Patrick Oudin’s painting are full of dots , bog one small one , double one but they all combine in a fully orchestrated master piece of colours and shape that will sooth your eyes and should in a way only Picasso knew how to do .

Frederic Berjot and his ‘Laughing museum” body casting sculptures will certainly challenge your vision of the world for their raw aspect can either make you smile or cringe .
