Biography
After a sabbatical year spent to take Art courses at the School of Images in Epinal (France), Dominique starts exhibiting oil and acrylic on canvas, then etchings. He also travels a lot and in 1994 he goes to the USA to teach French and Philosophy in an international school. Gradually, he specializes in landscapes made with relief printing techniques and watercolors but he keeps using photography as a visual travel log. His works do not describe particular places but the ideas related to them. They can be found in private and public collections in France, the USA, Canada, England, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Brazil, Japan, and in various galleries in France and the USA.

Statement

I never work on the spot; on the spot, I take photographs, I sense the colors, the surroundings, the sounds, and it is only later and far away that I can use what I have seen. I need to keep a distance between the subject and me to be able to grasp its core meaning and in this respect, I agree with Zen painting techniques - meditate in front of a landscape and then draw it by heart - In any case, I want to express a memory more than reproduce a detailed scenery, be it in my prints, my photos, or my stories.
