A frequent presence at marine aquarium and dive industry events, French artist Pascal Lecocq has departed from his usual whimsical compositions and offered his statement on the tragedy of Pterois spp. lionfishes spreading throughout the Caribbean and tropical Western Atlantic. CALLIGRAMME DE GRENOUILLE 30/ Calligram of Frog #30 by Pascal Lecocq. Click to enlarge. Known as “The Painter of Blue,” Pascal is best known for a painting called Corrida III depicting a scuba diver playing matador with Great White Shark. Here’s how the artist describes his approach to painting: Having always my head in the clouds, I\u2019m painting an imaginary universe between outer space and the depth of the oceans, a refuge to escape the contemporary reality, I offer too to my viewers. As it happens, the traditional oil painting is my best way to share my thoughts and I try to bring it to perfection since 35 years, just to be sure the viewer will focus on the subject, not the medium. I\u2019m increasing the layers of meaning (aesthetic, political, ecological, symbolic and allegorical), in an endless play (alliterations of words, shapes, numbers or letters) /building set (always using the Golden Ratio), not to confuse the issue or by intellectual arrogance, but on the contrary, to reach a greater majority of people able to understand the message. The transposition of the reality into an underwater world generates some humor, but hides more meanings. In addition, there\u2019s my willing to share some knowledge and to build a better word. I want a keen viewer creating its own story from the painting or seeking the occult meaning. Therein, by intellectual game, I\u2019m not sending a direct message, but a subtle one. I\u2019m a painter of imagination, Surrealist, but won\u2019t be surprised to be considered part of the Figuration Narrative. However, nobody yet cracks my Code, which will regard me as a Conceptual artist. More than considering the influences of Salvador Dali, The Mystic Lamb by Jan Van Eyck, Vermeer, The Isle of the Dead by B\u00f6cklin, think about the writings of a Georges Perec or the movies by Peter Greenaway. In fact, I\u2019m a Postmodern painter. Besides, I attended Jean- Fran\u00e7ois Lyotard\u2019s philosophical courses, the theoretician of the Postmodernism at the Coll\u00e8ge International de Philosophie (Paris 1986-7). Pascal Lecocq, Ph.D. His works are available as original paintings, prints, postcards and mugs at the Pascal Lecocq site and store. \u00a0He will be exhibiting in the Art Basel Miami starting this weekend.
