Biography of Pierre Mori

I was born in 1942 in Paris, of a Swiss father and French mother. After graduating at a commercial high school, I carried out in parallel, a double career of artist and  advertising manager. I spent my adolescence in a village located near Auvers-sur-Oise (valley of the impressionists) with  the landscapes of Van Gogh, Pissaro, Derain etc…. Very early on, I began to paint and work in the environment of  important  contemporary draughtsmen (Villemot, Savignac etc.) Attracted by abstract art, my first years as an artist were devoted to working nonfigurative canvases, calligraphic, and I was particularly influenced by Hartung and Mathieu… but it is already a long time ago… In the  1980‘s, after an in-depth study of contemporary  art, I decided to turn  to the figurative expression under the double influence of the French “fauves” (Matisse, Derain, Marquet etc.) and of the German Expressionists « Kolorists » (Macke, Kirchner, Schmidt-Rotluff, Nolde…). Grounded between optimism and gravity, I simplify to the maximum and try to go to the essence. I abolish the perspectives, destructure, reverse the proportions, upset the lines, play up  colors; in short, I create a chimerical, fanciful vision of a world recomposed, accessible to those who can imagine, to dream, to question themselves. After years of working on landscapes and still lives, I devoted myself to the execution of “scenographies” summarizing the characters, the behaviors, and the situations. An increasing number of admirers and collectors accompany me in my work and research.
