It is Halloween, and everyone is ready - suspicious children wait for the moment for their attack.

In my atelier, I find myself consumed by the idea of knowing that this celebration is more than 3000 years old and that these Iron Age peoples called The Celts celebrated the end of summer on October 31, believing that the dead came out of their graves as zombies.

I capture this Indo-European culture on my canvas, with turquoise and ruby reds. I make public its avant-garde in colors, its mythology loaded with symbolism, heroism, and arrogance.
