I have always been attracted to art in all its forms. However, it was not until my adult life that I dedicated myself to painting.
Painting gives the artist endless possibilities, through an infinite range of combinations of colors, patterns, forms, lines and shapes. I try to fuse personality, emotions, and creativity to achieve a universal resonance.
Abstract painting, especially, gives me more freedom to the creative process. Abstraction keeps the viewer wondering what the artist was thinking or feeling while creating the artwork. There are always multiple interpretations. As Degas said: “Art is not what you see but what you make others see.”
Painting allows me to reconcile my multicultural references: the influence of my Asian, African and European ancestors; my birthplace, Martinique, with its own multiethnic heritage; the various countries I have traveled to, the years spent in Latin America, in the south of France, and the Western civilization in which I am culturally grounded.
Presenting my work allows me to share insights with art lovers and other artists. This mutual interaction is very important for the development of my art and the evolution of my work.
