At its beginnings in 1967, A.M Boucher was in line with the Rouen school: The influence of the fine arts, of its teachers - Messrs. Toublanc and Savary - was predominant during his first research. This period lasted 5 years, marked by the repeated confidence of Mr. Toublanc who immediately believed in the talent of A.M. Boucher, helping and supporting him.
In November 1970, it was again Monsieur Toublanc who convinced him to present two paintings to the jury for the Othon-Friez Prize; which earned A.M Boucher the pleasure, one morning, of receiving a telegram announcing the award ceremony
A turning point in A.M Boucher's painting then took place. A desire to see something else, to experience a certain vision of the world, a certain reflection on contemporary society.
This new interpretation of painting confused its audience, pushing some away. Freedom taken, the moorings released, A.M Boucher found an arduous but personal path full of colorful plans, structured like an imaginary. Make way for the phantasmagorical reality but always tender and human.
The moment dictates the choice of formats, large or small: techniques: watercolor, gouache, Indian ink ...
A.M Boucher has to his credit more than 100 personal exhibitions across France or the United States - group exhibitions, salons, press articles can no longer be counted for a painter who has found his place.
Having chosen the Gers to reside there, its colors are nourished by multiple sensations, new feelings, Exquisite tenderness, sun, joys, sorrows, infinity, they are ripened by the violence of the world but also by particular indifference . This is how life goes, so that one day or another an elsewhere may be born in a perpetual quest for ineffable color, a word, a music.
Faithful to the line of the life he had traced as a child and which made him "return to painting" A.M Boucher pursues a destiny of work and artistic achievement, of features and suns offered.
