“The model that poses for you is made ​​of flesh and blood, but what must be caught on canvas is its emanation. (…)

You distort what you see, in your own manner, and we can say that the particular mode of distorting things signifies a certain attitude towards life. ” (Francis Bacon)

Exhausted

In “Exhaustion” it is me  with my dog, at the countryside, during summer, asleep in the fields.

But what I feel that is conclusive is what Francis Bacon said in an interview:

“What I feel it is conclusive is that when you are painting a man sitting, just like this, in a room, or walking down the street,

almost all the people looking at the paintings seem to agree that they portray anything but a trivial or neutral situation

and that figure is involved in some sort of crisis – perhaps the idea of ​​an imminent disaster. “

“Sometimes, you feel like punching in the table and cry aloud: – Enough, let the time alone, time is intangible,

time should not be challenged! Is space not enough for you?

Space is human, in space you can frolic as much as you want, you can tumble,

you can roll over, you can jump from one star to another. But (…) do not touch the time! (Luigi Pirandello, excrept from “The Notebooks of Serafimo Gubio”, own translation into English) Continue reading

CHILD POINTING WITH HANDS: “KING”

“King” – 90 x 90 cm, gouache and paper on canvas

“KING” is the second artwork of a series that I plan to realise one day. I have about 30 ketches that I realised at the age of 2-3 years old. Some sketches have annotations that proof the age (“deux ans et demi” – written in french language – two years and a half), mainly dated around 1989. What is interesting is that these old drawings correspond entirely with my reveries and visions as an artist.  Here is the sketch that stood at the basis of “King” :  Continue reading
