Echos Lointains (Distant Echoes) 102 x 73 cm
Following on from my series, Paysages, the desire to evoke nature has dissolved in favour of an explosion of colours. Brushstrokes have become lighter and more dispersed creating spaces of freedom.
No longer being tied by the need to produce an image, I let myself be guided by the density and the energy of colours which merge, attract and repulse; a dynamic and profound universe takes the stage, a kind of original chaos from which all of life may spring.
The subtle and varied touches of colour, by dint of additions and assertions, lightening and softening, being corrected or stretched, finally reveal a sensitive and radiant material: complex colour is the concretisation of a substance which is radiant and intangible, vibrant and alive.
