Eric Ruelland was born in Saint-Germain-En-Laye (France), he has Brittany origins. Paint is playing with chance. The chance of strokes of brushes which after all will create aspersions, defects, which are not defects but of substance, depth. It can also be intensified by inserting paper, sand or working with a knife. The color zones thus created will respond, balance or otherwise be unbalanced. This will connect a rectangle with a flat rectangle, a stroke, a notice. The inspiration lies in the beauty of the stones of Paris, in the golden limestone, worked by time, worn out, stained. It can also be the skies of Ile-de-France, Languedoc. But also the bark of trees, the lichen on rocks.
