    Bruno Lebon has a keen interest in ancient painting techniques. He paints in
    tempera: a mixture of oil, egg and pigments that he makes himself.

    It imposes on him a slowness of execution, a requirement that runs counter to the rhythms
    of life. The studio plays an essential role in his approach: a place for reflection and
    concentration, where paintings are developed over time.

    Her work with color aims for harmony: bold tones rub shoulders with the most subtle shades
    the most subtle hues, patiently chosen and matched.

    Yet the artist lives in the early 21st century, in his own time
    digital images, he knows all about creative software and its power to fascinate. Bruno Lebon
    is aware of evolving in a society saturated with images and information. His painting is
    a metaphor for the crazy world he seeks to capture.
    His complex compositions feature unexpected motifs with no real hierarchy
    hierarchy.

    To achieve this, he paints essentially from memory, with figures and fragments of objects arising spontaneously and without apparent logic
    spontaneously and without apparent logic.
    According to the artist, the painting should force us to reflect, to contemplate, to leave behind the superficial reading of images
    superficial reading of images.

    Her world is full of motifs drawn from comics, cartoons, trivial figures and a certain
    and a certain vintage popular culture: among other things, we find socks, headphones
    socks, headphones, characters and other heads? snippets of stories appear and the viewer is
    and the viewer is put to the test, summoned to invest himself in this confrontation!

    The artist's references come from free figuration, French painting of the last century
    century, and finally from an American influence.
    These include Georges Braque, Giorgio de Chirico, painters such as Robert Combas
    Combas, the Americans Peter Saul, and above all Philip Guston, the benchmark in his opinion.
    A quotation from Guston sheds light on what lies at the heart of Bruno Lebon?s approach:
    "Often, just when you're ready to give up, you play your last cards.
    You add a few touches, access a new type of consciousness and work from there
