Painting on canvas : first and foremost, there is the obligation of the gesture, the impetus that propels me to deposit, connect, build with colour.
The reality : a process of perpetual shift of colours, proportions, while taking the precaution of not touching one’s subject too closely.
There are incidences which occur between the canvas and myself; encounters between those painted incidents and the eye of the viewer.
The imagination: the joy of living, the concrete for the expanse of things, and painting through what one sees, a little of what one thinks.
And also –
The Mythology: inventing how one lives.
The Sciences: inventing how it works.
The Art: inventing how to express it.
