FOUR ELEMENTS AND MORE ...
We are made of four elements (and more) that shape and compose our lives, our feelings, our fears, our joys, etc..
My painting is inspired by Water, Earth, Air and Fire, it expresses all of them and

If I pay "Tribute to Piraneze" by putting it under the theme Earth, it is because from my point of view, this architect deals with that element, but his famous etchings of prisons, which impressed me, suggest also the darkness and the dampness with their gloomy perspectives.

the sand and its “traces, on the gone sea”...
Water, earth, fire, air, space surround us and often enslave us … that must eventually be transcended. The five elements that I keep exploring, form the necessary steps to my quest for a new dimension that attracts me.
I call it consciousness; it relieves my burdens and is proving full of surprises ...
