About five years ago I made an about-face in my approach to painting. I turned from oils and realism to acrylics and abstraction. The beginning of the 21st century is marked by flux — a change in energy — as observed in climate change, massive migrations, politics… as well as advances in quantum physics, quantum biology and cosmology. I wanted to be a part of this new kind of energy, to let go of my old approach and explore new territory and new materials.
