Painting is nothing but humorous landscaping. The most interesting, in the theater of life, is not as much the play I am in, but the pathways that lead to these roles. To paint offers me a way to carve and shape a reality which remains, to most, subjective. Being instinctive, reality does not aim at blending in with what is real but drinking from it in order to extract what is essential, a feeling, that I wish to be fat and heavy, making it almost graspable. I pull my subjects to their extreme limit, towards tension, leading to near rupture. I do not try to express peace but, truly, to beautify this part of doubt which makes us move forward
