Welcome

Welcome to my Inner World. I am a French self-taught artist, and these past seventeen years I have made Norway my home. Moving to the Lofoten islands was the greatest present I ever made to myself and the Arctic landscapes are indeed a true treat for any artist’s eyes. I live with my British soulmate,… Continue Reading

The Retreat

retreat1

This is one of the very few instances where I used some photographic references: all the plant species represented here actually exist in tropical areas. There is a slight “Myst game” influence here, along with the Indian River from Pirates of the Caribbean. The rocks are kind of inspired by the ones you find around the Seychelles (which I haven’t visited yet). Since I moved in the Arctic, my dreams often take place in tropical areas. Bathing in these green waters is very regenerating. It’s as if the Other World (which was previously nordic/celtic for me) had shifted in the opposite direction, which makes perfect sense since it’s “other” in nature. And again I inserted the Soul Boat, the one that carries you through Life towards the Other World. In my paintings this boat is an equivalent of a gypsy caravan on the Ocean of the Unconscious, nurtured by it but also challenged.

Allegro Non Troppo

Music is a huge part of my life. Music is pure magic, how something so subjective can completely blow your mind remains a mystery. Like love. Music is the ultimate divine language.

Green Man

I dreamt of Green Man. I wanted to organize a party and needed some French beans, so I went to see him and he was very intense and powerful, quite attractive too. We waltzed around and beans started to grow from his head, like beautiful green hair. He gave them to me and I managed to convince him to come to my party. Back home, I had so much trouble preparing enough food for everybody, the supplies had to be endless, the preparation time too. There was so little fun in it, it was so factory like that I wondered if these few guests were worth all the trouble. I decided to keep the human scale and have a simple and sober buffet instead. Nothing too ambitious.
