The line is at the heart of Romain Froquet's artistic work. She is a real obsession for him. He works it, twists it, manipulates it in a repetitive, almost automatic gesture. "I'm obsessed with the line. Whether it's an electric wire visible in the street, a road or the roots of a tree: everything inspires me when I link it to Man and the planet. Humans are connected to each other, by links that are not palpable, but they are deeply so.” However, in Froquet's work, the line is full of curves, sometimes roundness. It is never straight or raw. She invites the viewer to his own interpretation. In his search for the perfect line, the artist tries to find a certain harmony, a balance. With this pictorial style, he eliminates the superfluous and concentrates on the essential, perfection in minimalism.
Each line that composes his work makes sense and has its own intrinsic beauty. Romain Froquet's line has no beginning or end, it is unique and continuous. It is free and not predefined. With the repetitiveness of the gesture, the movement, the play on the width of the lines and the size of the curves, this creates a fluidity which seems to give life to the work. We see the movement of the artist in his work. It fits in with it. The work retains traces of its expressiveness, gesture and dynamism. We also note a balance in the void surrounding its lines, its artistic process draws its meaning from it. Thus, Romain Froquet's line is a management of space, a metaphor for life. She undeniably catches the eye.
