Paintings

Polyphonic painting is a painting of relief and imbalance. It seeks to produce a moving image between the viewer and the light, leading to a sense of mobile abstraction. It searches an optical movement that leads to an illusion based on high contrasts made between the darkness of Prussian blue and the light of neon colours. It fights the photocamera as the painting can hardly be taken in picture. Painting forest and umpty lanscapes is a choice to give the world another face. The contrast of Prussian blue oil relief and clear color unbalances the figurative landscape. Here the forest is disappearing in the shadow of the blue and only remains the forms suggesting a dream. The forest artist has difficulty to paint forest and pure landscape like umpty beach because pure landscape no longer exist in our contemporary urban world. Painting the forest dream or the forest that remains is seen as a side practice of planting them. Renewing with the impressionist tradition of planting a garden before painting it, the forest artist is painting forest that will take existence in the future after his work done.
