Hear the word of the Lord spoken... I speak, in the beginning was the Word, and the word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. And a word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver. The words I speak they are spirit and they are life (John 1:1,10, Proverbs 25:11 and John 6:63 KJV). I have had the awesome opportunity to learn from, enjoy and have been moved by such artist as: Vasily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Grant Wood, Esward Hopper, Jean Honre Fragonard, Gustave Caillebotte, Pierre Auguse Renior, Jackson Pollack...< Less

Sur la ligne qui mène de la vie à la mort, une femme, comme une évidence, m’a imposé de descendre à la station Enfer et j’ai vu vaciller tout ce qui ressemble de près comme de loin à la paix. Le fil me retenant à l’univers avait cédé. Mon imaginaire réveillait les écorchés de Fragonard, un boeuf rougeoyant de Rembrandt, des soldats de Gromaire. La lune et le soleil jouaient un requiem sur le clavier de l’insupportable, puis ce fut l’obscurité de la nuit. D’innombrables pièges guettent ceux qui arrivent mal armés. La femme oiseau de mes rêves me viendra-t-elle en aide ? M’emportera-t-elle sur un rayon céleste ? Plus de plaies, plus de pleurs, juste la poussière du cosmos comme vecteur du destin.< Less
