Rites – Initiation 120 x 120
(liant, pousièrre de brique, pigments, acrylique)


Avant de toucher le pinceau, l’idéal serait de créer un état ordinaire, paisible, une fraîcheur, dénué de névroses, loin du combat des pensées et des peurs puis exprimer la vérité d’une situation sans hésitation, sans regret et sans doute.

seeing without words

When you take photographs, just before you click the shutter, your mind is empty and open, just seeing without words.

When you stand in front of a blank sheet of paper, about to make a painting or a calligraphy, you have no idea what you will do. Maybe you have some plan for a painting, or you know what symbol you want to calligraph, but you don’t actually know what will appear when you put brush to paper.

What you do out of trust in open mind will be fresh and spontaneous.

Opening to first thought is the way to begin any action properly.
