     The acrylic painting on canvas by Eric Bourdon titled “Siege of Bayonne by the army of the Marquess of Wellington” reexamines the strange and peremptory statement of Maurice Merleau-Ponty : “The painter lives in fascination”. If the painter lives in fascination, it is because his gaze is that of who sees as much as of who is seen. What is at stake here is the very question of our presence in the world, a presence threatened and besieged by Marquesses of Wellington of all kinds. An essential question that has its place in the hollow of this fascination which is the irreducible mode of existence of the painter in front of his canvas. The siege of Bayonne calls not so much for a neo-romantic exaltation of pictorial creativity as for an ontology of the natural world in which the layer of aesthesiological meaning that is elaborated thanks to our carnal complicity with the things would be fully explained.

     Eric Bourdon’s acrylic painting on canvas titled “Naos Art Vicat Symphonica in Zo major” expresses the ineffable which must absolutely find expression in one medium or another and which, in fact, can only do so in art, since it is established that doing metaphysics, ethics and aesthetics in ordinary language produces only nonsense.

     Eric Bourdon’s acrylic painting on canvas titled “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.

     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).

     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.

     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.

Classical art causes skepticism, fear and misunderstanding among the general public. Getting to the end of the old representative art ?…
