Firstly, I photograph the rich outdoor environment on the island, then I digitally rework the picture and
partially transfer it onto wood. The pigmentation of the image becomes naturally embedded in the
grains of the wood so thus starts my initial process to create the artwork.
After that, I work on the wood, applying various painting techniques I have developed over the years
making my art truly unique. Once completed, the final image becomes a ‘mille-feuille’ of artistic
techniques that blends the photo into the painting… or the painting into the photo perhaps? The
gender of the medium doesn’t exist anymore.
Why this black stripe?
The black stripe that is regularly featured on the base of my artwork is directly influenced by the
architecture of the houses on the island. Typically, facades of the houses on L’ȋle d’Oléron are painted
white, and have a black stripe painted with tar at the bottom of the walls to protect from humidity. The
brightness of the sun on the island lands on these black and white walls and awakens the intensity of
all the surrounding colours, sending them into an exploding brightness. This retinal experience
