REMED working on ORION, KANAAL & THE MESSAGE. Marrakech. 2014

Morrocco is a very inspiring place, it plays a key role in the evolution of my Art and Self. As before, I stayed around 40 days in the old imperial city, living and working in the medina, inside the walls of the Kasbah. There, Time dissolve into some other perspective. More flexible. That enable me to create many new canvas one after the other, A sort of tribute to the genesis, a documentation of the evolution of the mind, body and soul during the process of Creation. From the intention to the chosen realm.

MINGALA, GURIGURI & THE PYRAMID OF PILBARA. Australian timeless journey.

Last year, somewhen blured in Time, I had the amazing opportunity to discover a continent I never been to before.

Australia, and the desert of Pilbara. A place that holds the memory of human consciousness. A place were linesongs are being sang for 40000 years. A land were invisible is tangible. Somwehere you can hear the memory of Vibration.

MY ROOTS ARE MY WINGS, MY LINES ARE OUR SONG. Pilbara desert. Australia

MANI GURI MINGALA. Pilbara desert. AUSTRALIA.

Here are the words out of an interview with Sharmila WOOD from FORM Gallery :

“I arrive in the places that I travel, empty, so that I’m able to learn something for real and leave something for real; this is the opportunity you have in a journey.

REFLET DANS LA MAIN, LE TRAIT DU DEVIN. Acrylic on canvas. 2014

Last year, I was not much in my studio since I was on the road most of the year…but when coming back to Madrid, I always enjoy to paint when I got time and will for it. Always expecting to discover more of who/what I am at the present time. I try to really see, no to lie, just to assimilate, accept my inner feelings about my outside context…and leave the line tell me who I am in the now.

The truth is my friend Dr.Rafael Schacter asked me to create an artwork representing the map of my city, Madrid. I tried to throw some lines and words on a paper about where I live…but when the virgin canvas was hanged in front of me, I could only see body lines, sensual, organic, in movement. I couldn’t work on the cold structure of a city,

EL HOMBRE JAGUAR. From Cholula to Manhattan

While I was in Newyork, I’ve been proposed to realize an indoor mural for a great Mexican restaurant in Soho. I was just coming back from Cholula, a town in Mexico litterally built on a pyramid, on which was then built a Church, over which I seen a large rainbow while I was painting a Jaguar. I was there, on the otherside of the fence, at the frontier of the ancient Temple.

So hopefully, in Newyork, I’ve been able to create a colored version of the jaguar previously borned in Mexico.

JE PENSE, CAR JE SENS, DONC JE SUIS. Ceramic mural in Manhatan. NYC 2014

Meanwhile I was in touch with HOLIDAY magazine for the interview, I’ve been introduced to Aurelie Biderman who came to my studio for a chat and offered me to create a mural for the new store she would open in Lafayette street, downtwon Soho. I proposed to create something diferent, and we met David, a great artesan from Beacon.

I took the train by the river and went to work with him for a few days cutting fresh clay and seeking color alchemy in his studio.

David was placing fresh ribbons of clay of 50x70cm, I would cut them with a knife, smoothly, trying not to hurt the clay since she has memory, and would distort if being to rough. I eventually found a great pleasure when having the hand driving the blade softly through the soft matter.

Here is a few picture of the tests..

HOLIDAY MAGAZINE. Cover & Interview. n*69.

It´s been around a year I haven’t took time to write about what I lived and created. I’ve been traveling some, and focus on where I was as much as possible.

Somehow because of the internet being a time thug, and also because I needed to juxtapose informations ino rder to fuse a global understanding. Or maybe just for lazyness…or because I’d rather go out or paint than be in front of the computer.

But hopefully someone did part of it for me. Indeed, last year, the atelier Frank Durand contacted me because they were interested in featuring an interview with me. I had the pleasure to meet François Musseau et Matthieu Salvaing who came to visit me this summer,  in my studio, in Madrid.

ART AS A REMED(Y) is the title Francois choosed for the interview. L’Art comme Remède. Because Art is made to cure. To remember, to recognize, to oversee, to understand, to question, to tell, to heal.

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

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

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. 115x101cm. 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.
