My father’s drawing is a diagram and contains an inherent logic that I cannot decipher. I think it is beautiful but crazy as well, obsessive. My painting ‘Les Beaux Arts’ developed from the desire to use my father’s drawing and to make something new, a new map on a surface referring to the architect’s board with tracing paper, tape, labels. But I have moved from the logic of an architect to the logic of an artist, or to put things differently, from the logic the adult’s urban planning to the reveries and play of children.
