wat is painting

Sorry for my approximativ english

THE WAY IN WHICH I WORK I work with oil-base paint according to the old technique i.e. I use his possibilities: glacis, smear, scraping to the tack coat, full paste, brightness, matity, etc… INFLUENCES I affectionate particularly: – Greek art and its way of looking at the human body through its sculptures (school of Praxitèle). “When one has little thing to say, one speaks without stop. Silence weighs only with those which do not think”. – Italian rebirth for construction, the glances, draped, the frank colors, the thinness of the paste, the matity, the brightness, the woman, etc… Angelico, Filippo Lippi. – Vermeer for the light – Post-impressionists to touch it fabric. Vuillard and Bonnard. Bonnard: “alive, spouting out and symbolic system through innocence” – Russian constructivists of the Twenties because the color has a dominating place in the reflexion of the latter and also because I am an architect. – Abstracted expressionnism, in particular Rothko: “of the tables like dramas”. – The abstract one for its function liberator in particular Hartung and Fautrier. MY CREATIVE PROCESS With regard to the tables of women, I seek “the gasoline” of the woman to the philosophical direction; what induces the colors, the expression of the face, the composition, etc… It must y have a perfect adequacy of my thought and technique.
