Lot Essay

« J’ai l’impression que ma peinture est elle-même danse et aussi que la danse des vrais danseurs se suffit à elle-même et pourrait tout aussi bien se passer des décors et même, peut-être, de la musique. Si on ajoute paradoxalement que la vraie danse pourrait aussi se passer du danseur, alors on est très près de ma peinture. »
“I have the feeling my painting itself is a dance and that the dance of true dancer is enough by itself and could very well do without decor and even maybe without music. Paradoxically if you add that the true dance could forgo the dancer, then you are very close from my painting.”
