CHANGING THE WORLD
Vign_envol_icare

I know that art is do-it-yourself. Of forms, colors, materials, techniques, harmonies. That in reality indicates a redefinition of the world, a band-aid which allows the artist to repair the universe in the measure of his human aspiration.

To redefine, to patch-up, to put back in a different order, to resume, here are verbs which place creativity where it can only be. 

Through my art I try to represent the basic energy which circulates in each of us, making possible our existences. I want to express the excitement of life that beats, by curves simulating movement of water or wind which is the harmony of fluids; by the colors which are emotions. 

IMAGINATION IS A WEAPON
Nature is a lavish mistress which bathes us in the idea of perfection. Does she not produce all the time masterpieces of stunning imagination? Mother nature is the attic where the artist draws the elements which he arranges differently. 
The artist uses the elements of the world to make it into something better. And his imagination is its weapon of massive reinterprétation.

FUNDAMENTAL ATTITUDE
Vign_encuentro
I am not entitled to originality by asserting that I draw, paint and create mosaics from a vision which longs to possess harmony, or something related to the idea of perfection, because it is fundamental attitudes which lead the artists. 
 
By drawing, when I paint forms and colors or cut and put enamel tesseres according to a more or less precise, inhabited purpose of a pack of feelings, I turn to visit a memory, I reproduce a vision I believe it should be shared, a layout of the world, I reinterpret a blow of pleasant eye. 
A body, a curve, eye, a landscape, an abstraction. What I paint defines me. I am a refillable eye.
ART IS UNNECESSARY
Vign_Africa_Queen
Painting and mosaics are arts which, as all the arts, try to relieve a world which is to be relieved.
Art is superfluous and useless, that is why we cannot accounting it. The non-essentials and the useless confirm our humanity,
that is our profound and imperative need for beauty and harmony.
 
When I draw, I look for the energy which I transpose by curved lines and repeated. The energy it is the fundamental.
Everything leaves from there. All forms of energy authorize and extend the life. 
My Art represent life.
