Cakes and Dogs

Ornamentation is fun. I think I have never seen any type of authentic ornamentation that was serious or dull .It always an expression of fantasy, enjoyment, poetry . It can also be a little weird.
Of course,when you work on commission somtimes you cannot let your imagination loosen up in your ornamental compositions...and make them fun .
When I create the collections I exhibit at Maison et Objet I am free to loosen up or even go crazy...
Here is what it looks loke when I have fun.

I picked up an old design, changed it , added stripes, pink flakes upon pink stripes and pasted in images of a recent historical movie...

"Cake" 89x146cm Oil and Casein on canvas

A mix of ornament by Berain and images of "Marie-Antoinette" by S.Coppola.

  1. So this is what you "going crazy" looks like! LOL! I still love the contrast of these . Those berries look so real, I want to eat them Pascal!

  2. It was a lot of fun playing with those carmines and pure vermillions ...I love subdued tones but also vivid , bright and powerful colors.
