CLAUDINE BELMAS-GREGOIRE

Painting on canvas: first and foremost, there is the obligation of the gesture, the impetus that propels me to deposit, connect, and build with colour.

The reality: a process of perpetual shift of colours, proportions, while taking the precaution of not touching one’s subject too closely.

There are incidences witch occur between the canvas and myself; encounters between those painted incidents and the eye of the viewer.

The imagination: the joy of living, the concrete for the expanse of things, and painting through what one sees, a little of what one thinks.

And also –

The Mythologie : inventing how one lives.

The Sciences: inventing how it works.

The Art: inventing how to say it.
