Path of the climbers
You don’t have to go far to find the beauty of the present. I often meet her in my immediate environment, as a gift from the Sun. It is always interesting to observe nature in order to understand its organization of forms, which makes it legible, coherent, intelligible. I don’t copy it, I do what she does, through my temperament. So, I like to discover the intimate structure of a landscape to cross the presence of its genius.
A great adventure
Watching the sun dance on the Meuse at the end of the afternoon, behind a row of trees, I could hear the birds without seeing them, I had the impression of hearing the singing of the trees.
Before I fell asleep, I let myself be lulled by the memory of this spectacle, cherishing it in my mind as an inestimable treasure. How to translate it into plastic emotion by abstract forms without killing the image ?
The next day, Birds' first studies were born, quite simply.
With abstract art, I build a bridge between my consciousness and the universe. I am convinced that a well-constructed, complex absolute form connects, by its points of force, cosmic energies and can harmonize the vibratory rate of our planet. Even if my intuition is not validated by science, I like this idea. In short, I am trying to synthesize geometric abstraction and lyrical abstraction, what I call geolyrism.
Towards a cooling
About 800,000 years ago, the Earth already had CO2 levels comparable to today’s, and, as glaciologists say, there was no industrial activity at that time.
In reality, solar activity obeys high and low cycles. Maunder’s minimum corresponds to a small glacial age that lasted from 1645 to 1715, or 70 years.
In 2020, the Sun will inaugurate cycle 25, a low activity that, according to NASA, will be the lowest solar minimum in two decades.
So we are at a climatic juncture, at the origin of considerable terrestrial changes. See how floods are multiplying all over the world! Water, hail, snow appear out of season in unusual places. However, all glaciation is preceded by incessant floods...
Happy one who has an accommodation with a good fireplace...
The Battle of the pixels
"A painting should be both abstract and figurative; abstract as a wall, figurative as a representation of a space." (Nicolas de Staël.)
Despite a certain precision, there will be a great deal of improvisation in the execution of the work.
Pose of juices
Juice for Lettre à un Gilet Jaune, 2019.
Fragile, unpredictable step, the laying of juices determines all the plastic emotion; this is the moment when shapes and colors are chosen before making love...
