Fontdeville’s work is for the discerning art lover… His technique is based on essential criteria: the mastery of the gesture, the invisible drawing at first sight is nevertheless there, an essential base which will disappear under the spatula, coated, mixed with work and paint.
As in literature, finding the right words to say the essential, it is the same in Fontdeville’s painting, the ease of “writing” by eliminating unnecessary details … great art, go spontaneously to the desired goal, in a flight of notes, judicious flat areas treated with flexibility.
Monique Dijaux-Emieux (Director of Le Chevalet d’Eon Gallery)

Fontdeville dares colors! All the colors, without limit. He brings them to life so that they speak to each other and to us. From unfathomable blues to the most ardent oranges, Fontdeville works in the paste and the freshness, generously, in large flat areas in the momentum, the dynamics of the gesture and the knife. Attentive to the purity of the line, he reaches the most subtle confines of balance.
