2005 to 2008: THE HINGE


2005 is a pivotal year in the construction of the artist's work: the materiel (wax and pigments) generously applied, surpasses the subject in its expression of emotion. The underlying idea refuses nostalgia and emerges from an eternal gravity tinged with melancholy.
The blue which had been muted makes its appearance in a more sustained manner and plays a more important rôle (Ronde – 2007) punctuating the painter's work through phases of construction/deconstruction to the point of purifying the support in 2009.
Representing Monaco at the Olympiades of culture, Expositions Officielles de TOROC (Organising Committee of the XX Winter Olympics in Turin 2006), considerably establishes his technique. One senses an undeniable ease in the technical structure of the works, which shows the artist's vigour and generosity, linking it to the search for meaning and language in the painting.
Certain « Majors » appear during this period (Fadhia – 2006 and Mariele – 2005 which take a year to research, construct and perfection).
