The tale of the goldfish who thought he was a sardine 

Since 2012, a little goldfish has been surreptitiously appearing in my paintings, first on paper, then on silk and soon on linen canvases. I realized that each of his appearances in my works had a particular resonance with my professional and personal trajectory... from lawyer to painter.

So, intuitively, I came to write a story that retraced his route, which I entitled "The tale of the goldfish who thought he was a sardine".

More than a personal story, this tale should be understood more generally as the story of many people in today's society who, after a significant event (illness, professional or personal suffering...) decide to change their lives to return to themselves, to the essential... and end up revealing themselves to themselves.
