Artist Statement

"The cathédral n°3", acrylic and wax pastels on canvas, 65 x 54 cm

Although I am more of a flower painter, I also like to explore other subjects, always in a gestural style, such as abstract painting or architecture.
Painting modern cities or elements of historical architecture, it doesn't matter. These constructions are witnesses to the existence of human beings.

This piece is part of a new series inspired by the French writer and artist Victor Hugo, and by his famous book "Notre dame de Paris".
This famous cathedral recently suffered a serious fire, but it remains a major element of our historical architecture.

The style of the Victor Hugo's book "Notre Dame de Paris", is romanticism style, but the true one, dramatical, which is the antithesis of classicism.

Evoking the dramatic romanticism of the cathedral as seen by Victor Hugo allows this architectural vision to be interpreted in a gestural and modern way. I feel authorised to interpret it in my own very contemporary and personal way.

This painting is made in a gestural, modern, spontaneous style. It's made with acrylic in an intuitive way. This painting plays with the pictorial language : colors, forms and shapes, graphism, lines.

Main colors are dark blue and violet, strong orange and reds, with some touched of mauve, turquoise... Highlights of wax pastels animate the pictorial surface with graphics

The painting will be delivered signed on the front and on the back, ready to hang with a system on the back, with an invoice and a signed certificate of authenticity. Shipping carefully packed and tracked.
