An outsider painting, alive, colored and free

My professional experience is marked by a long abstract period until 2010 followed by an alternating between abstract and figurative painting. After 2013, a brutal change had happened which carry me to a new free figurative painting. Today, my work reflect all my experiences, all my thinking about art, painting and life philosophy. The simplicity is now my master. I am looking for the full spontaneous work, without change, without doubt. I believe in my gestural and color way, in simple compositions, necessary ingredients to express and deliver my messages.

My colored paintings borrows the metaphorical imagination from the child still i am ; more or less visionary, more or less symbolic. In all case, i paint with instinct and obsessional freedom. My painting is the projection of my dreams or nightmares ; it is the extension of my anguish of our world which is without rudder. I try humbly to sublimate this incredible way of Humanity. I also remember the wisdom of the Ancients, first and native peoples which were in total harmony with Nature. This Humanity did not rhyme with cupidity and vanity. Nature was sources of thinking and meditation, the founding of a deep spiritual philosophy.
