Luc Tessier

Making Hearts Flutter with Colour

Thumbnail Sketches

” The work of art is born of the intelligence’s refusal to reason the concrete.” Albert Camus

Luc Tessier paints hearts. This universal symbolic representation originated in antiquity in association with the fig leave, leading us straight to Dionysus, Greek god of wine, good food and sensuality.

The symbol gains its full significance over a period of time. It was first depicted in red (colour of blood) during the Middle Ages, imparting a carnal, corporal, physical and tangible dimension. It was then conventionally believed that human sentiments emanated from the heart, hence the symbol of sensuality was easily equated with the organ, an association that still holds to this day.
