Where everything begins
Painting from life, while keeping time with my model, is a process of discovery. When my brain no longer imposes it’s false ideas and conjectures onto my perception, only then can I note down what my eyes are unconsciously able to see. However long it might take me, painting and repainting what I am looking at, the moment when I start to see clearly is always the turning point in the painting - the place where everything begins. This exhibition shows several paintings I have made and remade with a number of models over the last four years in my studio in Paris.
