J’ai frappé à la porte de ma conscience, le souffle avait tout emporté avec lui laissant le vide et seulement une parti de mon inconscient…

Artist Statement

Adlane Samet defines himself as a painter of instinctive moments. His art (painting and drawing) shows affinities with the free figuration and Art Brut movements. Structured by an incisive, sometimes sensitive but at other times aggressive stroke, Adlane paints in acrylics but makes room for the purity of the medium with its transparency and  bright colors variations. He has borrowed heavily from children’s composition and graphic gesture to develop a new visual language, which breaks off with the exhausted codes of academic realism.

Adlane Samet conceives his painting as free and spontaneous where gesture is beyond thought. With a sense of poetry and mystery, he offers to accompany us in his own universe.

“Je vois mon travail comme une sorte de néon, où se conjugue mon esprit et le reste du monde parallèle, un monde fait d’imaginaire et de rêve et aussi un monde de mythe où les anges et les démons bataillent pour la sérénité de l’âme, cette âme d’enfant que j’essaye de retrouver, une âme perdu seule dans les décombres du chaos. Je peins des états d’âme.

Au fur et à mesure de l’avancement d’une peinture, un dialogue se crée entre la toile et moi, un dialogue où la peinture m’interroge me questionne sur le monde, un monde malade qui à besoin de guérir, cette maladie est contagieuse construite sur des faits réels de notre société actuelle. Une réponse était impérative, elle fut brutale et spontanée, d’une gestuelle tremblante donnant un nouveau souffle, aiguisée et tranchant, le geste avait dépassé la pensée.
J’ai frappé à la porte de ma conscience, le souffle avait tout emporté avec lui laissant le vide et seulement une parti de mon inconscient…
-il y a quelqu’un ?
J’ai jeté un coup d’œil à mon cerveau puis à mon esprit, je n’ai trouvé personne.”

Adlane Samet
