Being an artist is not allowed to everyone, it takes gifted hands and gifted mind.
The most complex element is “making” the painting on the spot, via generous colors and shapes to the empty canvas. I force down my tolerance to stay objective on the subject manner, the painting, and idea.
In time the progression of construction is looking and creating a “No subject matter”. Full of colors and I love just created painting and be happy for ever.
Even if digital techniques take away many of handcrafted works, real artists from the “old school” remain. They envision life from the surrounding they have a special way to think, to look and to listen. Sylvain Copon is one of them. Do not confuse artists and painters. Painter paint for his own pleasure without really having a vision of the art. In the old days artists belonged to the most noble elites, collectors and even Kings. Religions and politics have no leverage on artists. They explain their dreams, their vision, and sometimes even astonish by their view of our present time. Their creations are the original reproduction of the living.
The scenes are engraved, painted, and sculpted to allow civilization of all kind an attractive future and past. People no longer take the time to dream… Sylvain Copon conducts his life according to his birth; his innate talent predisposed him to be an artist. Like breathing, art becomes the oxygen of his unique universe. During his all life, creation has been a perpetual evolution. Often envied, copied, the work of Sylvain Copon remains pure artwork. He lives in USA and France with a load of emotions, and transfers them through this noble material with is knife spread the rich past of colors onto the canvas.
His life universe and his works are a reality, palpable! Parts are cold like metal, some hot a sun… But the topics are sizzling like his character. Holding a piece of Sylvain Copon’s collection, is like owning a small piece of his life, but basically a large piece of his talent.
A very common “mistake” that people tend to do is to assimilate the contemporary and modern terms. Briefly here is what differentiates these two currents. We need to distinguish the two terms because the majority of the time, people will say “I like modern art” without knowing exactly what it is. People speak of modern art, one criterion or made reference to the period extending from 1850 to about 1945. In the modern alternating include artists such as Picasso, Degas or Matisse. This current is characterized not only by all the mediums that are used to make art (such as painting, sculpture,) but also by the new topics or ideas. As time progresses, new techniques are discovered and used to create. On the other side, when it comes to contemporary art, we talk primarily about what is done today. Many people try to exact condition the contemporary period. Most people consider this period begins around 1960. Contemporary art is characterized by several styles that are unique to artists of that time. As Sylvain Copon fairly recent artists still producing in the 2000s to the present. So Sylvain Copon’s is a contemporary artist.
