Being trained in art history and practiced in art, I describe myself as an "artistorian": My research has essentially been a metaphysical one, although off-road, which means mostly outside of academia and without direct reference to the canon of Western philosophy or its history. I have integrated and used elements of Far-Eastern thought and practice (taoism, zen, yoga, meditation). My object of research was limited to a painting by Rembrandt in the Louvre erroneously titled "Philosophe en méditation". In fact, it represents the blind Tobit and his wife Anna waiting for the return of their son. By necessity, my research extended to Rembrandt's name and signatures. We are talking about a period of nearly forty years, in the course of which my art practice led me to update the Rembrandt painting in a process work using an installation and performance work: "OZONE STATION PROJECT (1993-2000)". This project enabled me to develop a 4-D model of the human mind, its meta-media (word, image, number), and in particular consciousness, which I consider as the "Ur-Medium". Working in various media made it possible to sidestep some of the pitfalls of thinking solely in terms of verbal concepts and discursive logic.
My life and work are based on a spontaneous "satori" experience made at the age of seventeen. It gave me the certainty of consciousness as the focus of experience.
