ARTIST STATEMENT

Fascinated by urbanized areas where the place of the human being is constantly questioning, my paintings are often inspired by films. They represent intimate reminiscences and existential themes and are the foundations of complex feelings. The viewer invents his own narrative, because there are more questions than answers in the banality of those ordinary scenes. Nobody will know more than what is shown. But art can not be free for those who see their own reflection. Rather than destroying some painting tradition, I fully integrate it into my work and explore the human condition and the space where it takes place. Beyond the simple landscape, his presence, sometimes invisible, creates an action and a tension. With this false peace, a mystery, wich is essential to the reality and to the quiet questioning of these protagonists, settled.
