The morphology of the landscapes, or more essentially, the space that the countryside paints, draws my attention and is like the spark of an idea. As an architect, I see there a breath, a light, a rhythm that can form on its own a principle of beauty. Thus, in painting, I am guided by these places of the countryside, they go through the seasons, but also through meteorological and agricultural variations. So, I imagine the passage from the space of the countryside to the space of the canvas. It is a passage to do without useless chatter, because everything is there. More than using the painting as a means of communication of my own message, I prefer making the painting talk, leaving it to "say the last word". The represented elements compose atmospheres whose impression I seek to accurately convey, like the musician, who accurately follows his sheet music. The figure of the man, who is never represented, is, however, sensibly present in these strongly altered and elaborate landscapes. In this effort, the contemplative attitude prevails, much more than the adventurous attitude. No message and no story should disturb the viewer's perspective…
