Ludovic Mercher

Born: 1970

Hometown: ROUBAIX

Based in: ST VINCENT SUR GRAON

 

Born in 1970 in France, Ludovic Mercher is a self-taught painter who lives and works by the Atlantic ocean coast.

After having experimented for ten years with several classic techniques (modeling, black pencils, oil painting), Ludovic Mercher achieved from 2004 the sought-after purity and affirms his particular, resolutely modern approach. He therefore begins to be supported by galleries, as well in France as in Europe.

Ludovic Mercher uses a deliberately stripped palette where red and black dominate. Using various materials such as fiber, metal, rust, paper and ink, he evokes the straight line facing the landscape. On the canvas, a whole human geometry marks our living space, flows of information arise in architecture. As our civilization is constantly redefined by technology, the artist seeks to find balance through the force of the imagination, between matter and spirit.

Describe your creative process.

Between architecture and nature, it is the balance that I seek in the canvas : the vital space that we must find between matter and spirit. My painting is at the crossroads of the world of yesterday and tomorrow, the ancestral and the modern. It's about finding a balance through the force of the imagination.
