I tried to paint a complex abstract white playing with charcoal and some colored chalks. I used white gesso and acrylic in miscellaneous layers, to give a feeling of complexity despite the fact that the piece seems simple at first glance. The title "L'Indifférence" comes from the music of Pearl Django I was listening when finishing the piece with charcoal. (signed on the back & on front ; vernis semi matt)

- Photo: Naples, Italy, March 2019 - Born April 1947, married, 2 children, 5 grand children. - Graduated in economics, then swiss banker in private banking from 1974 to 2007. - Started drawing in travel sketchbooks (self taught) at the age of 48 in 1995, and painting much later in 2007 at the age of 60. - Also "urban sketcher" (http://christophemercier-travelsketch.blogspot.ch). My desire to paint comes from the interest for expressing something aesthetic or gaudy, for finding an unstable equilibrium, for experimenting with different approaches, for renewal, testing, trying. Even though I’ve done mini-series, I don’t like to stick to one repetitive process. To me, painting is a dialogue between control and letting go and abstraction is of particular interest because it allows us to to express things that would otherwise escape our senses. It’s still a large field, even though everything is supposed to have already been made.
