Henri Goetz, 1 February 1981

It is reassuring to think that he can still be a healthy paint, natural, without false problems. An instinctive painting, sufficiently sure of its means to talk a direct language: a painting that reaches us without we felt the need to locate or find him a relationship. Philippe Charpentier of the tables are needed by themselves. They have a healthy breathing, they are muscular without being aggressive, open the eyes without the request, but retain it as a familiar landscape that we discover for the first time. They invite us, like nature, to let us invade. Great beaches frank but sensitive colors accompany as actual elements that cities or fields, even almost more real because they owe their existence only to reports tones, animated by a strong desire, so that would want to consider in themselves. Forces of nature, but of a strong nature, these works speak a language without artifice, based on the intrinsic properties of their pictorial matter. Where is the painting of Philippe Charpentier ? It will not take winding paths. Each table is enriched, spawning new opportunities, discover other forms, relying only on himself. I'm sure its sound approach will remain that of the real painting, fueled by instinct and by a vision is digging deep into its own nature.
