les Whites

photo J.Postel

 

White paintings give their lasting quality to O. Merijon's work.


"Les whites" come into being and live through their capacity to react to the light

 

which establishes itself in the substance of the painting.

 

The painter guides this incomparable colour-light by giving it texture.


He makes use of light as if it were a new colour,

 

not out of the tube nor one which is placed in an exact position,

 

one which prevails, and makes use of it without possessing it.

 

 

 

WHITE 275

 

 

White is the measure of a colour

not its imprint

 

It is necessary

to be a colourist

and to employ one's energy

to the utmost.

 

White is inaccessible;

it reveals itself

but is beyond our grasp.

 

 WHITE LEHON

 

To paint in white is to consider

that the complementary colour

of white is white.

I work in white and replace

the note of colour

with the vibration of light

emanating from the tonalities.

 

Light is an abstract and logical notion in painting.
A natural element in the intimacy of coloured paintings,
in 'whites' it combines with the unique qualities of daylight
borrowing its infinite movement and inducing subtle tonalities
