Alain Rivière works as painter also on portrait. He developps his research through different kinds of series. He uses mostly black acryl on watercolour paper, but also chalk on paper or oil on canvas. His purpose in each painting is to experience what a human face can be.

The reduction of mouvement, colour and composition represents for him the possibility to suggest fragments of interior lives. In this context outside and inside are in mutual pictorial progress.

On this page you will find some out of the series "Visages", which were paint between 2007 - 2010.
