I am...
everything and everything is me
About my artwork
Driven by outside
Forces floating like the dust
Enveloping me

I make pictures; they drive themselves, inspired from the everyday, flashing imagery before my eyes. The books I read, biographies, which inspire music that takes me away into a Realm beyond this one. All of these things coexisting together, forging links that perhaps are at first not seen. I believe it is possible to link everything.

“Only through Art can we get outside of ourselves and know another’s view of the universe.”
Marcel Proust

Grand. Saw his work at venice biennial and was spellbound by his world of mirrors and beasts. Lost my phone on way home on that night. Was great to see you and thanks for the present. Shall savour it.

Sometimes, just field lines of Earth, very faint, but just see-able, with patience and tuning eyesight... k

I am loved and well loved. I create with that love in the hands, I create in a world I built in my head, my work shop is an island and a refuge to escape from the reality.
I love the artists of urgence , the one who scream and protest and denounce. They are important and essencials, they are my brothers and sisters, (I am an old anarchist !) I do it when I speak, I would sing it, but in my hands, I just escape and build an other world.
It does not heal, it cultivates the beauty. Scars stay, but the strength of the life (resilience ?) allows to continue by enjoying the present if the present is happy. I am just often happy because I have love and luck and friends and food and my body works well, and it is a way to thanks my life to build smiling entities full of colors !
Let's be skisophrene !
I never write so long in english . I wonder if I do it properly enough to be clear and easy to be understood.
Thanks for your comment,
