"Short Stories" Roger Camous


It is always a difficult task to use words for presenting any visual work, and moreover trying to explain his own paintings. However, if it might be helpful for our exhibition visitors, I would try in this brief text to give some explanations about the set of recent paintings I am presenting at Promo-Arte Gallery under the title of : "Short Stories".

In the daily life, a short story is an anecdote or a swift narration sketching a situation that quickly comes to its point. Oral story telling undoubtedly appeared in the first human societies to be cast later in tales, fables and parables. In literature a short story is a relatively small work of fiction usually in a narrative format less complex than a novel. Because of its shortness, a short story telling or writing has to focus on one single incident involving a small number of characters and the dramatic structure requires brevity and unity.

In a certain way, my paintings can be viewed as "short stories" in its common sense, because everyone of them are showing a specific moment in the course of a daily life action in order to communicate some aspects of the reality (or the fiction) I have in my mind. From the starting point, like a short story writer, my challenge as a painter is to communicate with lines and colors a specific story I have in mind as well as some of the related feelings tapped into my memory. I am generally sketching my first ideas and during this creative process, I deliberately introduce some other elements in the original narration. In a way, it is like looking at everyday life through a kind of magic lens enabled to distort the objective reality revealing the huge potential of its mysterious content. Furthermore, during the painting process I am trying to liberate my imagination
to interpret willingly my subject in a kind of free improvisation. Then, hopefully, the foreseen final result includes a certain degree of ambiguity or humor leading eventually the viewer mind for searching his own interpretation of the painting he is looking at. In certain case, the viewer interest can be aroused by discovering unexpected or suggestive content in what at first seems to be a common scene in ordinary day life. I have to admit it : I like Puzzles !

Because of my former studies and my professional career in the field of industrial esign, I am considering myself as an amateur painter and I like this status of "amateur" specially because of the freedom feeling coming with. On the other hand, I have been always interested in art history and contemporary art trends. Then, occasionally, when I have to explain some of my art works (like now...) I am challenging myself with humbleness to situate my work among the many art influences and art masters I am indebted for.

Recently, I found out that in someway my rather intuitive creative process presents some similarity with some features of the "Magic Realism" art movement that appears in Europe in the last century and continues to influence different modern art trends such as "Neo-Expressionism", "New Objectivity" or "Neo-Figurative Art". Magic Realism can be described as a kind of narration genre in which fabulous or fantastic events are included in the story that otherwise maintains the reliable aspects of the objective reality. Magic Realism is related to but distinctive from Surrealism because its focus is on material
objects or physical human beings rather than the psychological and subconscious reality explored by surrealism. Roots for the Magic Realism movement can be found in the Metaphysical art of Giorgio de Chirico and the Naive art of Henry Rousseau. The famous American painters Edward Hopper or Andrew Wyeth are also considered representative of this movement. It appears that all of those painters are ones of my favorites.

Naturally, I am admiring many other art masters who have, conscientiously or not, influenced my aesthetic style of painting. Then, I am sorry for those complicated and somehow confused ideas around this "short story" concept ... Anyway,

Enjoy you visit !
