He makes sparkling even the tragedy…
[...] Claude Troxler is one of those creators
who often leaves me flabbergasted and admiring.
Such was my case, about twenty years ago, when
I saw the work of this beginner [...].
It is misleading, Troxler's nature : you deal
with a pleasant man, sympathetic and smiling
whose glance sparks with cordiality; but as
a painter he is anxious, feverish and completely
animated by a feeling of research, audacity
and renewal; at the same time dynamic, passionate
and yet thoughtful, Claude Troxler is worthy
of representing the adventurer in painting.
Set on ideas that he meditates and develops
[...], there he makes sparkling even the tragedy
so much he remains faithful to his rhythmical
shapes, to his harmony of transparencies, colours
of enamels posed with fluidity. His duality
shows up in the choice of his colours with a
natural simplicity, thanks to his disturbing
figurative style, made of movement, of light
and of enough audacity and singularity, and
apparent torture of the creator is metamorphosed
in poetry of gesture and of life.
