Art and Style
My paintings are often late-impressionistic – with some influence of Fauvism and Colour Field Painting. The early works started with Oil/Acrylic on Canvas, following my father Paul and maybe a bit Vincent (whom I copied in the early days to learn the use of contrasting colours). Somehow a style developed with well-defined colour areas between blending shades and textured elements.
Motives are covering the spectrum nature – architecture – persons, a faible for landscapes and a bit geology. The common ground is the geographic variety that was ignited by so many travels and stays abroad.
Later experiments still use cardboards or canvas formats, but enriched by collage-type assemblages of weathered wood, stones, glas, metal and exotic elements. This activity is currently strongly developing.
