The habit of working in the plains made me aware of the skies and clouds. I can then reserve most of the canvas for them. With the uncertain and shifting forms of the cloud, the freedom of interpretation, both in pastel and oil, is then at its maximum. .

In the south, in Corsica, in the Mediterranean landscapes, the initial vocabulary is richer on the ground in both shapes and colours. There the skies shrink, shrink or even disappear in front of the exuberance of the soil structure and vegetation cover. But the dry is there the natural element; the plants cross the summer behind their glazed leaves and thorns, seeking some freshness at the end of their long roots. And this gives greens that range from bronze to grey; ochre yellows, blown sharply on purplish soils. And then the blue, always, in the sky as in the shadows. But what excites the range is the red one. It is not seen at first, but it is there in the roughness of the trunk of trees, or pulsating in the dark hollow of a rock, and also at the indistinct bottom of the waters in the moving reflections of the sun. Here too, the pastel knows how to capture the power of the lights and the depths of the shadows. Oil painting is better suited for working outdoors in a changing climate such as in Brittany.

  papiers découpés

Collages and cut-out papers:

carve out in the colour of magazines or old newspapers and this is an unexpected and playful second life for a people of small characters in improbable situations. So many actors for a diversion of current events or mythology.
