I experiment the materials and especially the sands whose textures fascinate me. I use acrylic on canvas or wood and insert, sometimes, mineral materials, (volcanic lapillis, stones, slates ...)
My sands come from all over the world, their natural colors are preserved, even if they are included in acrylic funds of close shade. They are from each of my compositions.
I try to translate a multi-thematic cross-fertilization: use of mixed raw materials coming from different countries and mix of improbable landscapes, recomposed, gathered in fragments in countries far apart from each other.
The baobab is my favorite theme and my object of expression. Thanks to the symbolism of this "upside down tree", I express the link and the osmosis between heaven and earth, material and spiritual, circulation between micro and macrocosm, palpable and impalpable, through a skyline « red thread "of my compositions. This millennial tree, tortured by the earth and by men, but always present, a monstrous and magnificent creature who hatches such fine flowers is an inexhaustible source of inspiration and questioning. For some time, my baobabs are coming to life and more and more are moving towards the representation of small characters half-human, half-plant. These "children of Gaia" keep their branches and their roots rooting more and more between heaven and earth, infiltrating deeper, where the physical meets the subtle. I also work on realizations where the space and the terrestrial universe are connected by a central mineral composition, which constitutes the essential link, the subtle world that unites the energies that could not exist without it.
The base: ACRYLIC PAINT ON CANVAS OR WOOD.
The sands have appeared for about ten years in my compositions. They have subtly taken their place inserting successive keys, but never on the entire canvas.
They come from various continents, fruits of a long collection, and participate in the development of the desired color.
NATURAL COLORS ARE PRESERVED.
Path stones or semi-precious stones and volcanic lapilli are encrusted.
The hold is ensured by different acrylic mediums depending on the granulometry of the sands. Some are practically in the form of pigments, others are coarser.
