LINES ON MY PAINTINGS
Paintings are like broken pieces of memories from different periods. In my latest series of
paintings, I have integrated the idea of memories in it. As time passes by, some memories are
partly lost (interpreted as transparent lines on my painting). New memories smooth over the old
ones like a veil (translated as added lines on my painting).
Olivier Masmonteil expresses these in his series “La mémoire de la peinture”. But I also see
real memories interacting with the imaginary ones. Old photos can barely resist the
discolouration process and living memories appear as some broken mosaics, or inconsistent
SWELL - DISTURBING THE CALM WATER SURFACE
Around 60 % of our body is made up of water. In this painting, I have integrated the human "body" back to water as I am ready to go back to the nature of which I am a part. Our body is like a tiny drop of water subtly existing, but it is always part of the immense ocean.
Swell is composes of 4 different parts showing mirroring images of a human body. I tend to arrange them as a pair of koi fish looking for themselves from one another's image. Maybe that reflects my self-searching need of my identity.
