is there, visible. Slender silhouettes, bouquets of light, refined landscapes, enchanted fruits; the pure fresh colors, clearly well-defined however, using transparency and fluidity, curiously show through the surface more than they accentuate; just as his palette knife caresses the canvas which radiates and suggests more than it shows.

Contemplative and serene, his gaze strips material elements of their envelope in order to reveal the uncertain and veiled secrets of their soul.
