The painting is grainy tarpaulin, canvas card. Map that by dint of traversing - stopping here and then there, at this climb, on this ridge - and of traversing again, with a brush or on foot, the painter has transformed into territory.

To have walked for a long time towards painting.

And tell about this hike, the slowness of each station. Walk on the hands, on the stilts of the brushes, in the secret joy of this disproportion between the first visible - the motif, Cézanne - and the second, there, in front of you, on the frame.

The path, the approach march, its tempo are there, right in front of the canvas, like a diffuse fog, doomed to blur the ultimate horizon of the peregrination. To delay its seizure. To contemplate is to wait. Leave that front which only belongs to hope. Quite the opposite of completing, closing, holding on.

The gaze is slow to "take stock" of this country, erect, as if standing. We must not finish: neither walk again, nor stop. No hanging from the painting that wants to unfold the duration in which it is painted. The gaze leans and imperceptibly sinks into the density of curves, furrows, limestone cliffs crisscrossed with ravines.

Fresco soaked in pigments.

My soles took hold earlier than my eyes on that slope prostrate under the stormy sky. Senesian crest whose spectrum of browns, chestnuts, beiges, from the darkest to the most sandy, which nourishes the whole Italian tempera, and which Pascal Lombard finds here, takes up, recites again. Does the painter's very name not evoke the Lombardy of Correggio?

Looking at these paintings, we suddenly understand: the painter is one of us. Discreet, attentive walker who stops before us who hadn't seen anything. The painter is one of us, his art is its transparency because he knows how to suspend decisions, not speaking for the brush or the canvas.

Pascal Lombard offers to the visible, this suspended moment, this tremor where earthly dullness crosses the aerial gesture of the represented.

Nativity of painting.

I want to lose myself in nature, to grow back with it, like it, to have the stubborn tones of rocks, the rational obstinacy of the mountain, the fluidity of the air, the heat of the sun. In a green, my whole brain will sink with the sappy flow of the tree.
