LABOR Artiste                                                      Hybridization

 My work and artistic concerns of 1970-2011

MON MATERIAU c’est LA PEINTURE

MY PAINT MATERIAL is

 

 I METISSE and  I enjoy and try to use

all form of my mental museum

 go beyond all possibles, an art of living

Classical Cubism, Impressionism, Dada, POP materials, colors, drawing, archaism, Conceptual, traditional, contemporary, ....hands in the dough,

my Body participates as much as the mind.

Since  the years 2000

 

My paintings are always pretexts to “ Installations”

The idea really took shape during my installations

The report they have them in my opinion more important than their aesthetic values and plastics specific to each of them.

and the meaning and significance are year by year more and more  present instead of sensitive

 and when I talk about my idea ESPACE is to say : a PLACE where something happens

The Technicality remains the foundation of my work as a contemporary search for a certain classicism and maybe a bit of Universality

 

In my shows, connect or confront the many facets of the past , with  the affirmations  and contemporary issues seems to me  a necessity

Installations Pierrefonds 2011

 

Jazzman (amateur) for many years

I Mixed

diversions, installations, under my brush; this   painting  is necessity for me, I reinvented,  .....to recover  some of my little  Musique ....

IT becomes then  pretext for  a reflection

 

My gaze  on the image and my mind goes beyond the feeling ... to a search of narrative or   story... as my development around the factory  Pierrefonds .I tell and  I remember about the past and I  point  the tribulations inevitable aging

  When I speak of SPACE( ESPACE in french) :this  is the definition of a place where something happens 

........

my story: 

Child, my mother, to calm me down (because I was turbulent) used to take me on his lap and she  sketches me what went through his head and I was immediately fan  I remember:

 

excited to see APPEAR on the white sheet of things that  ... did not exist before, and who lived under his fingers ....

especially any carnations she drew with great dexterity .....

As soon as I could hold a pencil...

I wanted to do the same thing and since this does not  left me anymore ...

The Drawing became my way of expressing myself and testify ...  It  is my way to Exist!

 

 

The painting become  then the next logical step.
