     Eric Bourdon’s acrylic painting on canvas “Zoroid turnamble in ornupital herpinaceae” reaffirms a certain interest in the role that aesthetic properties could play in art today. Openly rejecting the aesthetic approach to art on the grounds that it would be morally and politically regressive, obscure postmodern theorists with prominent double chins and thick faces harbored in small, shameful but heavily hydrated meetings the reactionary hope of returning to art its ideological dimension of yesteryear.

     Éric Bourdon’s acrylic painting on paper “X45BKR$” is the expression of what brings back to the painter’s original anchoring in his work. The world of art and aesthetics is an access route already favored by Merleau-Ponty for probing the depth of the visible and sketching a new ontology in The visible and the invisible.

     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”.
