Surrealism - 2015


"Peinture reflétant bien l'évolution de mon œuvre avec ici une approche plus profonde car auparavant seuls mes bâtiments transparaissaient, et ici le train prend part de cette légèreté et ouvre l'horizon sur un monde beaucoup plus profond. Le pôle de signalisation est un élément qui éternise mon voyage en train cet hiver en Suède. Le chien symbole éternel de fidélité et d'affection , trouve sa place ici sur le quai et non dans le décor, étant à peine arrivé. La femme elle fait partie de ce rêve d'amour et de grandeur qui est l'essence de mon inspiration et de ma vie. La lune nous rappelle notre place dans l'univers et notre connexion avec le cosmos. Un monde de rêve où l'illusion nous est dévoilée et où l'impermanence y trouve toute sa grandeur. Car c'est bien un Orient Express qui m'envole dans un monde d'espoir, de douceur et d'amour. Je suis bien en route dans la réalisation de mes rêves, de mon rêve. Yes yes it's Four Ten for sure !"

Was it just a Magnificient Dream?

"Here we are, new start, new Life. So there I stand on the balcony of my studio looking further than reality. A very Horta door coz yes this is Belgian Surrealism. Now, I have not only put my favorite hat but also I dressed up for the occasion, the 4th of March, is my Indenpendence Day . A Parrot is enjoying the cool breeze of its freedom, is a reminder of my tropical life. Obviously there are some women there on my painting and this could be the mystery of my tomorrow, as Marjorie said quite well, the Lady I on the right of the painting is watching the horizon in hope to see her Love coming and the thing is... That same guy could really well be waiting on his side of the ocean for her to come into his Life... Well Well Love is not always easy, surely not impossible but complicate, sometimes. Which makes all the richness of this beautiful Romance. And another Lady is wandering by the side of the train but who knows who that might be?? Might even be the same woman at a different time of the story. Laly Blue, always fidel, ready to jump in my train, coz Yes I am going for it, crossing that arch of the day and deepen myself into that beautiful tomorrow. Vanille, center of my Life, softly growing under that blue sky of my Love . Some numbers here and there, of course, they mean a lot to me. Et pour faire plaisir à Jean-Luc, ce sont bien des rails Vignoles attachés aux traverses par des tirefonds à tête carrée.. Isn't that nice ?!"

C'est bien dans mon atelier que ca se passe, c'est au premier étage, c'est de là qu'on s'envole. Vanille qui elle aussi prend gout au rêve et à la création, y séjourne avec moi pendant mes heures de boulot, assise sur son bloc de Légo, elle pense déjà à ce qu'elle va créer.... "It's better to create your own world Papa", me dit t'elle, " but you got to do it with Style Papa" .... Hahahahhah quel petit ange qui illumine mes journées, alors nous voila tous les deux dans mon atelier à Rêver, sa présence est un bonheur et ma peinture sa plénitude...elle rêve de liberté, d'aller la nuit ouvrir la cage des voisins pour libérer les oiseaux qui y sont .. On rêve d'un monde où l'animal serait égal à nous et serait libre, sans peur aucune de nous côtoyer, de partager de l' amour et de la compassion ...On y rêve de voyage, on en parle, on fait des plans, ahhh Rengsjö et Hannah, la mer, les vacances, la gare de Wassy aussi, Umeå, le grand Nord, les aurores boréales..... Car nous deux on va voyager.. hahaha on voyage déjà ! On rêve on rêve, on rêve d'amour aussi, et de la beauté de la Vie Mais..on pourrait se demander où je suis, je suis peut être en train de nager, avec Laly Blue Superstar, hahahhaa non non, c'est mon atelier et je suis très probablement en train de peindre, coz I Love It...!!!! Happiness all the way, and Love is All what You need !

Interesting approach of blending a train station within a house living room, mainly traveling from our sofa, this is when I think of my paintings and start traveling in place where animals are blue and are happily part our my life, reflecting my compassion and openness..a door opens further to a deeper landscape while the first floor features a boat railing here again teasing a different kind of travel.

