ARTHUR SECUNDA

 

ARCHITECTURAL, EXPRESSIONIST, EMOTIONAL, AND FORMALISTIC ALL AT ONCE, BRETON CREATES A NERVOUS SYSTEM OF ARTERIES IN HIS PAINTINGS, MIRACULOUSLY GENTLE AND THUNDEROUS IN THE SAME FORMAT.  

 

His white backgrounds are an arena where the duels and battles of the spirits assemble to defy gravity and expand light and energy.  There is no inhibiting the emotions in his passion-filled heart or in the linear expressions being born of his hand.

 

From mild to wild, unrestrained gestures flow quickly.  "POW!" - A statement of rhythms, loops and illusions integrates into an ensemble of primal depth and an emotional architectural setting - corresponding, in Breton's paintings, to sounds in music or meters in poetry, ringing sumpathetic chords of power and credability.  

 

Personal exuberance and a taste for zen are the secret ingredients of a gourmet painting cooked in the Breton cuisine, each dish to be shared as a visual drama or a special mystical treat by those fortunate enough and willing to experience the same cosmic wavelength, and shake spiritual hands with a contemporary magic eye.
