Painting

The paintings are at the heart of a search for matter and expressiveness. I claim the legacy of contemporary painters like Eugene Leroy, Jacques Truphemus, Frank Auerbach who use the only means of painting to express themselves. This intellectual heritage places my painting towards a certain intimism. The figure and the vegetation 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 radiant force and immediate attractiveness.
