In his watercolours, François F. adapts our real world with his imagination. The reality of his subjects becomes something quite different, thanks to his colours, light, composition, inventions. He transforms the Mother Nature we know with his soul and his naivety. His paintbrushes reflect his hopes, his desire for the Absolute. Like a pianist, he is merely interpreting the work of another with his technique and his sensitivity. “Copying from what is real may be a good thing, but inventing what is real is better, much better”. This phrase of Verdi’s applies perfectly to his work.
