Benoît Trimborn was born in 1976, in Schiltigheim (Strasbourg) France. He is renowned for his stunning, large-scale landscapes in oil on canvas. Trimborn categorizes his work as “contemporary impressionism” - as a former architect, he has an eye for the ethereal quality of light, atmosphere and natural beauty. His focus on fleeting light and weather conditions combined with a textured impasto, creates the illusion of a transient and ethereal moment.
Trimborn endeavours to capture the quality of the fields, lakes, and forests in a visually contemplative way. While the presence of humanity is, at times, hinted at by a well-maintained field of crops or pasture of cows, his paintings tend to highlight the immeasurable vastness of nature and the relative smallness of everything else. These compositions are visually stunning, but also meditative, maintaining an integrity for the French landscape and its intrinsic atmosphere.
His most recent solo exhibition is M Fine Arts Galerie, Boston, MA in 2018. He has work in the permanent collections of Galerie Ariel Sibony, Paris, France, Absolute Art Gallery, Bruges, Belgium, and Galerie Bertrand Gillig, Strasbourg, France.
