Greating from Los Angeles
Last October I was very lucky to do a three week long art residency in Los Angeles with Kitty Maryatt from Two Hands Press.

I have been using stencils for a long time, first on walls and wood panels, and a few years later on paper. I got interested in Pochoir (traditional French stencil) when working on my first solo show Voyage in 2015. From the very scarce resources available about the technique, I created an hybrid modernised version which I have been using ever since.

Stencils were very popular in Europe and in particular in Paris during the first half of the 20th century before they slowly disappeared in favour of more modern and less labour intensive techniques, like silkscreen printing and modern offset printing. They were used to colour fashion illustrations in magazines, architecture portfolios, wallpaper catalogues...etc These were coloured page by page using hand cut metal stencils, applying each colour with a big brush, one after the other… At a time where art publications were mostly printed in black and white, the vivacity of gouache permitted vibrant reproductions of paintings from the likes of Joan Miró or Sonia Delaunay. A few artist books, like Henri Matisse’s master piece Jazz published in 1947, were even entirely printed with pochoir (except the text) in order to closely reproduce the original paper cuts.

So, when the opportunity arose to learn the traditional way to print with stencils, which only a handful of people still master, I jumped on it ! Learning this traditional process has taught me new ways of working and I will continue to develop this printed body of work in the next few months. And perhaps I can also play a small role in helping to safeguard and usher this very special skill into the future.

I had a wonderful time in California, learning, visiting artists I admire, meeting with old friends (and new ones), collectors and galleries. It was also truly special to experience the solar eclipse which inspired Ring of Fire the lamp collaboration I presented with CPRV last summer, now as a pochoir print in an edition of 5.

As always, feel free to drop me a line !

Over the Summer
I hope you had a good summer break, I have been busy working on a new website which should be nicer and faster to navigate, even on mobile !

Over the last few months I have been revisiting my pochoir technique, changing some things to allow more multiples. Leaving the shore is a new pochoir inspired by a boat trip, which I just added to the shop.

I was also lucky to show two paintings in group shows this summer: Twin Lakes for 16x20 at Harman Project (New York) and a new piece inspired by my beloved Coco at Hashimoto Contemporary (Los Angeles), For the love of Dogs is open till the 9th of September.

Earlier this year I created New Horizon for the cover of Sphere magazine, channelling the glamorous lifestyle of sailing in the Mediterranean, with its characteristic sharp light and a dose of adventure

And finally I was delighted to collaborate with my friends at CPRV on a unique lamp Ring of Fire displayed at Art-o-rama Contemporary Art Fair in Marseille.

As always, feel free to drop me a line !

Speak Soon,

Ring of Fire, 35 x 54 x 19 cm in collaboration with CPRV

Ring of Fire is playing with the universal representation of light and with the change of state that the lamp provides (ON / OFF). During the daytime the lamp is OFF, the room is lit with natural light which is symbolised by a warm orange solar disk. When switched ON there is a modification of the light direction, quality and atmosphere. In the natural world similar phenomena also exist with eclipses, in particular annular eclipses which occurs when the moon blocks out the center of the sun, leaving a glowing ring called “Ring of Fire”. The switch commands the eclipse, obscuring the sun and revealing the Ring of Fire.
