"I wanted to approach my favourite subjects, portraits/landscapes/ still lifes with a different technique than those used until now. My interest in the expressionist movement Die Brücke and their engraved works (as well as those of Félix Vallotton) led me to use linocut. In addition, and since I absolutely did not want uniform ink flat tints, I do not use a press but the technique known as the spoon technique so that a certain texture appears. So, even if the plates are used for several prints, each one is "unique"." - Gilles Konop

A little crudeness in this world of sweetness and if his works were nothing more than modern vanities that, in their own way, remind us of what we were, are and will be.
It is also a work of diversion and significant recomposition of elements borrowed from everyday life and which, very often, gives a predominant place to the figure to the detriment of the background. "Art is what makes life more interesting than art," wrote Robert Filliou - a "genius without talent" who invented the famous "principle of equivalence: well done - poorly done - not done" and who launched that "art is only one activity among others".
