I am pleased to announce my participation in the Artsida 8 auction, as a new and unique artwork on paper of mine, titled "Devenir Immortel", will be auctioned on Sunday March 11th at Place des Arts' Salon Urbain.

Having worked in recent months on new types of work, I am particularly thrilled to finally unveil and offer you a first glimpse of my brand new series... on paper!

The unique texture of this artwork was shaped by applying several layers of walnut oil paint on Arches paper with a painting knife, and carved to form a series of small parallel vertical slats covering all of its surface, similar to furrows of vinyl records.
