On this page I show work in progress, new ideas and provisional solutions.
Gravestone Works, October 2017 – ongoing
It started insidiously. I have always been fascinated by the atmosphere of peace in the cemeteries, and especially by the regrouping of gravestones that have been displaced, re-assembled and aligned against the cemetery’s fence – something I would do myself with my surfaces against the wall in my studio. The gravestones are all different but they share the same territory, they create sympathy: in colour, size and texture. To me they suggest the memorial of life, and I look at them as crafted surfaces emerging from the soil, as much as a platform to think and imagine my future work.
I want to make a lot of gravestones paintings, slowly and organically, made in experience as if I was making a cemetery of surface in my studio. Some are painted over surfaces I made before, and therefore it is also about the death and rebirth of artworks.
