I had to strive to adapt the chosen subject to the great charm of the work of the Master Painter, A. Besnard, but I must not forget that what I must create is also the handle of a weapon.Whether for parade or not, a weapon! I even believe that an Artist's sword is the most essential! While adapting to the Master Painter, I must also satisfy the daemon of my Art!
To be almost an armorer and remain the Architect of the handle of a tool for spiritual warfare. Truly, the theme is not easy.
Tough fencing, but one that is pleasant to me because of the friendship I have for the Master Painter and the high esteem I hold for all those around him. Please see, Madame, a whole foliage of homage at your feet, very cordially. English and Russian translations are available on request.
