Artist Statement

The French physicist, Joseph Nicéphore Niepce, made the first negative on paper in 1816 and the first known photograph on metal that he called an heliograph in 1826. After 1826 there is no place for figurative art ! I am a french born self taught american artist with an eye open on the past (Nicolas de Stael) and the new South Western and South-American painters.

Still a cinéphile, I go to the films of Lang, Minnelli, Preminger, Delmer Daves, Godard, Truffaut time and time again.
