For the “Whites”, as Olivier Mérijon entitled his series of white paintings, are made of a multitude of rhythms, ways, lines, breaks, reliefs, curves and oblique lines that capture, keep in or reflect the light of white.


Painting in white means that the complementary colour of white is white. I work on white and replace the colour touch by the vibration of the light born from rhythms.
