Franck DUMINIL (1933-2014)
Franck Duminil began his training at the École des Beaux-Arts in Bordeaux, where he studied architecture in the Ferré workshop. He then attended Jean Prouvé's classes at the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers. In parallel to a career as a draftsman in various architectural firms, Franck Duminil draws and paints. He decided to devote himself entirely to painting in the 1970s. Throughout his life, his works will be presented in many exhibitions and shows. They appear in several public and private collections.
Inspired by his view of nature, the work of Franck Duminil is part of the current of lyrical abstraction. The art historian and critic Lydia Harambourg emphasizes that Franck Duminil "transgresses all traditional formal organization and tends towards a visible and invisible reality".
