     The painting “Normandy landscape with a small sunny stream” shows, in a sensible manner, different ways of representing, staging the body, nature and matter. But from a more conceptual perspective, the painting is equally guided by the question of Jacques Derrida’s deconstructionist aesthetic scheme and acts as a postmodern reverse of the setting (raising a radical suspicion about structured language and functionalist and descriptive approaches to traditional hermeneutics).

     The painting “LE GOUVERNE MENT” probes the inextricable depths of the human soul in order to bring the viewer to the paroxysmal serenity of being. On a background of green pastures and lovely sky blues enameled with small bursts of pure white light, the work intuitively explores the truth and freedom of the human spirit in the context of both its societal complexity and singular intimacy. The painter expresses his feelings about universal moments of life, and his own interiority in the form of symbolic and cathartic language.

     Such a title immediately sends us back faster than one would think to the history of Marxism and the thorny debate on the inability to fully account, in the aesthetics of pigment emulsion, of the specificity of dynamic fluctuations of meaning. The properties of pan- (even pro-) chromatic plastic emulsion force us today to revise our interpretation of the pigment classification recognized until then by specialists and chroniclers of jubilant sciences.

     The painting Artist’s view of Port Vicat from Bayonne in dry weather immediately questions the status of art and aesthetic affectivity developed for example by Michel Henry. Is the place occupied by art within the economy of material phenomenology the most appropriate site for the immanent exploration of appearing and the auscultation of the transcendental affectivity of life ?

     Fanciful academic and curatorial speculations, and arbitrary over-interpretation of works of art, can be examples of intellectual siliness such as those amusingly dissected by Roger Kimball in The Rape of the Masters. Kimball takes as his epigraph the well-known saying of Bishop Butler, from 1726, that “Everything is what it is and not another thing”.

     Drawings and paintings, musics and songs are made, and in their making embody unique meanings that transform our perception of space-time and sense of finitude. As Merleau-Ponty wrote in the Visible and the Invisible, “Essence and existence, the imaginary and the real, the visible and the invisible, painting blurs all our categories in unfolding its oneiric universe of carnal essences, of efficient resemblances, and of silent significations”. Soviet Russian classical pianist Lazar Naumovich Berman was a thrilling interpreter of Liszt and Rachmaninoff and a late representative of the grand school of Russian Romantic pianism, but has been virtually invisible on this issue.
