Oil on Canvas

Colours are of primordial importance in Pivet’s work. The different chromatic tones he has retained from the Fauvist period contribute to the construction of image frames that fragment the canvass surface. Here, light assumes its full dimension and almost becomes the very breath of the work. In painting after painting we find these luminous gaps where light springs forth to caress forms and endow them with an active presence. In his recent works, light emanates directly from the forms rather than the other way around, giving the paintings an interior quality, a density of expression that go far beyond the subject matter that is evoked. Through his painting, Pivet offers us both the right and wrong sides of a reality that has yet to be grasped. Jules Arbec (from Guide Parcours, Canadian art magazine)
