Yoann Lossel, Painter of Spirits

Yoann Lossel art

 

Working in graphite, gold leaf and mixed media assemblage, Yoann Lossel creates fantastic myth based worlds and scenarios. They have a beautiful graceful ambiance, full of spiritual timelessness and ancient rituals. He is a French painter and designer currently living in the Forest of Broceliande in Brittany, a landscape steeped in Celtic and Arthurian myth. Reflecting this environment – Yoann’s works take the viewer through mythic and imaginary lands, imbued with ancient tales and iconic mysteries.

Below is an excerpt from an interview with Yoann, here at gaytonvanryn.blogspot.

Another idea you’ve brought up that resonates with my work is the sense of choice, of paying attention to the choices we make. This is a very important thing for me, both spiritually and politically. 

Society, it seems to me, so often makes the wrong choices! Life presents us with choices all the time — between “this” and “that.” If you choose “this,” there are certain inevitable consequences; and if you choose “that,” there are other consequences. When we look back at history, we see bad choices made and we see the consequences of them — but then we seem to go on making those same choices again, somehow expecting a different result! On the personal level, too, we so often blindly repeat negative patterns in our lives – seemingly unaware that we can actually make the choice to behave differently, and therefore create a different outcome. The consciousness that I want to awaken, through the use of this theme in storytelling, is that at any moment one can choose to do things differently. You don’t have to wait for things around you to change. You can make a choice and make a change yourself.
