     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.
