1980 Born in Paris (FR)
I paint commonplace subjects trying to make their presence exist. So many events are inexpressible : the tint of a skin, an odor, the density of a wall, the air between two objects, worry, wonder... Painting enables you to gaze at fresh fixity, and whether you stand up close, far away or very close, it does not tell the same story. It also enables you to keep quiet, to restrain from the protection of words. The Mona Lisa is just a smiling girl. The pleasure lies in seeing what is there, without ever being able to absorb it, to accept it as it is. You don't even have to look.
Paintings are present, if ever.
