Visions was born out of interviews Alexandre Leupin had with Francis X. Pavy, a significant painter of Southern culture with a career spanning five decades.
This three-part book begins with a general introduction situating Pavy in the history of painting, and underscoring his radical authenticity and originality, as well as a universality paradoxically stemming from his deep regional connection. The second part reproduces Leupin and Pavy's interviews over the years, where Pavy’s artistic beginnings, his technique, his vision, and the origins of his creations are discussed. In the third section, entitled “Pavicons”, Pavy presents the sources of his artistic inspiration and the recurrent themes that run through his body of work through a large sample of his iconographic elements.
