The Four Seasons
When I meditate on the rotation of the Earth around the Sun, already halfway through his life, I am amazed by so much beauty in this cosmography that offers us every season. That is why I want to pay tribute to this natural phenomenon with a series of four paintings, starting with The Spring. For this project, I chose the village of Crupet during the haying (the smell of mown grass is already a joy). In this video, what you see is just a sketch... to maintain the enthusiasm of my vision of things.
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.
Study for Birds
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.
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.
To this is added the attenuation of the Earth’s magnetic field caused by the displacement of the magnetic poles.
We are therefore at a climatic crossroads, at the origin of considerable terrestrial changes in contradiction with the theory of anthropogenic global warming. 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...
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...
