Jérémie Delhome's painting comes across to the eye like the place where form is isolated, like the place of colour vibration, and like the space of interaction between just these two elements which form each one of his pictures.
A form, an element extricated from the landscape, from an object, or from an architecture..., with no scale other than that of its representation and of the picture itself, often crumpled, folded, describes a volume by combining with the passages of colours and textures. The plain backgrounds, for the most part subtle variations of grey, isolate and go hand in hand with these floating objects. Jérémie Delhome's works seem to lay claim to an economy of the general composition to force themselves to exhaust the form, and to try and go to the very essence of representation.
This is an "elementary" art in which colour constructs volume. The artist has chosen to direct his study towards details rather than towards something overall, so he wagers on something minimal in order to arouse the eye. Jérémie Delhome offers a silent and poetic painting with tremendous precision.
