This mid-career artist hails from France but did some formative training locally at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.  Having received numerous accolades and awards, his work has been shown on Newbury Street at blue-chip galleries, as well as in museums including the Fuller and the Danforth.  As we begin 2012, we find the message of this work worth contemplating.  The image can be read so many different ways.  As we enter 2013, we wish everyone a year that is filled with peace and open to interpretation.
