Catalogue Note

"I wanted to find a way to use color so that it was not a painted testimony but a reality that expressed its own condition - that is, the reality of light. Living things surround us, and I wanted painting to replicate that vital experience through color...I found a very untraditional support in the Physichromie, which is something entirely different: an optically unstable nonpictorial plane that disrupts the visual experience, creates genuine alterations, and modifies the behavior of the painted surface."
