Artist Statement

 

When I see a landscape, I take my time to look… I go on a virtual trip, use my eyes to distinguish the complications of colors, and other senses to feel textures and the thickness and humidity of air layers until the whole scene reveals its structure to me. The actual third dimension fades away to reach another one related to the idea. It is then expressed by layers of transparent colors.


I travel inside… I like to use oil paint because it allows me to deal with the layers of  the scene while forcing me to adapt with its own rhythm. I have to respect intervals of time layers need to dry, and this forces me to question my choices again and again during the waiting time. With every new painting I feel like I grow in understanding things somehow…
