  • Pastel’s Ways of Being

  • Pierre Skira once decided to stop oil painting and put down his paint brushes. He has exclusively used dry pastel sticks ever since. He thus changed pictorial techniques and supports, moving from canvas to hardboard. It was a paradigm shift too.
    For a few years now, the artist’s studio has become the setting of a constant quest for a silent dialogue of shapes and colours placed side by side. Unlike his early pastels, which featured the mimesis of figurative paintings of still lifes, books,...
    Pierre Skira once decided to stop oil painting and put down his paint brushes. He has exclusively used dry pastel sticks ever since. He thus changed pictorial techniques and supports, moving from canvas to hardboard. It was a paradigm shift too.
    For a few years now, the artist’s studio has become the setting of a constant quest for a silent dialogue of shapes and colours placed side by side. Unlike his early pastels, which featured the mimesis of figurative paintings of still lifes, books, musical instruments, and vanitases, today abstract compositions are emerging. The agglutinated powders of mixed pigments and kaolin, sometimes enhanced with acrylic, act on the transparencies or the opacities of their captive lights.
    Pierre Skira’s abstract pastels, supplemented by a set of his engravings, have been brought together for the first time in Antibes in the great hall of the Picasso museum, transformed for the occasion into a luminous chapel. The emotion conveyed by his works is a strong, intimate feeling. To those who know how to see them, to those who accept the need to be amazed, they are a comforting sign of the future.
