"Caribbean, I live like my morning sun that adorns the sky with its colours, and the sunset that sets it ablaze, for the dance of the night under my stars. It is as I am like fire and water and drains me like the trade winds and the cyclone it erects in my being, a modern animism that has as its frontier only the horizon of my senses and perceptions.

When my ground vibrates, it is to set my senses ablaze, not inert, but always in the constancy of the inconstant, living like my earth as my base of reflections and points of view in their multiple diversities.

Caribéenne is my dance in and through the rotation of my work that makes sense with this world that embraces our horizons and ignites hybrid radiations of our history. Unceasingly in becoming, it weaves by its light the unspeakable poetry very alive of the real in the illusion and the illusion of the real...

To paint is to express the reflection of the living, to discern the invisible by the movement, in the movement of the forms and the colors, to learn how to live the harmony by adopting the attitude of diversity of the point of view in the same space, and to understand that the All is already there."

CONFINEMENT - What path for humanity?

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.
