MY ARTISTIC APPROACH

Born in Boulogne-Billancourt (92) near Paris. Professional painter, I live and work in Gif-sur-Yvette (91) Chevreuse Valley near Paris

Living in a big city for half my life has greatly influenced my work. I have a fascination for cities: noisy, overwhelming and lively, yet hiding people loneliness.

I paint mostly urban landscapes: the interiors (shops, cafe, theatre house) full of details and colourful with very few details for the people: they are just part of the scenery but not important to me.

I’ve worked for the theatre for ten years and that experience gave me a love of colours, of framing my subject a certain way.

I have retained a passion for staging and colour.

I don't look for reality in my paintings but for the emotion that emerges from them.

Some quick strokes are sometimes balanced by large and light movements to create an opposition and a respiration in the composition. 

There are often a double signification in my work: the colorful painting hiding some nostalgy. Even when my paintings seem bright and cheerful, there is a part of melancholy behind.

My work is made of lots of layers of acrylic on a canvas, quick rough brush strokes and vivid colours. I use acrylic because it’s a medium that corresponds to my character: I’m impatient and this material suits me for it allows my painting a speed, a raw aspect, sometimes violent; I work in a kind of urgency. Some quick strokes are sometimes balanced by large and light movements to create an opposition and a respiration in the composition. 

Influenced by the theatre, cinema and romantic painters, such as DELACROIX, I love SOROLLA, the great Spanish master of light.

I’ve not intend to change the world but I don’t either want to represent it as it is.

So, I change it to convey some emotion, to give the impression of being in a dream.
