About The Artwork

i wanted to paint a double portrait with a mirror, a reflect not wearing a mask. the subject is the mask. I usually paint with oil, the subjects of bunny cropped mask sticked on body.... : sticking things creates energy in the composition with their hard edges. such energy is also made by the symetry. i paint masked women (mainly), make oil paintings on canvas based on "collages" ( i work my subjects with photoshop before), kind of copy paste. i like forms but also paint material. i call them chimerias. they are like paganists goddesses said a gallerist once. they are multimeanings portraits. Poetically open on your interpretation. the canvas is made of linen and i like to use a lot of glazes. for this size i will send the painting streched ready to hang. i never use frames.

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.
