Born in France to Caribbean parents, MéTURA’s creative drive is based on the observation of nature, humans and cosmogony. Through observation, he has the unique ability to create paintings that seek harmony in the whole. MéTURA’s work offers visibility, multiplicity and diversity of meaning, allowing the viewer to rotate and/or juxtapose his works. His work provides an anthem that initiates, erases and wipes out space by transmitting the viewer to engage within himself to ex-polish its foundation.

MÉTURA holds a E.R.A.P.M. from the Regional School of Plastic Arts of Martinique, Department of Art, Specialization in Painting, C.I.P. (Plastic Initiation Certificate), C.E.S.A.P. (Higher Certificate of Expression of Plastic Arts), D.N.A.P. (National Diploma of Plastic Arts), D.N.S.E.P. (Higher National Diploma in Plastic Expressions at ERAPM) and C.A.P.E. (Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Exam Diploma).

MÉTURA has participated in international cultural exchanges with the Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator (D.V.C.A.I.) in Guadeloupe and Panama, Prize of the General Council, the DRAC GUADELOUPE in Paris, France, and the Third Havana Biennial with ERAPM and DRAC (Regional Director of Cultural Affairs) in Cuba. MéTURA’s work has exhibited in Martinique, France, Guadeloupe, Guyane and the United States. In 2022, MéTURA’s artwork from his Hint of Illusions subseries was exhibited in Miami, Florida in the international exhibition, Depth of Identity: Art as Memory and Archive and in 2023, his solo exhibition, Double Vision will be on exhibited in Baltimore, Maryland.

Rosie Gordon-Wallace, Founder and Chief Curator of D.V.C.A.I., articulates MéTURA’s artwork with these words, “…MéTURA believes his paintings serve to connect “the human dimension to its rightful reality in the cosmos.” His abstract works seek to make visible the fraught histories, and inexplicable effervescence of the Antillean region through form and color… In the works in his Hints of Illusions subseries, MéTURA creates diptychs, merging canvases replete with frenetic impressionistic marks, and a palette of hushed tones. His chromatic choices are subtle; gently they beckon us to look more closely, to allow our eyes to follow every line and mark within sight to develop a new understanding of not only the Caribbean, but ourselves and the lands and histories we inhabit.”

Creole is my dance that vibrates and ignites my senses that encompass our history, our thoughts, our forms and colors of life in harmony with diversity. My paintings become molecular - spatial. A link between the infinitely small and the infinitely large connect, as if to situate or bring the human dimension back to its true reality in the cosmos. The understanding must evolve - to detach itself from the human and redesign itself on the scale of Mother Nature... This work of tasks and vaporization aims at that, to destructure.

I arrive at this song of the Universe that vibrates on all things - interior and exterior. I deconstruct the forms, thus drawing a mental alchemy, which operates a calcification, like a molecular song which makes us hear, perceive, the "noise or sound" of the Universe, the only real link, inexpressible but eternal...my painting is quantum. The rest is just a hyphen to connect my humanity.

After putting in incidence of juxtaposed canvases, to form what I called paving stones, I desired to rediscover the continuity of gaze and points of view. Aspired/inspired by working in this manner, as to have a reflection of my inner being in my expression of how I felt the Caribbean gaze…to live the dance of the island. With this vision of multiple axes, both anchored within its being but also in the legitimacy of colonial slavery history and colonial post, the exchange of points of view also turns towards the illusion of multiple horizons. Thus, all my works pivot to offer four to eight directions of readings/viewing/perception/perspectives. It is added given a vision in levitation which moves direction ceaselessly the axis of glance, eliminating the window rebirth.

Then came the COVID marker of my work that I introduced the pulverizations which brought a particular print leaving traces of memory and identity. Arriving now, this will/spirit to make and to build a reverse glance from where the canvases recto verso.

We live in the visible materiality. However, we are spiritual vibrations. Here, now, I pose the question of the nonvisible in a more visible way.
I sketch with this idea – the digitized life.
What path for humanity? The reality of this global pandemic marches the path of the illusion of life, for some it underlines its magnitude. Witnessing our own reflections of life/living, we have the opportunity to discern the visible/invisible as it relates to our own existence. Fragile for man/woman in appearance or not, we are little at the end of the scale of nature, which regulates itself.

The movement of shapes, colors and words, provides another point of view. If we make the time and space to elevate in understanding our connection, we can heal ourselves and our Mother Earth by adopting the harmony of diversity. Within our being, we will learn to see, to hear, to touch, to smell and to taste the richness of our world. A deeper understanding of knowing that the small acts are just as important, will radiant a new horizon of reflections in knowing that the All is already there.

My work during the confinement of the global pandemic, leaves traces of memory and identity. It proposes that you look, where the more/less fortuitous specks are redefined in space and constantly form the look and perception in the image of Our Mother Nature and our relationship with her. What a path, what after-effects. The story that is being conveyed, can be approached from the various fractions of space. The dynamics of our existence and the Nature we are to preserve, can trigger our interconnected journey.
It will enable us with the ability to create and maintain our link - the Source, is always CulmiNation.
