I have been painting and drawing since childhood. But it’s especially since 2009 that I started painting on canvas and acrylic.
I realize essentially abstract paintings. Poetic, colorful, large formats in a desire to illuminate a room, to bring something more positive, pleasant to look, warm.
Sometimes very geometric, Cartesian, almost mathematical paintings. Those who love my artworks are attracted by things that are well defined, well ordered, clean, clear, rigorous and solid. Tables are well proportioned. Logical. Without skidding.
Also warm representations, round, sweet, colorful; sometimes quite sparse with a proper central element. More intuitive. On these paintings there are slippages, transgressions. We are no longer in rigid and perfect proportion. It is necessary to feel there the fire, the energy put to their realization and to feel the rhythm, the force, the power contained in the representation of these controlled or uncontrolled movements. But in these paintings, sometimes, we are rather on poetic achievements, appeasement and fulfillment.
Artist influenced by contemporary art and tawny movement for its colors. Basquiat, N. de Stael, Vlaminck. Philippe does graphic work using acrylic on canvas. His pictorial work is a sort of summary of the perception of the world that comes from it, in the form of a synthesis of heterogeneous influences : the Japanese tradition of ukiyo-e, baroque music and probably Hayao’s universe. Miyazaki … among others.
This work must be considered for what it is: an incomplete and inconsistent view of an ephemeral moment. Philippe directs his pictorial research on color and light by transcribing his imagination and the colorful intensity emitted by the screens that surround us constantly. It is in the footsteps of the Surrealists. His paintings take us into an enigmatic world on the edge of loneliness. A world where the dialogue between the body and the soul becomes more perceptible…
This affirmed design, in the neighborhood of organic sculpture, and these amazing colors excite our imagination.
It is thanks to this personal writing that Philippe manages to transport us to a surprising poetry of the soul. This is the unique intensity of his painting.
