Artist's description:

"Paris Gargoyle Contemplation" is a textural impressionist stylized cityscape impasto palette knife oil painting on stretched canvas 20 X 20 cm (8 x 8 inches).

This painting captures Paris rooftops and the river Seine seen from the Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral towers. In the foreground, the protective eyes of a goat-shaped gargoyle contemplating this apocalyptic view...

I was inspired to paint this scene during my last visit in Paris, when I climbed to the towers of Notre Dame de Paris. A very impressive and inspired experience.

Signed on the front, accompanied by a signed Certificate of Authenticity.

I have always loved to approach my urban paintings in a myriad of ways. I enjoy stylizing architectural forms in various manners. This has always been one of my goals, even a preoccupation from the time I was studying at the school of architecture until the present. The versatility of oil paint along with my prototypic work with palette knives allows me to play with the urban forms abstracting the city in an unconstrained manner.
