If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
a French painter, emerging and trying to give through my paintings a little haven in a rash world
About my artwork
i have been said to be an expressionnist, even fantastic expressionnist, some said figuration narrative, some said outsider, they haven't got a clue maybe, i am trying to let the subconscious speak out for itself, and mix images of the common ground of humanity with characters in association, in movement, or relationship, i am arrogant enough to try to perpetuate a "philosophical " tradition in the field of art. Oh yes , and there's a lot of colours, and i like it to be "alive "
Artists I like
hundertwasser - Klimt -Schiele- Van Eyck - Masson - Pollock- Gauguin - Rembrandt - among the ancients, and many many others, in fact i love artists, oh i can't forget Dubuffet and Klee
painting obviously, life in general and how to make it a lovely place, anything boring from politics to philosophy, humour, looking after my daughter too

Thanks for your reply Jeff! i can definitely see how you twist and 'crash' reality in the Material World piece! Perhaps because it is the best seen on a computer screen, which lacks texture. Perhaps because I love to see ugly things (material world) portrayed with beauty! It feels as if you feel the seduction of them too, and are not merely dismissing them.
all the best
