"I don't like to explain my paintings. I find the interaction between the viewer and the art piece more interesting. Leave some mystery that allows everyone to capture the image by putting a bit of self. We are now drunk of explicit, decorative, illustrative, informative image. The collective imagination overtaken the intimate imagination. This lithograph is a hymn to the personal and private world that makes each of us a unique being.
The back of the child, faceless, is the spectator. What does he see, look at? Free to each one to find out something special. I painted once in the street, in China on an austere door in the middle of a huge avenue of white walls. This is the idea of contrast that appeals me. The bright colors and rounded shapes of the child contrasted with the rigor of the place. The support portal also works with the idea of a door to another dimension. The lithograph treaty and its thin frame that overlaps the spray paint used on the original art piece, interested me and gives to this image some sweetness." Seth
