Creation process

Art, emotional vector of expressed or unconscious questions, is the sensitive expression of sentiment of the world. Philosophy is a questioning of the living, the being, the causes and values. When art examines the meaning of life and referring existential questions, it becomes Visual philosophy.

The art and philosophy encounter is intimate. Its inner expression, unique, instinctive, beyond the narrowing and driving words, open new and necessary spaces for whom receives it. Emotions, free from the mind, convey enlarged understanding of the self, in the other, from the other, of our responsibilities and the symbolic value of what run into us and teaches us.

The visual philosophy concept, is enunciated to open new fields of understanding and expression of the world exploration and meaning. It is a specific way to return and receive the world.

Art is, here, understood broadly: visual arts, poetry, gastronomy, music, dance etc.. Emotions, vibrations are generated out of educational purpose, they have their own ways beyond their authors. When crossed, in the in the context of dialogs, collaborations, joint researches, those various medias increase the experimentation and knowledge fields.

Along my way, I have grabbed branches, feathers, pebbles, I have threaded beads, embroidered names, retained pictures, sought for meaning. Gathering the all, 6 matrix trees arose. They tell the path of the human, his destiny, its confrontation to the society, his exile, his return to memory, the freedom he gains from it and his divine part.

In the following stories, those matrix nourish and structure my quest. Looking deep into the ground for roots, or soaring up toward the sky, my branches grow and feed themselves to build meaning to be shared.

My work, artistic expression, is about representing emotionally existential notions. Put together, those notions create stories and questioning. This questioning is broaden by the confrontation with other creators.

In this website, I offer you to confront randomly some notions I have explored to create your own process or story and to allow yourself to be drift away by what will arise in yourself.

(Beginning with oneself)   To begin with, I must recognize that any conflict between myelf and the other are only expressions of the conflicts in my own soul. Then I must seek to overcome these inner conflicts to emerge as a transformed person, at peace with myself, so that I may be able to establish new and transformed relationships with my fellows humans.(...) What is essential here is to begin with oneself. In that instant, I should have no other concern for the world, only for that beginning.(...) This transformation of myself is the fulcrum from where, like Archimedes, I can move the world. If, instead, I were to establish two Archimedean fulcrums, one here in my soul and the other in the soul of my adversary, then my enabling vantage point would vanish.

(Not to be preoccupied with oneself) To begin with oneself, yes, but not to end with oneself. To advance from the self but not to be self-advancing. To be self-aware but not preoccupied with oneself.

Deutéronome 22, 6-7 Si tu rencontres en ton chemin un nid d'oiseaux sur quelque arbre ou à terre, de jeunes oiseaux ou des œufs sur lesquels soit posée la mère, tu ne prendras pas la mère avec sa couvée: 7 tu es tenu de laisser envoler la mère, sauf à t'emparer des petits; de la sorte, tu seras heureux et tu verras se prolonger tes jours.

כִּי יִקָּרֵא קַן-צִפּוֹר לְפָנֶיךָ בַּדֶּרֶךְ בְּכָל-עֵץ אוֹ עַל-הָאָרֶץ, אֶפְרֹחִים אוֹ בֵיצִים, וְהָאֵם רֹבֶצֶת עַל-הָאֶפְרֹחִים, אוֹ עַל-הַבֵּיצִים--לֹא-תִקַּח הָאֵם, עַל-הַבָּנִים. שַׁלֵּחַ תְּשַׁלַּח אֶת-הָאֵם, וְאֶת-הַבָּנִים תִּקַּח-לָךְ, לְמַעַן יִיטַב לָךְ, וְהַאֲרַכְתָּ יָמִים.

My first encounter with the work of Isabelle Roy, was at the Red House. A large part mirrors referred that the image of him who was facing but invited to watch small stools, voyeur, inside the box, through eyecups which left more guess, imagine what to see, the scene unfolding inside. The second time was in the hospital Saint Anne in the Singer Museum, where two by two, visitors could observe an open cocoon in an overheated room. A strange and dreamlike scene took me to places never explored in me, freeing spaces for creativity and possibilities. This is why I share the work of this artist with you.

Commenting on a mandala whose center was left empty, Jung said that its center was the new era, the era which we have now entered. We are the observing center of the mandala which now revolves within human consciousness as consciousness expands to encompass the globe. The globe is a mandala whose center is us, whose center is the consciousness we bring to it. Our consciousness in the perceiver that can change the perceived.
The us who will one day live in the center of that mandala will be both masculine and feminine, united in a partnership of equals. That union transcends without denying gender; gender is the differentiated manifestation of the oneness that transcend it. To call the us at the center « androgynous », with its primitive associations, is inadequate to what we as conscious beings and world citizens are becoming. Perhaps a better understanding lies in the concept of human identity coming into consciousness through recognition of what is foreign to us, not as alien, but as the instrument of recognition. The feminine is the instrument of recognition of the masculine, as the masculine is the instrument of recognition of the feminine. The one is present in the other as the instrument of consciousness itself.

Daily life as inspiration

Raw Saps | Save the date - 11 April 2018

How long lasts the present, when does the future become the past, and what does the past say about what is to come.
The land art installation at Château Palmer, has long ago vanished, and the images that will recount and imagine the future have not yet come together. The past, large lava/glass flow has not surfaced yet. The giant drawing, composed of 180 smaller drawings, has completed the representation of the present.


Raw Saps |2| The deep fragility of what is to come - 10 April 2018

It would be a text about a land who welcomed and allowed me to unveil its essence. I came with iron oxide and glass silicate as well as my fellow partners Jean-Francois, Elad, Marie, Federica, Sally and Momo to draw the underlying life of Bordeaux's land. The project seemed right and all the Men subscribed to it. But I didn’t ask the land, and I felt  an apprehension I couldn’t define. The women perceived it as well, and I was petrified, questioning the whole project, when we were already in the vineyard.


Sèves Brutes |1| Shadow and light - 14 February 2018

I will be soon in Bordeaux. I intended to explore the now, the past and the future, to, I believed, look at what we are crossed by, blood, water, spirituality, our lives. But it could be the reverse.

From the past, remains the traces, the imprints. The now is to be lived. We will, by May, come back to those tenses. I first want to address the future, the one I will attempt to capture in the Chateau Palmer vineyards, next week.
