BEAUTIFUL ORPHANS
 
After many years of artistic creation, my head has become an orphanage, inhabited by abandoned shapes, ideas and projects –
discarded, not for lack of aesthetic or spiritual value, but for being on the wrong place at the wrong time and, for that reason,
not compatible with the artistic project of that particular moment.
Instead of quietly going away, as I told them, these beautiful orphans continue to loudly proclaim their birthright of realisation,
to squat my studio and to clutter up my computer and my brain.
So, under duress, I decided to accord them the life on canvas, paper or wood they so obstinately claim and thus let them create
their own reality and their own legend.

LUNAR  LYRICS
 
Throughout human history, the moon has been a metaphor of the darker side of nature  - of mystery and crime,
of trance and insanity and, of course, of creative madness.
As a died in the wool rationalist, I have no use for moongoddesses and werewolves  -  even less for the disgusting
rites of fascistic moon-sects. But I believe in the beauty of moonfrozen landscapes, the intuition of sleepwalkers
(y compris in science, as Arthur Koestler has so impressively shown), and in the power of the human mind to create
poetry out of a moonlight shadow.

SANCTUARY 
  
For my assemblage work, I also use found objects which are inserted «brut» so as to avoid all risk of prettifying.
Conform to the arte povera doctrine, the material used  -  industrial paint, glue, paper, plywood  -  has no
intrinsic monetary value. The legitimation of the oeuvre is purely artistic.
In my recent work, I increasingly abandon the notion of making images and rather see my wall sculptures as an
extension of architecture  -  building (stricly non-religious) sanctuaries against an often threatening environment.

 LAMINA 1
 
Lâmina 1, created in 2005, was the first picture and as such the matrix of the brainscapes cycle, which later splitted in the abstract Krypta series
and the figurative/satirical transCerebral work. For the transCerebral series, pleause go to http://vlesworks.monsite-orange.fr
