Happy New Year 2019 !

Make as the nature

In spite of a play of seesaw between the representational artist and the abstract, I touch finally a certainty : the debate between the representational artist and the abstract is vain. Indeed, any picture, constituted by touches sometimes juxtaposed, sometimes superimposed, sometimes even melted, forms an abstract group. The representation appears to us by the just position of every element. So, the work makes sense. Any detail taken at random proves this reality.

Today, I need to express simply complex things already explored by other artists. We may make, we may say, there is nothing new under the sun. How would he be differently because the Earth will return to the Sun, where from she been born ?

Only light commands me what I can paint. A landscape without sunshine does not inspire me, it does not infuse in my mind and, therefore, I do not feel his child. At the end of the paralysis of inspiration, the impasse threatens...

If a day without light is a mistake, there is no need to go far to find the beauty of the present. I often meet her in my immediate environment, as a gift from the Sun. It is always interesting to observe nature in order to understand its organization of forms, which makes it readable, coherent, intelligible. I don’t copy her, I do like her, through my temper. Thus, I like to discover the intimate structure of a landscape of my neighborhood, of my region, to cross the presence of his genius.

To see the future of my approach, see , this is the style that will allow me to unify the general expression of my personality. To my greatest joy and, why not, to yours.
