Final Art Work

Art is illusion

I have always been fascinated by the visual impact that comes from the works of the Masters; their paintings are magic, bringing you “elsewhere”, way past the simple surface of a canvas. I was trained very traditionally at “Les Beaux-Arts” in France, and spent my life studying and teaching art.

I understand that realism is not about the truth, but rather the illusion of the truth: paint strokes, along with a well thought palette will bring magic to the viewers, making them want to touch the illusion of a three dimensional object, wonder about the life-like vision of a portrait. It is the artist’s mission to make one look “again” at the marvels of our world, to make one stop and contemplate, think, dream and imagine.

I truly believe that art is not in the content, but rather in the delivery: an idea, a vision, just like a play for theatre, can be either boring or quite entertaining, revealing or even fascinating; it is all about how well ‘directed” the representation will be. I do not intend to shock, shake or upset anyone looking at my work, I do not seek stardom, I just share my visual interests and my passion for the arts.
