Georges Bahgory

"As the lips of the brush touch the surface on the canvas, a kiss is blown, and when you add color to the line, the palette cheers.

I stand a metre or two away from a new painting and enjoy the first dimension to the second, to the third, to the third and to the fourth.

I return the next day adding the harmony to find myself the painting's only onlooker and it takes me by surprise as if I have fogotten and ask myself 'who has drawn this and who has added the colours?'

I become its creator and its first onlooker and then I shout, so deeply, 'Bravo, I did it!'

This is my adventure from morning to night in a studio in Ivry, Paris. I start the painting after my morning coffee and it ends as the squeaking birds go back to their trees in the middle of the woods that surround me."
