On a recent trip to Paris I was searching for the place where Kandinsky lived; nearby I found a banner of coloured triangles, blowing in the breeze. Kandinsky was a synaesthete, that is when he heard a sound he also experienced a colour, something that has always fascinated me when I look at his paintings. I choose to work with colours instead of sounds, but the work is just as much about music, its forms, themes and variations, transpositions, rhythms and repetitions.
Dissonance and harmony in the work of the musicains Schoenberg and Messiaen, as well as the painters Klee and Alechinsky, are subjects at the centre of my practice.

Sur un récent voyage à Paris, je cherchais l'endroit où Kandinsky a vécu; à proximité, j'ai trouvé une bannière de triangles colorés, soufflant dans la brise. Kandinsky était un synesthète, quand il a entendu un bruit, il a également connu une couleur, quelque chose qui m'a toujours fasciné quand je regarde ses peintures. Je choisis de travailler avec des couleurs au lieu de sons, mais le travail est tout autant sur la musique, ses formes, ses thèmes et variations, transpositions, des rythmes et répétitions.
Dissonance et l'harmonie dans le travail des musiciens Schoenberg et Messiaen, ainsi que les peintres Klee et Alechinsky, sont sujets au centre de ma pratique.
