Henri Meillier

My paintings have a personal connection with my soul. Through art and through music combined, they give an explosion of ideas filled with luminosity and colors.

The act of creating and transforming a flat blank surface and adding coaxing out the voice that can be heard through the marriage of colors and form.

Brushstrokes dancing around the canvas to tell a story. The careful combination of color from my palette. The message, contemplation, surrender, and understanding. Each work has it’s own story to tell the viewer.
