ARTIST STATEMENT

A real difficulty is to write on its own painting and yet….my own studio is a place, a space to practice writing otherwise.
Without a word, in my venture, l paint dreams, silence, my torments. This is especially inside my journey as a solo traveler.
i am working on this recurring theme for me, painting what cannot be seen, what cannot be said.
Conscious, unconscious….
For me, to say is saying again? Sublimate with lines, gesture, by areas of shadow and light.
Reaching to uncode, to understand, may be just a despair behind itself, the solo traveleur facing his destiny.
Go forward, watch, work again and again, facing its dullest terrors, Translate unanswered questions with what is called painting.
Later my journey brought me to a series of canvasses on which collages took place.
Paint, always acrylic, has changed support from canvas to paper, and drew me to a lighter palette as well as inks.
Chinese ink and acrylic occupy space and consist of tangled hieroglyphics, like roots clawing and gripping the sky.
Art exude echoes and build bridges to other worlds.
Up to the artist to accept it.
