As an actor having worked in an Actor Studio, I’m now entering the room of my unconscious.

You then feed yourself with this emotional universe and you either rescue emotions already inscribed, or you re-create emotional paths. As a seeker after emotions, I have experienced the word, then the gesture of the pantomime; I wanted to transpose the same emotion on the canvas.

I work with mineral and vegetable powders which are therefore alive and which I feed with Gregorian chants: the powders become saturated with these. To revive the colours, I have some of the paintings drying up under a wooden pyramid reproducing the Keops scale. After having performed such preliminary works, I begin my emotional search. According to the emotional scale within which I decide to work through letting go I try to reach emotional purity, just like the ultimate sound of a violin string just about to break.

It brings me, a painter, the privilege of not being dependent on anyone, to be alone with my canvas, the freedom of going as far as I wish, with no restriction, and with the entire intensity I long for.

I’m dedicated to emotion like priesthood.The human being is emotional, and the artist must transcend one’s emotions. The emotion is pure, ultimate and vibrant and enables you to approach some truth, it projects you beyond yourself: it embellishes all those who are touched by its grace. Colours have a vibratory impact on each of us and allow us to reset our energies. Imagine life as a system made up of multiple and infinite vibrations among which human beings act as transmitters, receptors of vibrations.

All these vibrations mingle, intermingle, blend and go away: in this way we are then all linked to one another in a medley of vibrations. Our thoughts circulate. Our emotions vibrate. Imagine that positive thoughts represent the specificity of being extremely radiant and colourful; then negative thoughts would only be mist, indiscernible from one another. Observe this vision which surrounds you and allow yourself to dream.
