French painter Patrick Bastardoz feels that the construction of buildings and industrial sites have a common ground with “building” a painting. He uses the theme of building to study painting techniques, the use of shapes and material, layering. On his linnen Patrick construct foundations, a skeleton and the final design as a building project. His technique is very transparent allowing the building proces to be visible.
This way of working steered Patrick to painitng industrial sites and builidings – showing their unexpected beauty.
