VIEW IN MY ROOM
A portrait of my daughter holding a large bouquet of flowers (lilies). i paint "daphnés" as one day some english gallerist named my paintings "paganist goddesses" and because of mythological connotations of all kinds after having painted many portraits with animal heads i wanted to mix bodies and flowers ( or leaves) and called them daphné like in greek mythology. i also started this serie in Cyprus. I like this subject because it is real freedom and creativity, shapes colors lines: joyfull and playfull. This painting dresses up an entire wall.it is a main piece in a room. Because it is very large i suggest to send it roll and have it put back on the woods once arrived. it is not framed. Painted with oils on linen. some parts are thicker to create tactile imression

I live in Brussels, I am a painter and painting teacher at the Academy of Fine Arts. The subject of my artworks is existentialist portrait. In my paintings, the eyes are most often worked or unworked if you prefer. A theme as the hybridization of commercial and popular images drawn from the media and copy-paste for the realization of portraits such as evocations. The masks, here are made as pseudo-collages ( “pretended” cut collage but painted) The mask is a recurring motif, symptom, anachronistic displaced thing. It is a conceptual reminiscence. Mask is something, a form, that returns through cultures and ages and survives its own death. There is something pathetic about the masks which are like “capable of anything”. Painted as a collage in the artwork it creates a particular spatiality, enhancing the geology of the construction and the mutating aspect of someone as well. Combining intimism with hyper-mediated production, abstraction and figuration, the gesturality of pasta and the almost watercolored descriptive form.it highlights the construction assembly of various faces, various aspects of someone. From time to time a thick gestures of paint paste, traces; pink or black impasto, symbolic on a deliberately very fine, airy and flat material. The gesture erasing the eyes transforming the face in an effigy . Elsewhere, an insulating invading space, of almost monochrome colors, enveloping the subject, the background and the figure becoming entangled with a sort of melancholy . Appearance, identity, the subject is elsewhere, beyond representation. Colorfull flowers , animals furs as playfull figures surrounding and invading the human figure as a hope.
