Acrylic artworks (est. 2000)
I've literally copy and pasted the extract from my exhibition at the Alliance Française in Sydney Australia in 2002. I was 14yrs old at the time, I did not write this. It's a bit funny to read from my perspective now, because it's so old school art world~ish, which I am obviously not part of anymore.

---------------

AYMERIC was born in Sydney Australia on the 11th of December 1986. He is presently attending Year 9 at Killara High School.

For the previous two years he was educated at home with the “distance education” program. This was an extremely rewarding experience which gave Aymeric the opportunity to develop independently his own visual language away from trends and fads.  This independence spared him the temptation to conform to peer pressure. His great talent blossomed away from the distractions and the uninspiring demands of a “normal” school environment. It is worthwhile to observe here that ninety per cent of all the great European geniuses of the past, in music, literature, philosophy, art and science were in fact home educated.

As a consequence of this freedom Aymeric’s imagination, uninhibited and unhindered as it was, took him to territories unexplored by most children of his age. If this freedom opened new worlds for Aymeric, talent was the natural orienteering skill which took him successfully to wild and wonderful places. His talent enabled him to offer us the cohesive and convincing vision evident in this exhibition.

In any field of creative endeavour freedom without talent is like a fertile soil without water.  Aymeric has been blessed with both. But nothing would happen without hard work as any farmer knows. That is the key to it all. Picasso once defined genius as ninety per cent hard work. Aymeric has been gifted with a formidable and rare capacity for sustained, unrelenting hard work which is exceptional for a person his age.
As far as the final result of his efforts are concerned one can already detect maturity, mastery and originality way beyond Aymeric’s years.

One may of course associate Aymeric’s work to the realm of Surrealism but ultimately it stands on its own as the unique and authentic vision of a very talented young artist.
Considering Aymeric’s age the connection to Surrealism is as “fortuitous” as “the encounter of a sewing machine and a dromedary” as Andre Breton would have exquisitely concluded. Aymeric’s world is the world of the unconscious. The world of the unconscious being unrestricted by time, place and stifling rationality, the words of Breton are a most appropriate introduction for the first exhibition of a very exciting promising young artist.
