Lot Essay

« Je pense que ce que j’essaie de mettre en place c’est de faire regarder, à moi et quiconque est prêt à voir mon travail, deux choses à la fois, parce c’est bien ce qu’on a. On a ce qu’on imagine de manière idéaliste, représenté par la peinture séduisante, et ce qu’on a vraiment, une vue noircie, une vue très incertaine et difficile. »
“I think what I’m trying to do is make myself, and anybody who’s prepared to look at my work, look at two things at the same time — because that’s what we’ve got. We have what we idealistically imagine, which is represented by this seductive painting, and what we actually have, which is a blacked-out view, a very uncertain, hard view.”
