After the 2003 Homo Sapiens Spinassien exhibition where I performed all the reproductions (paintings and sculptures), I decided to cross the step and become a painter.
My daughter was five years old, my son was about two and my wife was often away on a mission abroad because of her job. My choice was a compromise that allowed me to be always there for my kids.
Once upon a time, a Dragon and a Princess whose eyes color included all the colors of the world except the red.
When we asked people who crossed this Princess about the color of her eyes, none of them had noticed the nuances and this combination of warm and cold colors. May be only the Dragon was able to see it !
Ink is a world I like to share. It's an invitation to travel among forms, strokes, gradations, curves and simplicity. You need to have a passion for Chinese calligraphic brushes to use them. A Chinese or a Japanese calligraphic brush is a noble and savage tool that, with time, shares one by one its secrets. Sumi-e (sumie), a Japanese term, is the Art of ink. I prefer to say it is the way of simplicity and poetry.
I propose to you, with this paper, to travel among 14 inks I painted in 2009-2010.
Here are four Sumie I painted playing with ancient Chinese characters : Mother and Child.
The oldest ones come from the Great Seal script, before the unification of China by Qin Shi Huang (221 BC).
These four Sumie have been exhibited in 2011. The exhibition's topic was Women and Chinese Characters. If you want to see the other inks of this exhibition after reading this paper, just click and go on "Avaible Inks"section, few ones are still avaible.
Now, let's have a look on this storyboard.
