Researches: figurative and expressionism. 2016 – 2020
La boucherie du square
A rainy evening
Tourette sur Loup
On a September morning, at dawn, we were going to a flea market. The sky colors were so violent that I thought: if I paint them, nobody will believe they´re real. It is a Fauvist morning at Tourette sur Loup
I quote a photographer friend who, while photographing the paintings for a catalog, described it thus: “A figure of the future, covered but without clothes, silhouetted against a floor of reflections in a dark and gigantic city.”
Self portrait by night
Lost in town
La promenade triste
An evening stroll in a gloomy city, a sordid environment. The story hidden in the play of shadows and gestures.
Loosing a shoe
Downtown brothel. Le rideau
Woman at river
My characters in nature blend with the landscape. Elusive woman washing herself in the corner, almost carved in the background rocks. The grazing light of the sunset is the real subject of the painting.
Le sentier des oliviers
Self-portrait at 3 different ages
Series painted at the time when refugees from Syria were stranded at the Austrian border, during winter in snowy woods.
Notre dame de la Mediterranée. Crucifixion
Notre Dame de la Mediterranée. Deposition
Marseille 1 and 2
In general, when I go to a city, it is to stay and live. But those rare times when I visit them as a tourist, my gaze calms down, partially frees itself from torments and bring out almost didactic moments, photographs of places and people.
