The Paintings:
His large-scale paintings created between 2012 and 2020 exude a singular strangeness, a disconcerting presence – human, animal, architectural or botanical – the evocative strength of the colours, a sensual, confident drawing. What are these men and women looking at? Are they exploring their inner landscape or are they open to the faces and the world that are scrutinising them?

The Films:
Actors dialogue (Jouir, Tuer, Rêver, Mentir, Bouger) or speak directly to us (Suite Parlée), intimacy is what's at stake. These raw, surprising or poignant short accounts inspired by real situations awaken hidden emotions and images.
“My painting has always been figurative, I need a subject even to fight against it. The common trait between my films and my paintings is the tale, a closed world that – transformed by my anxiety – does not seem to come directly from reality. […] It's difficult to explain the power of painting, analysis isn't enough. I like Fernando Pessoa's phrase: “trying to understand is reductive, feeling is understanding” Joël Brisse"
