Biography
"I don't like interpretations so much. What I love, above all, are images that stimulate our imagination with their complexity. I had some trouble with the old masters for quite a while. I was very fascinated by them but I didn't know how to integrate them into my work. Now they fit into a composition, like some kind of objects, without getting too much importance, almost like A Trojan Horse."

As the artist’s preferred medium, oil painting is a perfect metaphor for Matthieu Ronsse’s work to the extent that its composition allows for last-minute changes of heart. It symbolizes the work-in-progress vision that characterizes Matthieu Ronsse’s work, with its constant evolutions inspired by context and given highly instinctive creative expression.
