Boncompain’s celebrates the pleasures of life with a Mediterranean vividness. His paintings, executed for the most part in Paris, are evocative of the environment and lifestyle of the South of France. He displays a wide combination of modern influences, combining a radiant and joyful Matisse clarity of light with a simplicity and arrangement of form that brings to mind Milton Avery. The vibrant and earthy colours of these works; terracotta, ochre, rich purple, deep red and blue, elicit memories of Gauguin’s Tahitian paintings.
