Oil on canvas, palette knife, 40x50 cm, May 2021, France
"Nothing is lost, nothing is created: everything is only transformed"
- Antoine Laurent Lavoisier
Everything changes: objects in nature are short-lived and impermanent.
Splashes of color, blurring of shapes show transformation over time. Matter flows from one state to another, dies and forms new lives, dissolves in the environment.
I would like to capture this movement in space and time, to depict on canvas this fragility and moment of life, using oil and a palette knife, personal artistic techniques: expressive textured strokes, unexpected hatches and fuzzy contours, multi-layered print and transparent gaps, dripping and reflexes.
