From Craighead-Green Gallery:
“Déjà Vu: speaks to the past revisited, introducing this part of ambiguity specific to this feeling, so disturbing and moving.
To take an example, the Rialto is a large painting that I created in homage to Canaletto who executed some breathtaking versions of it. In most of his depictions of the Rialto Bridge, traffic on the Grand Canal is abundantly present, one can almost hear the intense activity. In my painting, the scene is nocturnal, almost silent, the sky is black, the traffic is light. A garland of tourists reminds us that we are in the present time. Nevertheless, we are lost in Venetian timelessness.
In my interior scenes in which the castle of Vaux le Vicomte is in the spotlight, you have the feeling that it is the castle of Versailles, but for your eyes only, far from the hordes of tourists. The fact is that Vaux le Vicomte prefigures Versailles by 20 years. In these intimate corners flooded with harsh light, you are literally transported to the heart of the 17th century in France, without knowing exactly where you are.”
