I discovered the work of Fornax on Facebook. Between biblical scenes and alchemic wanderings, I was seized by the atmosphere of the paintings. I find in them a rare capacity to go deep into our collective subconscious, revealing our feelings and our ideas. Some of the paintings are quite hermetic whereas others opens up on a common landscape. But all are on the edge of the spirit, where the imaginary flirts with the memory.

Visually, I love Fornax's paintings for their incredible texture. A mix of softness (Birds), silkiness (Pilgrimage...) and harshness (Mineral Canto). But moreover I like the contrast they show with the world that they depict. A multicoloured world peopled with inhuman forms that you are about to discover...
