Explorer and artist, Pierre-Alex. leaves for months in the most remote countries of the world, raw, hard countries, where authenticity and a strong conviviality are (still) present.

"In my travels, I let myself be guided by my encounters, this proximity will allow me to better understand the way of life, but also the functioning of a country. By observing the world in which we live, ideas are jostled and I realize to what extent each civilization is an attempt, and exprimentation of life, with all its contradictions and its limits." P.-A.
 
It is about long expeditions in a wild nature, the crossing of small villages where the exchange with the man, the human being, the one who lives elsewhere and differently, makes sense. Pierre-Alex. restores in his works the atmospheres, the impressions felt during his travels. It is a testimony.
 
"I am a traveler, there are many subjects that touch me, I make photographs of them. I transpose these photographs on my paintings. I work my paintings as a composition, a heterogeneous set of materials inspired by these different atmospheres, raw, rough: the tinkering of life. I like this notion of constraint, not knowing, finding there, on the spot, what my works will be made of." P.-A.
 
Sheets, fences, pieces of wood, wires, engraving, acrylic, collages, pencilling, dripping... in a multitude of plastic proposals, the artist associates a rigorous work with very free techniques. One is there paradoxically in a very punctual abstract step.
