Les espérances des cendres 2 (2018) - mixed technique on wooden panel - 120 x 160 cm
The work of Fabrice Rebeyrolle takes creativity by the throat, seizes a demiurgic art at its source, the seemingly endless gestation of an earth unfinished, seared, metamorphic. The picture area shudders, space permanently hanging fire. The blood-brutal colours have withdrawn, reduced to chromatic rumours in palpitating darkness, where the flames gather only the slumber of ashes and the shadows of time always precede illumination. Sumptuous, sombre and tense are Rebeyrolle's artistic breathing spaces. The infinitesimal is his territory. Opacity expands, cracklings of infinity ripple across the surfaces. Microcosm and macrocosm embrace, forming delicate inside-outside landscapes. Fragments of immensity. - Christian Noorbergen, art critic and curator (July 2020)

I am asked to say in a few words
what is creating in today's world?
I would say that it is to propose in a way
an act of poetic resistance.
A painting, an engraving, an artist's book,
which may give off a faint glow in the night.
In my mind, I do not separate the paths of thought
and the paths of feeling. We must try to find this balance,
This report is accurate. - Fabrice Rebeyrolle, workshop notes (2018)
