Art and science are inseparable
At the water's edge
With this canvas, it seemed interesting to me to suggest the castle of Freÿr instead of showing it, by a row of trees on the edge of the Haute-Meuse : the Orangery disappears in the light of the backlight.
This approach allows to concentrate on the subject by releasing the touch of the yoke of his drawing, where mastery and improvisation sometimes compete with the star.
Nothing is solid, everything is vibration.
With the theme of Landscape, I gradually give up my oscillation between figuration and abstraction to meet my need for synthesis, by means of clean, dense and penetrating plastics. I aspire to a suggestive art, therefore abstract, without necessarily losing the figurative aspect. In other words, I have only one ambition: to see the real with the intelligence of the dream.
Bye bye, sweet France...
How can you translate the movement of the Yellow Vests into plastic language, without pouring into the tearful imagery? In these manifestations, there is a lot of yellow (life in distress) but also sulfur (spontaneity), green (hope), grey (sky), blue (jeans), purple (sadness), red (war wounds). black (law enforcement and black blocs) and white (street medic).
In a democracy, the blood of any protester should remain in his body because protesting is a constitutional right; therefore, I invite you to sign the petition initiated by Laurent Thines, Neurosurgeon and Department Head of CHRU Besançon for a Moratorium on the use of sublethal weapons.
I dedicate this work to all Yellow Vests mutilated for life.
