Biography

Pierre Lefebvre paints portraits, interior scenes and still lifes. In his portraits, there is a subtle reference to the artist himself; these individuals are very distinguished and reserved. His compositions are structured, often geometric and always engaging. In many of his canvases the eye is drawn down into the painting, inviting the viewer in. Pierre Lefebvre’s portraits and still life’s project an atmosphere of mystery and tranquility. When we examine carefully the details in his work, we realize that the artist employs a very skillful symbolism to project human separation. For instance, a jagged outline of draped material leads to a broken goblet spilling red wine over the pages of an open book. The choice of a lemon placed next to the goblet is not by chance. Nor is the spilt wine staining the pages of the book an aimless gesture. Every detail is meticulously thought out. The artist plans his subject before starting to work on the canvas, developing a general outline of what the finished painting will be. Once his ideas have come together, the paint brush flies across the canvas transcribing what Lefebvre has mentally created.
