The painting’s title derives from Marguerite Duras’ “India Song.” In her film, Duras evokes colonial Calcutta using the 1974 ruin of the Rothschild chateau just on the western outskirts of Paris. Duras has mentioned in interviews that exotic travels in themselves are worthless, it is the internal voyage that counts. I have painted this corner of Paris many times. It is the intersection of the rue Claude Bernard with the rue Gay Lussac. It is the same intersection as depicted in the painting « Contingences 2 », which is in the series « Tableaux parisiens ». As in Duras’ work, where characters float from novel to cinema as inevitable presences, Anne Marie Stretter, the heroine in “India Song”, is also the anti-heroine of “Le ravissement de Lol V. Stein”, in this painting, elements of the past return time and again — the same corner intersection, Lord Yama (he is also in my painting “La Destruction”), the verses of Frédéric Werst’s poetry in his book “Ward”, and the full moon.

I have an unquenchable need to see the workings of the world outside of the circumscribed confines of the art studio. This has led to many lives lived and many roads taken. despite the breadth of this experience, I am a figurative painter. For the past 12 years, I have been painting as a full-time artist in Paris, France.
