STUDIO VISIT

Q.

You are known for your work around color, why and when did you start working with black &white?

A.

I came around black and white at a time when I was saturated from the colors I used. It was a liberation, and a sort of rebirth for me.

Q.

Is your approach of B&W works different from your colorful ones ?

A.

Painting and color are one way to speak. If I decide on using black and white, it is because I have decided beforehand to express myself in a certain way. So yes, my approach to black and white is different from color.

Q.

What are your inspirations ? Nature, the city …?

A.

When I think in color, or in black and white (black and white still being colors), I do not think about objects, which are overpowered by color. However, when I paint at my workshop, I am often soaked in the city’s perception, and in Nature’s if I am painting outdoors.
