Boussignac is a french painter, post modern (alter realist) artist, born in 1956. This artist is going his own way, refusing to follow the mainstream or fashion in art.
Never „in „, he is never „out“ .
He just wants to keep on the great tradition of french painting, just adding a modern tendance, an actual state of mind .
Once, a friend of him said „Boussignac, you are a painter for bordello !!“.
Not going that far, Boussignac wants mostly to be understood by the majority of the public. Knowing that a man from Bali or from South America could be touched by his work, is more important from him than to touch a parisian art critic!! Though his intention is to be deep and matter of emotions or reflexions ,he wants to be clear and simple ..
Boussignac considers each of his paintings like a novel, a poem or a shortcut, independants one from another. Each painting is a little story, a little world in itself and first of all elements of stories, given to the spectator to create his own version of the painting.
Boussignac doesn’t want to impose but to propose pieces of imagination to the ones who watch …
That gives an impression of chaotic work, with no coherance but the coherance is the work in itself like a film director has a coherence in his work, even his work is made of totally different subjects of films.
His work is based on Art history, the memory, religions and mythologies, the worl of chilhood, humor, erotism, game of words etc..
The fields of investigation for Boussignac are endless, that why his work will never be repetitive and will be surprising until the end 1976-1980 Exhibits in the principal salons – Salon d’Automne, Paris; Salon Comparaison, Paris; Salon des Indépendants; Salon of Osaka, Japan; Salon of Monaco.
