“I have found something that is unique to my own in a series I call ‘Le tourbillon de la vie’. It is akin to abstract expressionism, filled with emotions that touch the human condition of struggle, elation, love and resentment. It represents my inner desires and fears head-on, leaving nothing to question.”

Le tourbillon de la vie

After an unsettling few months during recovery from a dog bite and drawing only on paper and smaller works, I finally came back to painting onto a large canvas. Drawing upon the work from Ode to New York, the paintings that surfaced became a mixture of bold and thick brushstrokes combined with drip marks. The title is Le tourbillon de la vie, which translates to the whirlwind of life, describes perfectly the way I am feeling.
