"I made this portrait of my friend Guy when I mixed the oil with the graphite pencil. I was fascinated by the portraits of the Fayum, which are those images discovered in sarcophagi in Roman Egypt in the first centuries of our era. The look of these portraits gives an extraordinary presence to the mummified body that accompanies it. It is a perfect example of an image that has survived the centuries and has come down to us in an exceptional state of preservation..." - Paul Leroux

Paul Leroux has a taste for images worn down by time and external demands. It is this process that he is trying to replicate in a hurry. He favours the accident as much as possible, wears out the images and provokes them to see how they react.

On the easel, the image has to struggle to survive and the figure ends up existing in an accumulation of layers of paint. The material obtained is its flesh, it is it that gives it its thickness, its intensity. Mallarmé’s sentence inspired him: "Painting not the form but the effect it produces..."