C'est bien notre chère petite gare de Lasne, un monument en soi, cachée dans un recoin,une marque dans le temps, ahhh que de souvenirs, quand je rentrais de l'école, on remontait à pied par le chemin derrière dans le bois.. Une gare d'une telle beauté.. abandonnée et voila que le monde moderne en fait main basse , Ah Mon Dieu ! toutes ces belles choses qui disparaissent lentement avec le temps, l'emprise du greed et de l'évolution de notre monde.. On y voit l'église dans les reflets des fenêtres, quelques arbres , tout ça ne sera peut être un jour plus qu'un reflet de ce qui était..Que restera t il pour nos enfants? À part des contes et des souvenirs à raconter, on leur dira qu'il y avait des girafes, des rhinocéros blancs, des bruns, des gris, et même un bleu ! On leur dira que notre petit village était si paisible, avec son église, son boulanger et le drugstore..Tout ça disparait, transparait, s’efface avec le vent du temps Avant d'éteindre la lumière on commencera par "Il était une fois" . on leur parlera de l'étang de Renipont qui n'est plus plage, sans son toboggan et ses transats d'été... On regardera la Terre en se disant que elle aussi est en danger et on racontera à nos petits enfants ce qui fut la beauté de ce monde que nous n'avons pas sauvé...

It has not been an easy one in the begining and I realized later that it had a lot to do with my actual situation. It has been quite a difficult time since the separation and this probably explains why I struggled to put the pieces together here. But it all came in place, and I can see much clearer here. Obviously Vanille's mother has taken another direction in Life, a more down to earth, back to her roots, where she believes she will fit better. And I wish her all the very best of Happiness. Different levels of our lives here, with the present being that train, within an Horta staircase, my Delightful Belgian Roots, some suitcases there on the plateform as it is a journey but also, I will be able to travel more, yeaaah, I missed it ! Holding Vanille's hand in those confusing times for our little Princess, I do take very much care of her, and taking her to the beach to have some real fun too..good to be on the tropics ! Taking care of Vanille and painting have been my 2 main focuses, clearly reflected here, and even in the struggle, I keep my humor, with the girafa popping out of that train, showing me signs of happiness. Laly Blue Superstar , came to my house often, so I gave her food and Love and she always asked me, begged me, to follow her outside. I thought she wanted me to come along to pass that band of Local Boys hanging along the street so I walked her pass them, and turn around, but laly was also turning around back to my house and started asking me to follow her again. I realized recently that she actually asks me to follow her back to our previous house, (where Vanille's mother still lives) and may be asking me to come "home" and live with them again... Poor Lovely Dog of my heart has also been confused by the separation and wishes to see a family back together as before.This is probably why she finds herself in the middle of the two of us, on the middle floor. I still have things to settle and organize, but for sure, I'll prepare a nice spot for Laly to come and live with me.. I miss her and those 2 weeks when Vanille is at her mothers' are very Lonely and I would really appreciate Laly's presence. Now the Moon has been, strangely enough, cut in two with the speed of that train, quelque peu décoiffée elle aussi, a symbol that I haven't truly looked into and understood yet but everything is now getting into place and I should be standing on firm ground very soon. And ...Vanille wants to have her own bedroom on the first floor, and somehow, she is allowing me to set a new step in my next life, opening a space and opportunity for someone, sometimes in the future to come and live with me/us. Thanks to the support of my family, to some very precious friends, and the confidence in my work shown by new contacts allowing me to truly believe in myself and in Life and it feels good. Yeeaaaah it feels very good !!! Good to have come around this one, and to understand the message being given to me. Trust Life, Love is All So let's Rock& Roll Baby !

First approach of New-York city with this amazingly beautiful cathedral, Manhattan being an island, I push the water a bit inside the street to reflect to challenge of climate change we are facing, a blue dog with a camera for the tourism so dense in NYC and a blue giraffe for the pleasure of freedom and fantasy.
