LE LEONOGONE (Lion, Le Cosmogone)*. Wax on canvas. 2014

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Long time  ago, when I use to live with my parents, there was an image somewhere home, that I loved to cross sight with. I used to see a monkey, but it slowly became a Lion. As my inspiration was blured by the will of  my hand.

I don’t know exactly where it come from, but I think it is from Benin, in Africa. It might be a chimp or a baboon. But I like to see a Lion or a jaguar.

Monday, May 19th, 2014

During my stay in Lisboa, I had time enough to do somehting for the street beside my installation for the French Institute. I’ve been passing by a small street, under a bridge, Rua Rigueiro dos Anjos. “Regeuiráo dos Anjos”. Literraly , “where the Angels grow”.

REMED. Letters in LISBOA.

ENTRE ET VOIS, L’ENCRE EST VOIX. French Institute of Lisboa. 2014.

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

Not long ago, I had the opportunity to visit Lisboa for the third time. I always felt good in that country so I was happy to be invited to create a permanent installation in L’INSTITUT FRANÇAIS de LISBOA.

ENTRE ET VOIS, L'ENCRE EST VOIX.

“Entre et vois, L’encre est voix”. Permanent installation in LISBOA FRENCH INSTITUTE. 2014

While I was sipping some red wine, sitting at a table with a pen in the hand, I knew those words born on a napkin, would later speak on the wall.

“Enter and See, The matter is We. Here is present, the Essence. And You ? Between me and you, the Other me is You !

Where are You ?”

This happen while I was living in Alfama, 2 weeks in a beautiful and lightful neighborhood whose streets make you feel like you know that place. But when I first arrived …

CONSCIENCE DEVENUE MATIÈRE. Un Poême *

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

In between the previous drawings, I also been living, talking, thinking, and dreaming awake.

So beside the lines, I also find words who wanted to play with I. Or the opposite. I first search them on a sketchbook, without thinking, just like the lines. I hear one word, say it, he will call the others. The first one was and is “CONSCIENCE”, or Consciousness if said in english.

CONSCIENCE DEVENUE MATIERE

CONSCIENCE DEVENUE MATIÈRE. Wax on canvas. 115×101cm. 2014

I found the first sentence which became the Title, the global direction.

“CONSCIOUSNESS BECOME MATERIA”. Then I kept on finding a variation of ways, those made of association of words and ideas, the whole aiming for the same global harmony finally born through the repetition of the structure achieved on the first sentence.

THE ART OF FREESTYLE. Part 5

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

About The Art of Freestyle, with pleasure again. Cultivating the ability to forget (what you think you know) so that you can be fearless of the mistake, or repetition, and eventualy Create in a free and purified way.

The fifth part, a beauty full number. Hamsa. The Quintessence. The reunifing step of the Opus Magnus.

But let’s not analyse too much and just present the process of a released mind through the “memorylessness” of his hand. So here are a serie of three drawings who decided to be created beyond my will. The first gesture was the seed of its sisters lines and brothers shapes.

MIRA, LA LUNA !

MIRA, LA LUNA ! Wax on 300g paper. 70×100cm. 2014

For this Artwork above, I started, as usual, by looking at the paper…long time…until i don’t remember how long.
