Excellence is often found in the subtleness of the subconscious. Each canvas of Huot, is started with a pure abstract of color, texture, lines and shapes where he sees the human comedy unfold through everyday life between men and women. The subject and characters are found by him scrutinizing the subtleties of his canvas. It’s all there for me waiting to bring them to the surface.
