Denis Frémond was born in Le Havre, into a family of the upper middle class. He received a Calvinist education and attended the Lycée François-Ier in his hometown.

In 1967, he joined the Boulle School in Paris. Upon graduating, he first gave up painting and attended the René Simon Dramatic Art Course in Paris. He definitively returned to painting in 1976, first of all experimenting with a zany vein, which he took up at the same time in the 1980s as a press cartoonist and author of comics (Pilote, L’Écho des savanes, Le Point, Dargaud … ). His works are collected by Albin Michel in four volumes. He also launched the character of journalist Jo Engo in 1985, which was the subject of two albums, drawn in the clear line style1.

From 1991, he devoted himself exclusively to painting, first in watercolor, especially in his hometown, Le Havre, then in oil, with Johannes Vermeer as his first influence and the catharsis always produced by the source. unique light. This aesthetic purgation binds him together without ever letting go over the years.

Denis Frémond’s paintings are like the novels of Patrick Modiano. They have in common a familiar strangeness, an obsession with lost time, a nostalgia for an eternally recomposed happiness”.

But it is also a certain form of dreaminess that characterizes this work, all of whose elements, very real, nevertheless form an imperceptibly unreal whole, which refers to the literary fragments that the artist places on the journal of his site.

Denis Frémond “keeps a journal on his blog So this Sunday, January 7, 2007 he wrote: “Dream of this night: I am painting but a person standing to my left is reading to me passages from Rainer Maria Rilke, in Letters to a young poet, I interrupt myself to try to find out where this voice comes from, because there is no one, I am alone in this large room, larger than in reality… Outside, it is not about Paris, but a landscape countryside, flat, a few trees, wind turbines in the distance, the light noise of which propagates through the room like that of a clock, creating a tremendous sensation of calm ””.

Sigmund Freud and Maurice Ravel complete the influences on the artist’s work. Thus, this mischievous portrait of the father of psychoanalysis, who had “aversion” to music, entitled Portrait en Gaspard de la nuit, a tribute to the famous piano triptych by Maurice Ravel, inspired by the poem by Aloysius Bertrand.
