Textes et poèmes de Benoît Vermander

 

The work of art is created in silence. Silence, however, nourished by exchanges and encounters, by the discovery of others. Love or friendship : that is, giving and receiving ; the movement of an exchange which can never be interrupted. Exchange between one being and another. Exchange between one culture and another. LI Jinyuan and Benoît VERMANDER give witness through painting and words to what is, today, the encounter between China and the West. From South‑West France to South‑West China, the trials to, St. Jacques and the Silk Road meet and open the path of shared humanity. Within exchanged looks, mutual respect and fraternal searching, LI Jinyuan and Benoît VERMANDER take us with them as they contemplate a world claiming new beauty with each daybreak.


LI Jinyuan was born in 1945 in Chengdu, in the province of Sichuan. Since his childhood, he dreamed of becoming an artist, but first he worked for many years in an aeronautics factory. His determination and his great talent allowed him gradually established himself as an artist.
