A day at the school of the lantern in Evry, with the children of three classes, a beautiful initiative of CREARTOTHEQUE, cultural project carried in partnership by the National Education, the cultural service of the city of Evry-Courcouronnes and the ANAS (National Agency for Sacred Arts)

I would like to thank the organizers of this project and the children for this wonderful day spent in the classrooms of the ECOLE DE LA LANTERNE in Evry. Many thanks to Christelle Fageol, the school’s director, Anabelle Herin, the teacher of CE1, Cyrielle Lang and Gwenaelle Jacob, the teachers of CM1 and CM2 for their warm welcome. It was a day of pure joy and sharing with these curious and attentive children. After the presentation, and answering their many questions, often very pertinent, we moved on to the practical part. No imposed theme, no preparation, a single constraint, choose three colors and let your imagination do the rest! Take a look!

"An artist, in his work, leaves many codes, sometimes without realizing it. They are reflected in the coloring, architectonics, writing style and other features of the work. The author refers in his work to his environment, in which he bathed since his childhood, with its cultural and aesthetic particularities. The environment imposes an indelible mark on the work, controlling the artist's hand. The project "Codes of Color Trace" aims to explore the relationship between creativity and the artist’s environment. To study regularities, nuances and other distinctive features, following the example of contemporary national and international artistic practices. The project opens with an international exhibition presented by MoiKa 104 Gallery (St. Petersburg, Russia) and I-Gallery. Intelligence" (Paris, France @igallery.intelligence). The exhibition includes the works of contemporary French and Russian artists. By their example, they explore the particularities of their individual creative approach and the aesthetic and formal aspects."

Artists Sergey Kiselev and Victor Sirenko (Russia, St. Petersburg), IDKA (Ida Cohen - IDKA), Véronique Pagès, Bernard Jacques Brisson, David Twose

"This can be translated as: briefly about balance. In this case, it is about the balance between abstraction and realism in painting, in the work of four masters and in each picture taken separately. Their works were brought to St. Petersburg by the French I-Gallery. Intelligence. Each of the masters has a brilliant creative personality and they are united only by the ability to combine abstraction and figurative....

"...Bernard Jacques Brisson attracts with the psychedelic brilliance of the palette, the total absence of narrative beginning and the fragments of human bodies that suddenly appear against a background of abstraction. Ultimately, it is the person who is the starting point of any field of visual arts."

"Olga Khlopova, artistic director of I-Gallery. Intelligence, says that in modern France, abstract painting is an absolute favorite. And that's why it's especially interesting to see how the seeds of realism are working their way through time, through prejudice."

Do not try to explain: What's the point of fighting with someone bigger than you?
Imaginary universes :
Elusive imagination
Should you write ;
Painting is not a pocket
That you can turn over as you please.
It plays on the inner/outer dialectic
Abstraction does not an end conceptualization;
On the contrary, it ritualizes it.
I see here a cosmic ritual:
It is necessary to go beyond the physical glance
And even surpass the imaginary ;
To reach where ?
With a consummate mastery
Bernard Jacques Brisson diverts you from his object;
It pulls you to hue and cry,
Not in a color explosion
As you would have thought at first sight
But in a refraction of the light
Like the stained glass windows of a cathedral.
There, I begin to feel what makes its greatness:
All is revealed
And nothing is revealed;
Here I am: Bernard-Jacques Brisson
Is a dialectician of breathing.
I prepare myself, I go into apnea,
I take him in my arms, he takes me in his arms.
He waiter for me to enter the invisible with him,
In the ultra-violet which constitutes his intimate domain.
You have to squint you eyes to discover the tiny characters
Hidden in his paintings
Like so many dwarf stars!

Beware: he stubbornly seeks to divert your thought
From focus on a specific point,
To abstract you, to let you carry,
To take off your clothes,
To appear naked:
For what purpose?
You can see there aren’t any
Miro had a little too boldly asserted
"Destroying the painting".
Picasso "what was left to do".
Bernard Jacques Brisson talks about creative energy,
Beneficial, open.
His paintings flow in a succession of traces
Which appear and disappear
Without seeming intimidated
By the game of gravity.
His art belongs only to himself:
It emerges where it was not expected,
Forgetful even of oblivion:
There remains the joy to have traversed so singular work,
Knowing that he managed to make us his accomplice,
Which is not an easy task in graphic matters,
Like when you come back from visiting the crater of a volcano
The mouth still filled with the tawny color
Rivers of lava.
Its lava: a banner!
