Painting, is for me like a precious need or like a breath. I feel it deep inside in me like an emergency. An emergency to make of the shape, the shapeless.
Each time I am facing a canvas I know that the painting already started even before the fist touch.
I like to establish this initial relation with lines, with drawings, with a general structure.
Usually the painting structure is done with a pencil, and when the painting is done, some of them remains visible.
Behind-the-scene marks, stages of a very personal progress, intimate relation with the canvas appears to me.
At the contrary, I never show an image.
I feel free of expressing my feelings, my troubles, my surprises... A real story take place with the painting. A relationship !
I am fully living this dialogue with the unknown, a mutual confidence relationship is established between the painting and I.
And then, when we meet and face each other, the painting is done.
