Le tas bâché est ma Sainte-Victoire! Elle combine tous les sujets qui me tiennent à coeur comme le recouvrement, le pli, le chantier, la terre, l‘étouffement... motifs qui évoquent tous le travail de la forme, du réel et questionnent en définitive la surface et l’espace du tableau, du voir, du regard, de l’aveuglement, ces éléments constitutifs de toute représention en peinture de tableau.
