In 1971, Jean-Marie Barre joined the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Aix-en-Provence. First confronting himself with the creation of stage canvases, he then realized murals, some of them large-format. As project manager, he works in particular on the relationship between architecture, narration and place. He also worked for three years as a journalist (Le Film français, Vidéo 7, L'Évènement du jeudi). It was in the 1980s that he found his writing in painting. His work focuses on personal and collective memory as well as social observation. It was not until 2010, after three years of questioning, that he approached a radically different way of painting. Signing JMB BARRE, he found a first metamorphosis with a work of matter, tackled on canvas and sculpture. A new period is implemented from acrylic - and with bare hands - associating black and white, then a triad composed of black, red, white. JMB has been working in abstraction since 2012.
