Following a severe health problem in 2005,  I search a new way to express “ innovative spatial dimensions, new temporal dynamics. » as you so perfectly mentioned about art, Mr. Pagnez, with a technique which could allow me to work even when exhausted to be standing up, breathing the chemicals in my studio. At that time, with a lot of work and patience, I found out the way to make the fusion of my oil-acrylic paintings with the new technologies. I was lucky to get exposure in 2006, both in Lucerne and in Lyon. I am preparing 2 new exhibitions for the end of 2007 : at Vontobel Bank Geneva and at the “Espace Post Finance” in Vevey - Switzerland.
When looking at my work exclusively on acrylic glass panels, please remember that the “white” is transparent, and that a front lighting provides shadows of the painted forms on the walls, giving a sensation of 3D. The “reflexion of the surroundings” is also part of the work. For I noticed many times that a painting sold and seen (by me) on the walls of the collector captured the vibration of the place and is no longer “mine”.
