Self-taught and polymath artist, Jean-Pierre Pincemin started exploring an impressive range of artistic voices and mediums from the beginning of his career. Working with sculpture as well as ceramics, painting and engraving, he followed in the footsteps of the great masters of classical painting he admired at the Louvre and those of his contemporaries, drawing inspiration from both museums and magazines. For a time associated with the Support-Surface movement that questioned the traditional painting ceremonial to come back to unsophisticated gesture and bring an answer to the raging debate around painting in France, Jean-Pierre Pincemin quickly broke free from all affiliation, refusing to erase the past to establish himself as an absolute painter. Totally committed and obsessed with pictorial experiment, his diverse yet very coherent trajectory perfectly reflects his long-term commitment toward a purely plastic renewal of pictorial composition.
