Original Oil Painting by Jean-Luc Almond. Painted from a found vintage photograph. The painting was made using many layers. The surface is highly textured. The history of stages of the process is revealed through the different surfaces of the painting. Impasto mark-making and glazes combine to push and pull the viewer around the painting. The figurative and abstract elements create tension as features are covered - giving the face ambiguity.

Jean-Luc Almond, painter, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. Jean-Luc Almond is an emerging British artist who received his BFA in 2013 from the City Guilds of London Art School. His paintings have won various awards, including the winner of The Cass Art Commission of the National Open Art Competition, Somerset House (2014) and The Best Painting Prize at the ‘Injustice’ Open Art Competition, La Galleria, Pall Mall, 2014, judged by esteemed art critic, Edward Lucie Smith.

Among Jean-Luc’s influences is Victorian photography. His paintings are constructed through the processes of creation and destruction, damage and repair. Jean-Luc is obsessed with the materiality and texture of the paint itself. He embraces the transformations that take place when he is no longer a slave to the image and the painting becomes more about the paint and the surface. A certain tension exists within the thick surfaces of his paintings, as paint takes precedence over representation.
