In my paintings, there are  always little, yet significant  figurative details within a mainly  abstract approach. I like the immersion into color and matter and I like the impact large paintings have. But I also like when some figurative references trigger imagination. Like tracks that  would tell the viewers of my paintings where to follow- like a compass of the spirit. I like the different levels of reading, where  different elements combine to form a global vision that everyone can see or feel in their own  way…

 In the « Cartography » series, the background of  the paintings is made of imaginary maps on which appear visions of colored homes and gardens , the colors of life on the thread of geometry.
