First of all figurative, Aldéhy is an advocate of light that winks at Philippe de Champaigne.
Subjects are numerous and eclectic but this obvious diversity is complementary. The drawing is well built and detailed.
We discover an exceptional set of portraits ” Cathedrals of Lights” fourteen moments of a child’s day. With particular acuity, the artist captures the fleeting time of life.
With an asserted technique, the artist delivers an artificial lighting, sometimes violent that stops motions. The intimacy is captured in full intensity, translating an emotion or a smile.
Aldéhy knows how to give value to the expression, by plunging a part of the canvas into a light/dark contrast.
Master of lights with a bright painting, with delicacy in the tinge, subtle games of reflection, the artist reveals the illusion in the prospective space.
From his meetings with his favourite patterns, the painter offers us as many images distinguished by a seal of a soften realism but through an objective look.
If the enthusiasm dœs not always appear in the compositions, this is the first emotion that succeeds to the long term thought, an interrogation on the subject, that he wants to restore the truth until lingering to define a graduated tinge of outlines of a well-known face.
An accurate drawing raised with authority, the narrative force.
With a huge palette and a rigorous application nothing gets away from the shrewd observation.
Most of the time the artist uses acrylic but sometimes gets oil and pencil …
Strangely, the artist is not locked up in a unique design of expression, to be convinced you just have to come back to his abstract work in the eighties.
Privileging his emotions to the fashion effects, Aldéhy is a free man.
Bright painting, tinted with humour and tenderness, rings out restrained sensitiveness accent.
“Atypical, with a brilliant technique skill, the work of Aldéhy should attract collectors’ attention without delay, that could hold the eyes’ pleasure and rising value.”
