This painting combines what is real and what is imagined. The composition is influenced by the estuaries and coasts of Brittany, France.
This painting combines what is real and what is imagined. I was born and raised in Paris, but my parents, who lived in a tiny apartment, loved nature and the seaside, so we used to spend a month of vacation each year in Brittany. It was camping on a farm very close to the water. It was there that I embarked on my first adventure on a sailboat with my father and, later, learned to sail alone at the age of fourteen. This attraction to complete freedom never ceased and during many years I used to tow a boat before, finally, I managed to buy a small house at the coast of Rance in Brittany. Now my sailboat awaits me there and helps me find inspiration during my short stay. It is where I take photographs of old boats that abound the Rance estuary.
I am entirely self-taught and my painting technique sets me apart from other artists. I work in gloss paint, an industrial medium, and begin by painting a plywood surface with a uniform base in an off-white color. The medium allows me to achieve remarkably smooth surfaces. Each area of the composition is approached differently; sometimes I create textures by using several transparent layers while others are achieved by the use of a razor blade to scratch away the surface.
