CHROMATIC FANTASIAE

"We must see abstract painting as we listen to music, feel the emotional interiority of the work without seeking an identification with any figurative representation. What is important is not to see the abstract, it is to feel it."
Gerard Schneider

THE STORY BEHIND

In my eyes, painting is a form of language per se, a unique language which stems from the musicality of the world, a language with its own rhythm and tempo and movement, associating shapes and colours to form a harmonious ensemble. Hence the title of this collection, a reference to J.S Bach's beautiful "Chromatic Fantasiae"… After all, can one really tone down the comparison between painting and music, when both intrinsically consist of a whole range of tones, harmoniously put together? Furthermore, doesn't one speak of lyricism in abstract art ?

However if my paintings could be put to music, what you would hear would be closer to jazz than to classical music – an impulsive music, instinctive yet controlled, and improvised around leading themes ; a music all at once gentle, daring and unpredictable, and full of meaning ; in short, a seemingly simple yet complex music. In the same fashion as jazz music, the true and full messages and symbols of a painting are rarely accessible at first glance….. You can never tell how many layers and themes will appear, unless you are prepared to study the composition to the full.

For colours to work harmoniously, they must vibrate, they must dance on the canvas like so many notes dotted on the score of Life. My paintings burst with life, associating colour and movement in a vibrant, seemingly instinctive manner ? they call on one's senses to vibrate in unison.
