My painting takes me to other mysteries of other places that belong to me but that I do not yet know.

Start from nothing without a specific project, only that of painting, like a traveler without a compass.

On the blank canvas, a line, a color as a starting point.

And after the Adventure with strong, exhilarating, distressing moments … renouncements, doubts where you get lost, find yourself again.

Flirt, shake up chance. And a magical moment when we recognize each other.

Finally a partial truth.

The journey ends when I feel there is nothing more I can do, when the painting has reached its immediate capacity to shy away from all talk.
