Natural Entropy

A state of the natural world

There is here in his artworks something to do with the origin, a state of the natural world. As he progressed on his research and with each subject he painted, he scrambled all representational codes and all direct gesture on the canvas. Today the canvas is painted by using a cumulation of techniques where no brush or palette knife is used to apply paint. A fascination for pure color, ancient pigments related to art history and just the brilliance of the pure pigment. He experiences transparency, especially in blues and purples defining the undefined spaces. For him to paint is to live the vibration of color, in pure retinal enjoyment.

It is about surfaces, depths, thicknesses, vibrations, erasure and transparency. Through a juxtaposition of layers of pure pigments and for the sake of just thinning colors, his paintings veer to express the idea of an infinite and multiple universe. From canvas to canvas, we perceive his quest for purity and pictorial absoluteness. If he travels between figuration and abstraction, the goal is always the same: to touch the Ether. The Ether as a celestial space in the air of absolute purity, the Ether vibrating under the influence of a light source.
