BOULLET Alain, painting, sculpture, permanent artist of Galerie Capazza since 1989

Conceived at night, in the dominant flame of the bushes, polished with caresses and ashes until the final wax soothes the scars of burned clay, these ovoid women and embraced couples remind us that only art can ensure the continued existence of desire.


Something is going to happen, no doubt… This work, made from tenderness and restraint, is a constant welcome gesture. At this particular moment, changing as the dawn’s sunshines, Alain Boullet is setting the exquisite moment when things come to human being. Poet of emergence, he allows you to witness the simplest wonder: the birth of art.
