François Avons still life paintings are a stunning exploration of the beauty of simplicity. Through his craftsmanship, he transports us to a realm of nostalgia, invoking a sense of comfort in the mundane. Each piece is constructed from the repurposed wood of a recycled door, imbuing the work with a timeless quality.
The painter's philosophy is to celebrate banality, to remind us of the ephemeral nature of our daily lives. He seeks to demonstrate that there is beauty in even the most quotidian of scenes. He uses the weathered wooden support to illustrate the passing of time, creating a warm sensation of reminiscence.
