Hervé Loilier is one of those painters who seek above all the spirit of a subject, the soul of a landscape or situation. “His painting is in his image, reserved and friendly, unobtrusive and yet communicative . Thus it is recognized in the works of Loilier an atmosphere of mystery and almost mystical unreality where the spectator is drawn for the most aesthetic enjoyment. A halfway between mythology and history, Loilier recreates situations that speak beyond the image. One way like another to be prophet in his field.”.
