The lyrical abstractions of the painter Gérard Besset include a set of large format creations that the artist calls "Les lyriques".


Lyrics are abstractions in which the imagination gives free rein to the direct expression of individual emotion. This freedom of the plastic language presents a work mainly on canvas or cardboard.


The material dimension of these paintings often in large format shows a specific work of the trace as an explosion of the many facets of the inner universe. The jerky or loose gesture multiplies and takes various rhythms, the trace is either tender or violent but always in the thickness of the mainly acrylic material.


They express the power of emotions in a quest for hatching.
