Gabriel Loire, the painter

The Creation (1986-1987), set of 7 oils on canvas (2.20 x 8.40 m)

The work of Gabriel Loire is immense, his name evokes the stained glass that was the center of his artistic activity. But do you know that with stained glass, he also practiced drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, illustration, fresco ...
The painting remains one of these means of privileged expressions, feeling freer, thus rid of the technical and architectural constraints of the stained glass, it leaves free rein to his talent.
