After graduating as an art
historian at the Ecole du Louvre and at the Institut d’Art et
d’Archéologie de Paris, (1975/1980) I worked in cultural communication
for a number of years before definitively turning to painting in 1997.
Both my training and my previous work have enabled me to create from the
start a mature work, inspired by my passion for colour. Indeed, colour
is an essential aspect of my work, both as brute material and as the
privileged means of expression of my research.
The importance of compositional structure, of movement, and of the
permanent interaction of colour, is the thread linking all my works
Since 2002, I have developed a style of creation where the pictorial
element meets reality through the subjects I photograph: natural
elements, landscapes, flowers or portraits…
I integrate these elements into my numeric creations in order to create
imaginary representations or dreamscapes.
The objective representation of the subject is undermined and used but
stays a consciously vindicated aspect of reality which is integrated in
It is this meeting, between my imaginary vision of the world and its
objective reality as expressed through photography, which I have been
exploring with passion. These lateral relations have opened up the doors
to the most creative means of proposing my own vision of the world
I work and I live in Paris.
