It was that of the Doctor
Barre (1956). French Photorealist, Superrealist. Impermanency at the end of fingersÖ
If it is necessary to make in the mixture of the kinds then we let us declare in complicated sentences without end that Jean Marie Barre is the Marcel Proust of the French photorealism. And while declaring this we will pass to with dimensions from essence because we will see that the step of the artist even if it cannot be not clearly conscience goes well beyond this too fast interpretation. To our knowledge in this country no parallel nor bond of any kind was never carried out between art whateverit is and the recent discoveries of the psychology of the depths which deeply modify the glance of the observer informed with respect to works. Admittedly Jean Marie Barre is a photorealist who seeks to recreate forgotten and lost atmospheres past which suggest a deep melancholy.
The places are very often abandoned in outside and vacuums in interior, they belong to its past or its childhood. Fitting fully in the purposes of his movement, conceived at the beginning by very committed artists socially,the painter opposes any technical progress carried out with the detriment of the person, the culture and with the time which passes for affectivity.But there is another dimension, major still and of broader range in the heart of the work of this artist. As often it is the technical examination of the composition and the systematic use of the contrast clearly obscure which put to us on the track. The shade invading the light is a technical position which is neither free, nor fortuitous, as any technical position it is voluntary and revealing. After having seen tens of works of Jean Marie Barre force was to note that dominant was expressed there with much power.
