How to paint the wind ? You can't represent the wind but you can paint it. Why paint, what to paint and how to paint it ? We paint and draw out of necessity, as we have to eat, drink or sleep. We paint because we are not photographers, pastry chefs or philosophers ... We don't paint what we see but what we perceive in a subjective way and not objectively. Not to reproduce or copy, but to free oneself from it, to distance oneself from it, to retain only clues. We are no longer in the age of beauty but confronted with the real in the face of the virtual. The beautiful and the ugly are the invention of another time. What we have done with the real is unnatural, but it is now the subject. Is beautiful what I find beautiful and you may find ugly and vice versa. Art no longer has the vocation of restoring reality and magnifying it, but of showing reality as it should be seen. We are facing the signs of humanity's extinction, we must paint them to invite ourselves to really see, to emancipate ourselves from the stereotypes of postmodernity, from this "society of the spectacle" denounced as early as 1967 by the situationist Guy Debord. We consume images like we eat crisps, to the point of indigestion. So for me, to do something real in order to incite people to really see is what painting is all about. Like painting the wind.
