Show, hide, suggest, drape! The fabric has been the playmate of
Claude Le Boul for many years now. Whether the object or the subject, it is also on the purely technical and material aspect where the fabric has become rags
which Claude Le Boul uses to wipe his brushes, his palette, his fingers...
The excess material that will never "paint"; yet, one day Claude Le Boul looks at the rich findings of this pictorial material: it was still painting in his eyes! Knowing that he will return with the idea and that one day he will find the way, for more than twenty years, Claude Le Boul kept preciously these rags, classed by harmony of colors, materials, and stains.
Through all these years that passed, Claude Le Boul wanted to "talk" of "time", "memory", and people that he loved, he loves, who are dear to him! It seemed to him as evidence that it was time to give life to his rags, they would finally find their rightful place; ones who were responsible, fed all this time, all this memory. He had to hold onto the canvas now all these spots as benevolent ghosts of his art story.
Faces have emerged gradually as memories, in fragments more or less precise, and finally Claude Le Boul could enter words to his paintings, words of love that each of us can say or write... These words appear and disappear imprecise, just like a fragile memory.
