For me, painting is above all a practice. I have always thought that the more limited the means are, the more intense the expression is, this probably explains by the almost exclusive use of black.
Black and white seem to me to have the character of simplicity, absolute and rigour that suits me. My painting also plays on the duality of black and white and is based first and foremost on the primordial confrontation of light and shadow. The approach that seems to me to be recurrent through the succession of my paintings is the refusal of description. As Paul Klee said, "Art does not reproduce the visible, it makes the visible".
Painting is above all a poetic experience. That is to say, internally, but transforming the relationship with the outside world. Where is it done, somewhere between the eyes and the hand? The interpretation of a painting is entirely left to the freedom of the viewer. From then on, I seek to ensure that these great black forms set in silence and light are offered in a single glance, for everyone to give them meaning....
