( as proposed by Mme Dominique LE MAGOAROU - President delegate - FRANCE).
After a long carreer spent overseas, I have dedicated myself to a hobby I had been impatient for so long to practice : painting. All along my travels, I took thousands of photographs with the idea to use them some day as a source for the subjects of my paintings to come. Some examples of this work are presented inside the galleries in this website.
At a certain point, an accidental encounter with an artist in Rennes opened a new horizon : the reproduction of works painted by Masters whom we both loved. This adventure started with Modigliani who seemed rather neglected at that time, it continued with Berthe Morisot, Manet, Gauguin, Van Gogh and Caillebotte to whom we dedicated an exclusive website : www.gustave-caillebotte.fr . I personnally continue working on copies on a regular basis, as I consider this to be a useful, though demanding, training. The result of these efforts, and of those of my friend and partner Jonte Tychman, can be seen on my other website www.art-katroz.com which exclusively shows copies (Jonte also occasionally presents his personal works on the present website).
Later, we welcomed in our group a talented smith artist, Laëtitia Laviéville, whose works are presented in the gallery recently launched on this website.
As for me, I at times also paint with the palette knife, which results in a very different range of paintings, bursting in bright colours and generous in thickness : some of them are also presented in the present galleries.
I am not painting on an "industrial" scale because I paint only for my pleasure. Nevertheless, as time goes on, the paintings are accumulating and that's the reason why I am presenting them here. These paintings are therefore available (with the exception of most of the portraits) to anyone who can benefit from them, including private individuals, businesses, hotels and restaurants, professional decorators, cinema and TV industry, libraries, schools, publishers, cultural centers, public and private exhibits and other special events.
