MURIEL’S ARTIST STATEMENT
Time for maturity, a lot of work for the technical mastery – what does a painter need tofinally find themselves?
An understanding that there is no other inspiration source
than their own feelings – the deepest – the most secret.
My work has changed, slowly, naturally – this was done, as it should be:
more and more simplified, almost abstract, but supported by new technical searches always,
technical which is essential to develop one’s own expression.
Express only one’s self, not being the pale reflect of some one else,
regardless of what the fashion is, about me, the only way to have a sincere and singular painting.
I have painted in this frame of mind for a long time, without concessions and with passion.
Membre de la SFA, Société Française de l'aquarelle
