Frederic Caillard is a unique, emerging voice in European painting, which he is pushing toward a paradoxical state that is neither abstract nor concrete, neither entirely expressive nor mechanical.

Caillard is bringing his own content to forms that are being emptied by passing time, appealing to both our nostalgic yearning for recent history and our search for sustenance in the present and future.
