D’après nature

D’après nature presents a selection of paintings, drawings and prints by Jean-Marie Biwer (b. 1957, Dudelange). Spanning fifteen years of production, these recent works reflect his exploration of landscape, nature and the everyday environment.

Over the past four decades, Biwer has developed a body of figurative work that reflects a sensitivity to the world around him: both in terms of his immediate environment – the Ardennes countryside in the north of Luxembourg – and in relation to society in general. His works address subjects that are well established in the traditions of painting including landscape, the body and still life. Yet they also question the role of painting within a world that is dense with images and information. Faced with the proliferation of screens and moving images and the acceleration of the pace of life, Biwer seeks to make paintings that hold the intensity of the present moment, creating a space for contemplation.
