Les Sphères (Spheres) 71 x 65 cm
It was when I thought about the planets of our solar system and how they were formed when cosmic dust was condensed that I decided to call this series of circles Sphères, as my aim was to accumulate and to condense multiple coloured points. Each of the Sphères series of paintings is therefore an aggregate of many touches of colour making up a harmonious whole from a number of heterogeneous elements.
Each circle clearly stands out against a background in soft and more generally bluish tones that is the definition of ambient light, of daylight. The harmony and specific characteristics of each sphere are determined by the relationship between the colours on the inside and those on the outside.
In an attempt to differentiate and to try and qualify them, I have given each sphere the name of an angel from cabalistic tradition; by their very nature, angels have no body, but their presence may be felt thanks to the virtues that they manifest in the subtle world. Colours are a language and their discrete and imponderable energies can awaken in us the expression of immaterial qualities.
