Painting is at the heart of a search for material and expressiveness. The legacy of contemporary painters like Eugène Leroy, Jacques Truphémus and Frank Auerbach affirm my attachment to the only means of painting as a mode of expression. The figure and the vegetable are two themes treated frontally. The obsession with the plant inaugurates a new theme appeared in December 2016, it continues in 2017 with large compositions. This universe allows me to fully express the idea of a sovereign and whimsical nature. The figure concentrates a will of paroxysmal expressiveness. The color is consumed live to give the painted subject a strength of radiance and attractiveness.
