Knows how a couple of lines, followed by running to his eyes, ask aesthetics, mood and even a small plot. Stroke of a digital pen, fine lines with thick, the strokes, fast and fleeting movements make them a light silhouette, the calligraphic arabesque, unmatched ease and subtlety.
Interview with Francois Dubeau:
What do you want to express their works?
My current work is born of unbridled enthusiasm and creative energy of movement, which often occurs mostly in sketches. In addition, the fascination of the viewer, exploring drawing, mentally fills in the gaps digging in its subjectivity.
What artists inspire you?
I admire the works of artists in very different styles: Bruno, Jean-Paul Riopelle, Amedeo Modigliani, Mondrian, Kandinsky. What really winds me is the thumbnails. Much more than a finished work. I love the spontaneity of the lines, gestures - all this we find in the sketch.
How did you come to the use of digital pen and tablet?
I have long worked with pen and ink, was never fully satisfied with the end result. Ink can be very cruel: one mistake and it's over. Thus, we must at all times to monitor and restrain themselves so as not to spoil the picture, on which I work. Creating a digital pen and tablet was a revelation to me! It took me two years to learn how to use this new tool, but now I can not imagine how to work without. Each drawing begins with a random stroke of the pen to be the spark that give meaning to all the graphic composition.
The final version will be only the bare line. All other elements are discarded, even color. All that's left is the black lines and white background. Using a graphics tablet has made me free, freed from the fear of making mistakes. I can freely use the obsession of perfection, freely explore the immensity of the movement. I own capture fleeting moments of the sketch, moving and unexpected lines that would have been erased during the "scheduled delivery", in preparation for the final work.
For the more active involvement of the spectator in his drawings, I leave a lot of open space, ambiguity. I turn myself in, to give meaning to the picture. Each of them involves a balance between the visible and invisible, definite and indefinite, black and white.
Recorded in December 2006
