About David Myriam

Through painting, writing, drawings on paper or with sand, I am looking sleek and meaningful forms, to the invention of a particular symbolism to touch each person.
::
My creations mix critical analysis and raw emotion.
Warm colors surround the cold, angular shapes.
Life disturbs coercive human structures, hierarchical or destructive.
By the shapes and colors, I want to talk about the fight and the contrast between the forces of life and s and harmful human actions & constructions.
::
This is to find a freedom, a naive sensibility, to see things from different angles, to highlight archetypes, vicious circles.
It also shows a questioning of violence and freedom, on the place of individuals (human and animal) in collective structures, on the way for move between anonymous monsters and machines.
::
I use color not figuratively, as with the black and white I want to go to the essentials without the eyes can be hijacked by reassuring shapes.
This symbolic voluntary unreality aims to raise see and feel what concerns me.
I would like corrosive colors, such as acids that eat away and scour our eyes and the world to lay bare.
I would like radioactive ink to reveal our prisons, to mutate our visions.
Looking for a painting that burns ashes to release bright faults.
