Making contact, the first contact with Painting means excluding all prejudice.

Nowadays Art uses contemporary materials: artificial light, digital medium, plastic materials, be they salvaged, theories and concepts ... can we just talk about Painting ?

I believe that I'm not alone in a search for real light, one that cannot exist without shadow, without darkness.

Touch with first sight ... a human look. How much of an animal does a human being have inside himself ? And what about the "human" side to an animal ? How can we sense our links with our own instincts and deeper nature?

Animal Painting ? Not necessarily.

This work is above all, I feel, a simple human approach that I would like to share, through my Painting, exempt from discourse, in search of our original strength.
