My paintings are part of the "op art" (optical art) movement, exploiting visual perception, optical games and illusions.
Most often, they are abstract mosaics made up of more or less regular geometric plots. These colored and uniform patterns generally harbor peculiarities which make the paintings special.
I mainly work with acrylic, suitable for homogeneous solid colors, with rapid drying.

An analysis of my work was carried out by art critic Francis Parent (Artrinet).
